Thought I would start a thread where users can contribute links to news stories that may be related to the project. Albeit loosely related in most cases, there are some interesting articles that pop up, and might be of interest to those reading into the science of the project. Though there won\'t be many directly related in the mainstream news I\'m sure there will be many interesting stories in the same field, and none the less interesting.

Researchers identify similarities between dreams and psychotic thoughts

Schizophrenics may think similar to the way \"normal\" (I use the term loosely) people dream.

This research looks like it has potential to go into a very promising direction. Will have to keep an eye out for other research on this topic.

Roadrunner supercomputer puts research at a new scale

The Roadrunner supercomputer (the worlds fastest achieving petaflop/s speed)
has been turned to modeling neurological processes mimicking vision.

Los Alamos National Laboratory Press Release:

Quote:


Based on the results of PetaVision’s inaugural trials, Los Alamos researchers believe they can study in real time the entire human visual cortex—arguably a human being’s most important sensory apparatus.
