Science on Google+653,024Please join us for _Developmental Science HOA_, a new collaborative Hangout On Air series which is co-hosted by @105917944266111687812 and @101300484336332917485. In the first Developmental Science HOA we will be talking with Dr. @105599496459565727178. @105599496459565727178 is a Professor of Cognitive Science and Human Development at @117506114004660150074 and is the director of the @113073858999174005281. @105599496459565727178 studies the dynamics of infant social interactions and social learning, using experimental behavioral paradigms, ethnographic investigations, physiological studies, and computer simulations. He and his collaborators conducted the first study of real-time interactions between parents and toddlers with high-density EEG and motion capture of both participants. He also studies how children learn and use words, and how they flexibly shift their attention, representations, and inferences. *Important Links* Curriculum Vitae: http://goo.gl/qLtUaC Lab Website: http://goo.gl/AQ78h6 ResearchGate: http://goo.gl/Mj8deH *Relevant Papers* Watch the hands: infants can learn to follow gaze by seeing adults manipulate objects: http://goo.gl/bSMzKy Young children’s fast mapping and generalization of words, facts, and pictograms :http://goo.gl/nhykZF A Unified Account of Gaze Following: http://goo.gl/f14c04 Micro-analysis of infant looking in a naturalistic social setting: insights from biologically based models of attention: http://goo.gl/i0S8uA Visual Prediction in Infancy: What is the Association with Later Vocabulary? :http://goo.gl/I1xUaS Please note that some of the papers are behind a paywall.

U.S. Department of State390,815On Tuesday, June 17th the U.S. Department of State, Office of Global Partnerships will host a Google+ Hangout with 5 (yet to be named) finalists for the fishackathon. What is a fishackathon? Held concurrently with Secretary Kerry's Our Ocean Conference, the Fishackathons partner fishery experts with technologists to create innovative technology which address sustainable fishery challenges. Fishery experts will define the challenges to guide technologists in creating concrete solutions that will make real and sustainable impacts. ~~CALLING ALL HACKERS~~ If you have design, coding, or project management skills, join your local Fishackathon to help design solutions for sustainable fishing while protecting the welfare of small-scale fisheries in the developing world.

The Chemical Behind Catnip's Effects on Cats

CATNIP: EGRESS TO OBLIVION?

- 4aα,7α,7aα-Nepetalactone is the specific isomer responsible for the catnip effect

☠ Firstly, nepetalactone will enter the cat’s nasal tissue, and there it will bind to certain receptors.

☠ These can then trigger particular sensory neurons to signal to other neurons, and eventually the brain; in particular, the ‘olfactory bulb’, a region at the front of the brain responsible for processing smells.

☠ This region then signals other regions of the brain, including the amygdala, responsible for emotional responses to stimuli, and the hypothalamus, responsible for behavioural responses to stimuli.

☠ This results in the observed response in cats – a response that is actually similar to their response to natural sexpheromones.

☠ This results in the observed response in cats – a response that is actually similar to their response to natural sex pheromones.

☠ The effect of catnip lasts for around ten minutes, and afterwards there will be a refractory period of around an hour where the cat will remain unaffected.

☠ Interestingly, not all cats are affected by catnip; the response is genetic, and autosomal dominant, which means if one parent passes on the gene, then the offspring will inherit the response.

So awesome.

I've seen some cleverly carved pumpkins before, but these amazing pumpkin carvings by Ray Villafane elevates tradition into the realm of art. Born into a poor farming family, he found himself having to whittle his own toys out of wood for his amusement. He eventually had to turn to pumpkins as his medium of choice when even that became too exorbitant. Luckily his early trials also honed his artistic skills to the point where he's able to bring out shockingly realistic scenes and faces out of mere pumpkins. Jump past the break to see more examples of his wonderful pumpkin art, just make sure you haven't had lunch yet. Some of them are too realistic ;)

+Veronica Belmont as well as several others posted a fun easter egg today: http://goo.gl/N4rh1 This one was do a Google search for "do a barrel roll", press Enter after. Click here http://goo.gl/G0WZ4 to see.

So naturally I had to look up more on google search:

Open up reader.google.com and press: up arrow, up arrow, down arrow, down arrow, left arrow, right arrow, left arrow, right arrow, B, A". Still works with the reader refresh.

Search for "a bakers dozen"

Search for "anagram"

Search for "the loneliest number"

Search for "ascii art"

Search for "the number of horns on a unicorn"
