Nearly 100 new areas of the cerebral cortex have been distinguished in a new study this week in Nature.

This work was part of the government-funded Human Connectome Project, and these data have the potential to serve as the structural template to just about all future (and past) functional studies on cortical activity.

Check out the video for an easily understandable overview of the work.

I've wondered this for years. The best food in DC is in the cafeteria of the National Museum of the American Indian.
 
Why Hasn’t Native American Food Caught On as a ‘Hip' Cuisine? http://trib.al/RgpWhAY
American-Indian cooking has all the makings of a culinary trend, but it’s been limited by many diners’ unfamiliarity with its dishes and its loaded history.

Nice essay on the early origins of the guitar with accompanying at pieces from the MMA.
“The vihuela and guitar existed simultaneously until the seventeenth century, when the popularity of the guitar superseded the vihuela.”

Stunning movie stitched from Juno images during its approach to Jupiter.
"Celestial harmonic motion" was captured for the first time by NASA's Juno mission. It snapped imagery of Callisto, Ganymede, Europa and Io orbiting Jupiter on its approach to the gas giant. NASA, Juno Team Exult in Successful Jupiter Arrival By Jove! NASA Probe Arrives at Jupiter After 5-Year Trek

+intheblues Well, I have you to blame for at least one purchase. After you did the show from Jerry's in Florida, I had to have a Suhr Tele. Don't regret the decision at all.

Haven't checked this out yet, but it looks like an interesting and useful tool. And fun, too, if you're in to that kind of thing.
 
Introducing TensorFlow Playground, a nice visualization system that teaches you about neural networks and about the optimization process for training these models. Fun to play with! (Be sure to click the big "Play" button to get it started)
