Encephalon #23 Arrives May 23, 2007
Posted by Johan in Links.
Madam Fathom hosts the 23rd issue of Neuroscience blogging carnival Encephalon. It’s quite a good write-up, and I’m feeling the pressure – the next issue will be hosted here, on June 4. Contributions go to encephalon.host(at)gmail.com, as usual.
Some favourites from this issue:
Developing Intelligence offers a scathing attack on reductionism. I’m not sure if I agree with the analysis, but it’s an interesting read.
Memoirs of a Postgrad contributes a review of theories of embodied cognition and how these relate to AI research.
Finally, Neurozone has a post relating mirror neurons to language. I actually found this interesting, which, given my profound disinterest in psycholinguistics, must mean that the post is quite extraordinary.
