Glossary Term of the Day!
Inverse-square Law: The law that a field follows if its strength decreases with the square of the distance. Fields that follow the inverse square law rapidly decrease in strength as the distance increases, but never quite reach zero.

How the Brain Reconstructs Past Events

A new study shows that when someone tries to remember one aspect of an event, such as who they met yesterday, the representation of the entire event can be reactivated in the brain, including incidental information such as where they were and what they did.

The research is in Nature Communications. (full open access)

Great airport. Spacious with lots of natural light. Wonderful for dining, shopping and relaxing. Now there are "napcabs" too. But just find a nice quiet corner and there are plenty. Terminal 2 is my favorite place to hang out and I always transit through Munich. A big duty free shop with a wide range of chocolates, perfumes, gifts. Lots of wonderful places to eat. Check out "seafoodsylt". Free WiFi for 30 min and then you have to pay. Around 4 EUR for an hour or if you're transiting through Munich more than once within a month, go for the 10 hr internet pass for 20 EUR. Absolutely worth it. There are 4 free internet terminals on the way to gates 1-6, but obviously it's always occupied. There are quiet a few free power charging spots too. One that's easy to access is downstairs, near the gates for flights to Italy, right in front of the escalators. Lufthansa service center staff are very friendly and helpful. The airport isn't as spectacular as Changi (Singapore), but is among my most preferred airports.

A copy of my review from Yelp for J Wok. This place definitely gets a 5* from me on any day, any time. Absolutely delicious food and really wonderful, awesome waiters and waitresses out here. James (and the others) ware a pleasure to talk to and treated us like royalty. I tried at least 6-7 main dishes along with some starters and every one of them was incredibly delicious - so good that I remember the taste and experience even after a week now. If I ever go to SD again, this place will be my top spot for lunch or dinner on any day. Location is great and the ambience is perfect for a nice, enjoyable dinner. Price is great considering the quality of food, service and the overall experience. Be nice and one of the guys might even give you a discount card (just like they did for me). Be super nice and honest, they might even cook up a secret surprise desert on the house for you (just like James did on our last night/last dinner in SD)... :-) The Kung Pao Chicken was one of the best I've ever had. The Fresh Spring Rolls with peanut butter sauce was one of the freshest spring rolls I've had. The Yellow Chicken Curry Crispy Roll was fantastic (it was a top choice among me and my friends). The Pad Thai and Pad See Ew are.... just awesome. My suggestion: If you're hungry, if you want a good, luxurious, delicious meal for a great price, go here. You won't regret it. We were in SD for the Annual Neuroscience meeting at the convention centre and we were staying in Gaslamp Quarter - among all the very best memories we carried from SD, J Wok stands right up there..
