I'm all for self-studying, including going through an entire college curriculum on your own, in less time than a traditional four-year program. Based on several schools (Yale, Harvard, MIT, Johns Hopkins, University of Pennsylvania, and Oxford University) I have created a 1.5-year study curriculum in neuroscience, using open-courseware. A great online neuroscience teaser can be … Continue reading Self-study Neuroscience

I was listening to a lecture on computer functions and abstractions. A Turing complete computer is able to compute anything. That is, anything that is computable can be computer by a Turing complete computer. However, what even a Turing complete computer lacks is abstraction. Namely, you have to rebuild a file every time you want … Continue reading Our brains are more than Turing Complete
[Disclaimer: I know very little about computers and operating systems at this point, as I just started going back to college for my second BS, this time in CS. However, with my background in neuroscience, I can’t help but try to find parallels between what I already know about the brain and the things I’m … Continue reading Interpreters, Compilers, and Learning
However, after training, both the rats and the humans made fewer errors. In fact, electrophysiological brain recordings indicated that neural responses to the non-target, or distracting, tones were decreased.
