Neurodata without Borders, a clever use of Hierarchical Data Format, a huge incentive for more availability of neuroscience data and more interaction in the neuroscience community. I hope to see great discoveries as these initiatives unfold.

Sprinkling of Neural Dust Opens Door to Electroceuticals

University of California, Berkeley engineers have built the first dust-sized, wireless sensors that can be implanted in the body, bringing closer the day when a Fitbit-like device could monitor internal nerves, muscles or organs in real time.

The research is in Neuron. (full open access)

Should we be afraid instead of praise unanimity?

Connectome as a promising predictor of fluid intelligence.

Neuroscientists have used maps of people’s brains to accurately predict intelligence

"By intelligence, in this case, the scientists mean abstract reasoning ability, which they inferred by mapping and analyzing the connections within people’s brains. But the study, published today in Nature, is compelling because it gets at a fundamental and very uncomfortable truth: Some brains are better than others at certain things, simply because of the way they’re wired. And now, scientists are closer to being able to determine precisely which brains those are, and how they got that way."
