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!
Scientists convince their friends to get punched in the arm by robots... for science. I'm assigning this article to my intro modeling class to try and get them thinking about AI representations. A rob...

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.

I love my vampire SDT lecture so much..... I am sad that I don't actually get to give it (my TAs do all the lecturing for this course)

Facepalm bear and oh noes paper bag head guy with his head on fire truly capture how I feel about plagiarism in my courses.

New post on the LAUG:  Part II of my True Blood Fan Fic / Introduction to Computational Modeling.  Activation Functions, WITH VAMPIRES!
The Activation Function Remember, the goal of this network is to answer questions like “If I date young vampire and old vampire simultaneously, how much danger will I be in?” or “Is it more dangerous ...

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.

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.

New post on the LAUG:  How my research explores new diagnostic tools for children at risk for dyslexia.  
Consider the following scenario: two children are identified in school as having a specific reading impairment. This is a common scenario in the United States, where between 17.5 and 36% of elementary...

New post on the LAUG: It's hard to focus on Bradley Cooper's shocking eye color while distracted by being a neurological pedant. Probably safer to observe him in old Alias episodes.
