Is Jesus Enough – Brant Hanson

This guy is my hero.

“… No, it’s not rational. But none of this is. And it was self-absorption, too, which gave me something else to feel failed about.

But I take a little pill, once a day, and wham — I can think about other people. I think I’m okay. I can sit and relax and fall asleep. I can be on the air, do something stupid, like I do daily, and move on. Happens to the best of ’em, you know? One little pill, and I’m a better person.


And that, friend, is the disturbing thing. As a Christian, I’m uncomfortable with purely mechanistic explanations for our behavior. Friends say, “What’s the struggle? Taking this pill is just like taking Tylenol for an ache.” But no. No, it’s not. I take this pill, and I’m morally better. I’m not kidding…”


New technique in brain studies

This video just came out from Nature. It seems that they’ve developed a fixation method that make tissue transparent without destroying or displacing the proteins. This allows for high resolution 3D analysis of cell structures within organs, something that was limited only to embryo’s and smaller tissues in the past.

Besides being cool science the video is definitely sweet just to enjoy!

Computers Decode Dreams With Brain Scans

Fascinating report involving the use of machine learning in dream decoding! The algorithm was trained by watching brain activity while hundreds of images were shown to subjects. Then brain activity during dreaming was input for the same subjects. It’s still VERY primitive, but the computer predict that the subject had dreamed about a car, not a chair. It only worked if the computer was given two choices, but still that’s rather impressive.

Two things I get from this, we are one step closer to ‘Minority Report’ and I need to finally get around to watching ‘Inception’.

Action Video Games may help Dyslexia


Video games FTW!  Well, actually the study doesn’t sound that solid and may not hold with more testing.  But the premise is reasonable and interesting:  Games forcing kids to process multiple inputs help them keep things straight while reading.

‘A Brain-to-Brain Interface for Real-Time Sharing of Sensorimotor Information’

I’ve been trying all day to figure out how to present this to you.  It’s so wild I’m not sure anything but the original publication can do it justice.  In the end I’ve decided post both the summary and the actual research article so you can take your pick.
