Newsweek Examines Mechanical Turk

Apparently I mis-remembered; the study was done by Newsweek, not a fancy academic research institution. http://www.newsweek.com/content/newsweek/2011/06/19/the-real-minimum-wage.html

Hippocampal Prosthetics

Not only is this mad science, but the head researchers are from schools in Southern California (USC) and Winston-Salem (Wake Forest)! A cortical neural prosthesis for restoring and enhancing memory http://iopscience.iop.org/1741-2552/8/4/046017

Super Slo-Mo Skill Expression

Red Bull has a nice series of videos with athletes performing while being recording at 1000 frames per second. Maybe we should use these videos for pre-instruction and see if we can create some mega-athletes. http://www.redbullusa.com/cs/Satellite/en_US/Sports/001242947016621

Operating Characteristics of the Implicit Learning System supporting Serial Interception Sequence Learning

Sanchez, D.J. & Reber, P.J. (2012). Operating characteristics of the implicit learning system supporting serial interception sequence learning. Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perception and Performance, 38(2), 439-452. The memory system that supports implicit perceptual-motor sequence learning relies on brain regions that operate separately from the explicit, medial temporal lobe memory system. The implicit learning …

COgnitive Neuroscience of Gaming Alliance I think we should form this thing. I find it amusing that we made a task inspired by video games, and other researchers are just like, “Why bother doing more work? Just use the video game!” Art Kramer’s stuff is apparently making its way across the tech blogosphere. Coolness. Wired: …

Scary Reality?

It’d be interesting to find out what sort of percentage of students take advantage of paper-writing mills. Either way, this is a pretty interesting article from someone who works at one. http://chronicle.com/article/The-Shadow-Scholar/125329/

Electrodes and Inception

It seems like dreaming and memory are still huge topics in popular science. I guess we can thank Hollywood (Eternal Sunshine, Inception). The article is about epileptic patients with intracranial electrodes and how they have particular MTL firing when viewing particular pictures. However, as it progresses across the internet and is re-written, some of the …

Feedback for Skill Perfection

It used to be that learning a skill required hours of painstaking practice, whereby one would attempt a feat over and over again while making fine-tuned adjustments to one’s performance. If you fell off your bike, you would climb back on. Then we were introduced to training wheels and self-balancing front wheels. Now it’s nigh …

Science of Spice

I found this Gizmodo article, which I found amusing since it was something that was recently brought up. http://gizmodo.com/5645331/why-do-humans-love-spicy-self+torture http://www.nytimes.com/2010/09/21/science/21peppers.html?_r=1 However, after recently being naive to a great deal of wasabi in my soy sauce , I tend to believe that the joy of spice is reserved for people prepared for it.
