Neuro Transmissions is on the other social medias too: – new website!

This video is a parody of the song “Work From Home” opb Fifth Harmony and falls under fair use for the following reasons:
1. The purpose of the video is for nonprofit educational purposes.
2. The song is a parody and is transformative in nature – both with lyrics and intent. Minimal source material was used to indicate that the song is a parody and all lyrics have been changed.
3 It adds new meaning to the song that was not intended or covered in the source material. This song details the trials and tribulations of a graduate student in the sciences, particularly neuroscience.
4. The parody does not infringe on or compete with the source material due to its nature, audience, and message. Any reasonable individual would not confuse this parody with the source material.

All other content is original and/or owned by Neuro Transmissions.
