  1. The exact nature of sensory integration and coordination with the external physical environment represents one of the most fundamental questions of biology. Many animals are born with visual structures intact, yet never with fully developed visual acuity. Humans are no exception. So how exactly do organisms learn to measure and navigate their external environment? Eyesight does not provide the proper baseline "learning" mechanism, e.g. a fundamental feedback response that can be measured and evaluated and encoded. Yet it seems the fascination with HD tv's and "selfie" technology has
  2. Generally, when we look at a mirror, we do not attribute a color to it. That is because we are not thinking of the mirror as we look at it, but rather whatever it is we are using the mirror to reflect; therefore, to us, the mirror is the color of whatever it is we're using it to observe. However, presume you had a flawlessly polished ball of some aluminum alloy; one would generally agree, observing this ball, that it is grayish/silverish in color. However, upon closer inspection, it would be revealed that, much like a mirror, it simply reflects all colors around it, also simply being whatever
  3. An interesting paper was recently released on bilingualism and how it affects gray and white matter in brain structures of adults. The study was conducted by a group of UK-based researchers at the University of Reading. Highly recommend, it's a good read. Source
  4. The idea of not relying on drugs is so interesting. This neuroscientist actually just gave a talk about ways to fix depression/addiction/mental illness without any drugs: http://bit.ly/1D1Y5BE In the video he suggests that one of the best ways to move forward and combat issues such as drug addiction and mental illnesses is by taking advantage of neural plasticity and changing parts of the brain that are responsible for these illnesses. Unlike drugs, this results in little to no side effects and is a lot less broad. Although this is very new technology test have shown nearly 33% remission
  5. Hi I am interested in making the Nerve Gear but I believe that the main problem with developing it is the 'writing' part. What I mean by that, is the transfer of information from the Nerve Gear to the brain. So I made this topic to brainstorm the possible ways of doing this. The important part to remember is not to try and make it like the nerve gear (Therefore just thinking of non-invasive methods) but just to make it work. So to start it off. As another member said: I think its near impossible to stimuate individuals axons, so we are going to have to stimulate entire nerves. E.G. If
  6. https://vimeo.com/138098422 Dear all, I've just finished the above promo for my documentary-in-progress on the evolving science of consciousness. I have interviewed over 40 top neuroscientists and philosophers, including Dan Dennett, Bernard Baars, Thomas Metzinger, Susan Blackmore and many more. It's a fun ride into the baffling world of your inner experience. If you enjoy the video, please share it with friends!
