New publication out: The Superficial White Matter in Alzheimer's disease -
http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/hbm.23105/abstract

this was only possible because of the amazing always encouraging +Shantanu Joshi
And hey, +Ryan Cabeen, this is a continuation of some of the work we were doing together back in 2010, so thanks again for helping to get this approach going.

Two totally unrelated world events.....
"China is laying the groundwork for a robot revolution by planning to automate the work currently done by millions of low-paid workers."
"Finland plans to give every citizen a basic income of 800 euros a month"

Finland wants to scrap all existing benefits and instead hand out 800 euros per month—to everyone.

It will be very interesting to see what the result will be.

I was recently in Austria recently for a Human Brain Project workshop on future computing. I gave a short presentation of some of my work but was more excited for the opportunity to play around with their neuromorphic chips and simulation software. The HBP is a fascinating project with great people and it was a blast to hang out with them. As always, the most interesting discussions took place over dinner or a beer :)

We’re in the midst of a jobs crisis, and rapid advances in AI and other technologies may be one culprit. How can we get better at sharing the wealth that technology creates?

If you're into the AI and interested in the effect it is/will have, this is an interesting 5 minutes worth listening to. --- via +John Hagel

This is like saying that one could fix a shredded book by turning it to pulp and making paper from it. It isn't the neuronal tissue that matters, but the connections that were there before the dammage. Kodak used to supply a brand new roll of film if they lost or damaged the one you sent in to be developed. Not exactly the same as replacement of the lost photographic moments captured on the lost roll.

Some personal news: After about 4 years in Rome, Italy, I will be leaving to continue neuroscience research at Stanford University.

And hey! Finding an apartment in the bay area is a nightmare, if anyone has any advice or knows of a place along/near the caltrain line to Stanford, let me know! :)

Go +Yuri Shprits ! 

Yuri Shprits, - "“This structure is pretty close to the Earth, which is important because people want to understand the environment where satellites operate,” Shprits says. “Usually plasma undergoes a number of different instabilities, and waves tend to move from one region in space to another, so everything you see is noisy, very short-lived, and on smaller scales. But this structure seems to be very persistent, highly coherent in space, and was remarkably organized and structured, which we didn’t know could exist to such high degree.”

The structure may help scientists identify radiation-remediation strategies in space.

Is it just me, or does the Oculus look like the dorkiest looking fashion accessory you could ever wear?
