Over at Mind Hacks, Vaughan has been posting some remarkable brain-related news. Some top picks:
- A brain-computer interface to compose music, home made, using EEG.
- The origins of the word 'stress.'
- Regarding how ideas spread through social networks, it's the masses, not the 'opinion formers', who matter.
- Steven Pinker, moral judgements, and how shifting a topic from a personal to moral issue brings a specific, difference reasoning framework into play.
- Christian Nold's biomaps.
My favourite is the ambient panic video, overlaying dreamy suburban visuals on this radio documentary about panic (All In The Mind). It's Adam Curtis meets Lucid Dreams. Watch.
