Fraser Cain779,548Super Science Circle - May 2013 EditionNeed more science in your Google+? Well, here's all the science you can handle! Enjoy my latest, heavily curated edition of the Super Science Circle.Please share this circle... for Science!For the uninitiated, I maintain a circle of 450+ people who are active on Google+ and regularly post on Google+. In this circle you'll find scientists, journalists, astronauts, educators, and science enthusiasts. By importing this circle into your own circles, you'll immediately gain a vibrant and fascinating feed of amazing science stories.I recognize that it might be too much science, so I suggest you create a brand new temporary circle and evaluate the people in the circle. Only transfer the keepers to your permanent circles. Then, when I update the circle next month, rinse and repeat.Are you active on G+ and regularly post about science? +mention me and I'll check out your profile.Remember, please share this post2013-05-22 19:26:51456348088

През изминалите месеци съм търсил и добавял почти всичко, което може да се намери в полето на научната психология, така че това е един вид кръг "всичко в едно". That's a circle of people and pages in the scientific field of psychology, that I follow. Trough the last several mounts I've searched and selected this circle in a "everything in one" approach.  #sharedcircles   #science   #psychology  2013-03-05 22:47:44109001

Auditory pitch has an intrinsic spatial connotation: Sounds are high or low, melodies rise and fall, and pitch can ascend and descend. In a wide range of cognitive, perceptual, attentional, and linguistic functions, humans consistently display a positive, sometimes absolute, correspondence between sound frequency and perceived spatial elevation, whereby high frequency is mapped to high elevation. In this paper we show that pitch borrows its spatial connotation from the statistics of natural auditory scenes. This suggests that all such diverse phenomena, such as the convoluted shape of the outer ear, the universal use of spatial terms for describing pitch, or the reason why high notes are represented higher in musical notation, ultimately reflect adaptation to the statistics of natural auditory scenes.

Language-related brain regions: similarities and differences) between monkeys and humans.
A new study compared (fMRI) ventrolateral frontal cortex, a key structure for language but also decision-making and cognitive flexibility, in humans and monkeys. The authors found surprising similarities in the connectivity. At the same time, however, they showed  key differences in the way that they interact with brain areas involved with hearing. The data might give hints on the evolutionary processes underpinning our ties to other primates but also drove to distinctions.

A picture of a model of the first MEG system, of the first MEG measurement ever, an ECG, and of the first MEG measurement of brain activity, alpha rhythm.

I find it personally amusing that these "firsts" are actually what often decreases the power of our analyses and gets thrown away through either ICA (ECG) or averaging (ECG - unless you are very unlucky - and stimulus-unrelated alpha).

#neuroscience   #hearing   #MVPA  

We are surrounded by largely different sound-producing "objects": a thunder rumbling, a baby crying, a fly buzzing. How do brains represent them? In this study, we show that rather fine-grained spatial variations in cortical activity contain a great deal of information about naturalistic sounds. Spatial activity patterns not only contain information about low-level sound properties (e.g., loudness), but appear to go beyond low-level analyses by representing abstractly whether sound-producing objects are living, or involve the activity of a human agent.

#science #openaccess

Elsevier will hate you sympathizers.....

It began with a frustrated blogpost by a distinguished mathematician. Tim Gowers and his colleagues had been grumbling among themselves for several years about the rising costs of academic journals.

They, like many other academics, were upset that the work produced by their peers, and funded largely by taxpayers, sat behind the paywalls of private publishing houses that charged UK universities hundreds of millions of pounds a year for the privilege of access.

There had been talk last year that a major scientific body might come out in public to highlight the problem and rally scientists to speak out against the publishing companies, but nothing was happening fast.

So, in January this year, Gowers wrote an article on his blog declaring that he would henceforth decline to submit to or review papers for any academic journal published by Elsevier, the largest publisher of scientific journals in the world.

He was not expecting what happened next. Thousands of people read the post and hundreds left supportive comments. Within a day, one of his readers had set up a website, The Cost of Knowledge, which allowed academics to register their protest against Elsevier.

The site now has almost 9,000 signatories, all of whom have committed themselves to refuse to either peer review, submit to or undertake editorial work for Elsevier journals. "I wasn't expecting it to make such a splash," says Gowers. "At first I was taken aback by how quickly this thing blew up."___ #science #openaccess

Interactive 3D model of the human brain

The Brain Surface and Tractography Viewer was developed by Dan Ginsburg and +Rudolph Pienaar. The different colours represent the different directions of the neural tracks. Inferior/superior are blue, lateral/medial are red, and anterior/posterior are green.

Take a look: goo.gl/dx6qI - (requires Google Chrome)

The imagery is not as detailed as the static pictures posted by +Owen Phillips earlier this week. But it's nice to be able to interact with it, to rotate and explore the inner connectivity of the brain. Note, this requires a WebGL enabled browser such as Chrome, Firefox, or Safari.
