This week’s Brain Activity Map (#BAM) initiative really got some media traction. For those looking for a well-written lay explanation, it doesn’t get any better than Baylor’s David Eagleman in today’s NYT, here.
I’m off tomorrow to a Sandia Workshop where I’ll be directly addressing BAM…
I barely made my connection in Denver, and arrived after midnight, but I’m back for the weekend, before heading out again Monday to a meeting in Helsinki.
As usual, the meeting at Sandia National Laboratory was extremely interesting and the scientific discussions fruitful. The Lab’s efforts in cognitive sciences are really beginning to show pay-off.
In the meantime, a day to catch up on work at the Institute…..
One minor leak, otherwise no problems. As many of you know, there was more rain than wind.
I’m off to Sandia National Labs today to learn about their efforts in cognitive sciences.
Am really pleased that the Decade of the Mind IV Symposium’s web site is now up. Check out the link and the program!
This academic year is now in the final stretch. I’m heading to a cook out this evening celebrating the end of the semester for one of our centers. Just left a meeting going over the final draft of a thesis before a PhD defense and it’s getting time to check out my academic regalia and see whether it has survived another winter without become moth gourmet food….commencement isn’t far off.
Next week I’ll be at Sandia National Labs for a scientific meeting with a Russian scientific delegation. Hopefully I’ll be able to blog from the road. The Institute’s ties to New Mexico are extensive. It will be good to be back. At that meeting, I’ll be talking about our upcoming “Decade of the Mind” Symposium on May 21st and 22nd. I hope that our Russian colleagues can pick up some of the excitement that “mind research” is generating here at Krasnow.
