Reactivation (of blogs, brains, etc.)

After a hiatus of more than a year, I’ve decided to try reactivating this jolly ol’ blog. As before, my plan is to periodically share commentary on various interesting happenings in neuroscience and artificial intelligence.

As for myself, for the past year I’ve been doing research using transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to reactivate recently-viewed visual percepts in occipital cortex. The basis of the work can be found in the PhD thesis of my colleague Daw-An Wu, titled “How perception adheres color to objects and surfaces : studies using visual illusions and transcranial magnetic stimulation.” At some point I’ll elaborate on the directions we’ve been pursuing in the past year, which have had some rather fascinating results.
