BrainJuicer - Fast Feedback, Freshly Squeezed

A couple of years ago, I worked with John Kearon of Brainjuicer to create a Jungian collective unconscious research project. I am happy to say it has been developing nicely on it's own, and to quote one random user, has become spookily sentient. You can get to it by going to (above) and then clicking on Demo Juicers and then "Experimental 'I say, you say' Juicer" under "Experimental Juicers". Let me know what you think.

Josie Appleton's got a write up of the Better Humans debate at the Wellcome last week. "Speculation is running way ahead of the science, said Glaser: 'We don't even know properly how our brains work.'" captured my position pretty well, although I argued that our ignorance puts the developments more into the technology than the science category.

Matlab for Cognitive Neuroscience

I'm doing a couple of half days of Matlab instruction, particularly directed towards people who want to use if for SPM and Cogent. 10:00am - 1:00pm on Tue 14 Feb 2006 and Thu 16 Feb 2006 at the ICN. It's part of the UCL Grad School training programme (a concept I support), so students will have to register for it here.

Sometimes you meet an old friend after a few years and they are so fabulous, just like you remember, but reanimated; they've grown and developed all the time you haven't seen them but still retained the things which excited you then; the fact that they have done so much makes it feel like you never parted; that's yugop, completely different, just like he always is. (The most imaginative interactive web design there is.)

Online test: Listening displeasure

BBC NEWS | Listening displeasure is an article by my friend and colleague Lauren Stewart in which she points to an online test for amusia. She says 20,000 people have tried it since the BBC ran the story. I'm quite interested in kosher online psychology. My mate Dave Perrett has a Perception Lab with other good examples.
