neuroscience and biology resources

Summary

A continually updated repository of scientific resources (journals, blogs, etc.) in biology with a focus on neuroscience.

sources of information

Finding information on the cutting edge often requires wading deep in the primary literature. For this i turn to a variety of journals and resources, most of which allow me to discover articles that seem interesting or with possible applications in neuroscience. While summaries by journalists are often useful for getting a bit of history and other layman interpretations, it is often better for one's understanding to dive right into the original publications, reviews, and articles.

Below is a list of sources that are useful for staying up-to-date. It is by no means comprehensive and will be continually updated. Suggestions welcome!

the evolving style
29 march 2012 | design

This website was built from scratch using only Notepad. While it would have been easier to create the site in Dreamweaver or another pr[...]ogram and then upload it, I wanted to learn first-hand about the steps involved in web development. The site has allowed me to hone my design skills, both aesthetically and organizationally. This is an essay detailing the evolution of the website.

This was an internal document for me to keep track of what I was changing and why, but decided to reword it and make it an article. Hope you like it.

a lasting impression
09 september 2012 | short story

It is a century and a half in the future and I am staring at my grave. Vines crawl up the sides and bits of stone have fallen off in pl[...]aces. Across the top my name is barely visible and the dates of my birth have long since been worn away. I look around the graveyard, at my friends, enemies, confidants and others. All of them are fading, the last vestiges of their existence being worn away by wind and rain. I hear a beep to my left and sigh. The machine only gives me ten minutes per jaunt into the future. And there is no going back, only forward by ten year increments. I started it twenty-four hours ago if my watch is to be believed...

A story about a man's legacy.
