The Synaptic Leap is not responsible for, nor do we lay claim to, any scientific discoveries made or discussed on our site.

In general scientific discoveries placed in the public domain, i.e. this web site, can not subsequently be the subject of a patent.  You can of course work around this by posting only pieces of the science here and holding back sufficient information for a patent. However, the aim of The Synaptic Leap is to encourage open and collaborative science. The more open the better. We hope that you will openly discuss and pursue collaborative scientific discoveries using our site.  
Any discussions, blogs or other content authored by you is presumed to be copyright protected according to the Creative Commons Attribution 2.5 License. If you wish to have a different copyright policy for something you post, we recommend that you describe your specific copyright limitations e.g. "All rights reserved."
