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!

filugori reboot
15 may 2012 | filugori

Several months ago I took a hard look at Filugori: The Long Tale, the story I started in grade school that was meant to be a mash-[...]up of my favorite books and fictional universes. However, it lacked a certain vision. The story was fun, frantic and fanciful, but there was no heart. It lacked cohesion and the universe did not appear to justify its own existence. Why should someone care to read this tale? What would they gain from it? While fleshing out the background of the universe, providing details on the four major epochs that define the story, I came to realize that I wanted to tell a very different tale than originally planned.

15 december 2012 | stanford

Designed by architect Richard Olcott (Ennead Architects) and sound designer Dr. Yasuhisa T[...]oyota (Nagata Acoustics), the Bing Concert Hall is stunning. Robert Campbell (Fisher Dachs Associates) was on hand during the second sound check (along with Richard and Dr. Toyota) to discuss the philosophy behind the building, a bit of history, and where they hope it will be in the future. This post is my impressions of the place along with notes from their interview.
