Hi Everyone,
I'm an assistant professor of Psychology and Linguistics at Binghamton University.  I use human electrophysiology and computational modeling to study language comprehension and development.

I find the coolest stuff while looking for readings for my undergrad courses...  This time, an article about robotics researchers being punched in the arm by robots... FOR SCIENCE!

I just can't help myself:  In general I find Signal Detection Theory so boring that I can't force myself to make lecture slides about it unless they involve vampires in some way.  In this case the age old question:  To Stake or Not To Stake.

writing this lecture about signal detection using the premise "how much evidence of vampirism do you need to stake someone through the heart in a creepy parking lot after a crowded showing of dracula"

My students don't know how good they have it.

Any electrical engineers out there in my feed land that have any tips about what to do about sloppy parallel port transitions (i.e., the receiving parallel device doesn't read multi-bit transitions simultaneously and thus interprets a single supposed to be simultaneous multi-bit transition as multiple single bit transitions)?  It seems that what I need is some sort of software buffering on the sending parallel device but I can't figure out how to do it.

Part 3 of my ongoing series on beginner connectionism and True Blood.  Last year, apparently 90% of my students didn't understand what a hidden unit was until the last week of lectures.  Thus, I fixate on the concept here.
