The photo above was taken in 2004, when Ezequiel Morsella (right) and his brother, Juan Manuel, explored the Parana River system in Argentina. Ezequiel Morsella, professor of neuroscience and fiction writer, was the youngest of five brothers, born in Buenos Aires but raised in Miami since the age of six. He conducted his doctoral research at Columbia University and his postdoctoral training at Yale. He is now a faculty member at San Francisco State University and the department of neurology at University of California, San Francisco. His research on the brain's conscious and unconscious processes involved in action production (a topic that he has investigated since high school) has led to more than forty scientific publications, including two books: Oxford Handbook of Human Action, and Expressing Oneself/Expressing One's Self: Communication, Cognition, Language, and Identity. In 2010, Morsella was honored to be nominated along with six other neuroscientists/psychologists for the Virtual Nobel Prize in Psychology (organized by the University of Klagenfurt, Austria). His fiction has appeared in literary journals such as Italian Americana and can now all be found in The Octopus Wars. His stories take place during the forties in the wine-making immigrant province of Mendoza, Argentina, where his father, the writer Astur Morsella, was raised. After living in Miami till his early twenties and graduating from the University of Miami (BA, 1996), Ezequiel Morsella resided in New York City for ten years. He now lives with his family in San Francisco.
