Study found that is possible to predict judgments from brain waves

Interesting article reporting the findings of a new study on consciousness and on how people make immediate judgments. A new study has found that people make immediate judgments about images they are shown — which could have an impact on their decisions — even before their brains have had time to consciously process the information.

Christof Koch on ‘conscious technology’

Last week MIT Technology Review published a very interesting interview with Christof Koch, chief scientific officer of the Allen Institute for Brain Science in Seattle, and we would like to share it with you. Is a worm conscious? How about a bumblebee? Does a computer that can play chess “feel” anything? To Christof Koch, chief scientific … Continue reading

Microsoft’s RoomAlive: the ultimate immersive gaming experience

Microsoft has just revealed a new project called RoomAlive, a new system that projects content throughout a room that you can interact with (see video below). RoomAlive uses multiple Kinects to detect where the walls are and projectors to send holographic images accordingly, enabling immersive 360-degree gaming. Microsoft claims that it’s completely auto-calibrating and self-locating, enabling it to calculate … Continue reading

How can our brain … Continue reading

Thunder to help neuroscientists analyze big data

Developed at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute’s Janelia Research Campus, Thunder is a new library of tools that speeds the analysis of data sets that are so large and complex they would take days or weeks to analyze on a single workstation. For example, Thunder was used by Jeremy Freeman, Misha Ahrens, and other colleagues at Janelia … Continue reading
