F1000 recommendation

Sup's Neuron paper is given an "exceptional" rating on F1000:

Geoffery Goodhill and Brendan Bicknell write:  "Netrin-1 was the textbook example of chemotropic guidance, and one of the very few examples of putative guidance factors ever observed in a gradient in vivo. These new results suggest a shift in thinking about axon guidance more broadly, and may prove to be a major turning point in the field."
