My original formation was mathematical and a doctor in Biological Sciences. My specialities, experimental design and biological models in artificial intelligence (Neural networks, genetic algorithms....).

Precisely what I would've gotten into, if I didn't start with technical sciences. Wow, pretty cool and impressive field.
Such combination is however impossible here.

So how did the fortune lead you to bananas?
Thnx to Marcel, Ante, Dr. Chiranjit Parmar and Francesco for the plants I've received.

Jalon, at the university I attended for psychology (Columbia University in the City of New York), I remember a cognitive psychology class dealing with maps and templates and algorithms of cognition. The hardest psych class I took! My area was the effects of drugs taken during pregnancy on the offspring, with a focus on methadone and behavioral teratology. Welcome!

Saltydad, interesting field. Those of us who are older remember well all the problems of the methadone.

Sewerin, here, the majority is too big. In Madrid there are eight public ones and enough private mas. The Complutense one is the major one and more ancient.

Jack Daw, it is a long story. I like the tropical world a lot and I have travelled a little there. The plants with a tropical aspect, which can be cultivated in not tropical sites are bananas and palms. For years I have been interested in both.
In addition, I want to be the first one in obtaining eatable banana trees in Cantabria (North of Spain, humid, cloudy and green).
