from the "esoteric historical footage" department, Pharyngula links to a bunch of movies of squid giant axon research including big names like JZ Young and Hodgkin (Hodgkin and Huxley developed the basic axon model for all neurobiology working with squids, as far as I know this was the only cephalopod-related Nobel Prize.)

Anyway, those of you into historical electrophysiology in neuroscience will doubtless enjoy these... (see also Young Frankenstein)
