Blocking Immune System Pathway May Stop COVID-19 Infection, Prevent Severe Organ Damage While the world waits eagerly for a safe and effective vaccine to prevent infections from severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), the virus...
Gunnar BlohmPotentially some good news. A way to stop the body's inflammatory response to Covid...
For the first time, climate scientists have compiled a continuous, high-fidelity record of variations in Earth's climate extending 66 million years into the past. The record reveals four distinctive climate states, which the researchers dubbed...
By Konrad P. Kording, Gunnar Blohm & 2 more. This Commentary from Kording and colleagues discusses the variety of goals and desiderata for modeling work in computational neuroscience.
Gunnar BlohmFinally officially out!
We argue that diversity and modeling goals is real and beneficial for science. Amd that you should always explicitly state your goals...
Great fun with @KordingLab, @Schrater_Lab and Kendrick Kai
The Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets, which hold enough frozen water to lift oceans 65 metres, are tracking the UN's worst-case scenarios for sea level rise, researchers said Monday, highlighting flaws in current climate change models.
Gunnar BlohmWorst case scenario is happening right now... Yikes!
Rock-climb without fear. Play a symphony in your head. See radar with superhuman vision. Discover the nature of consciousness. Cure blindness, paralysis, deafness, and mental illness. Those are just a few of the applications that Elon Musk and...
The ability to make a perceptual decision depends both on sensory inputs and on internal
cognitive state. Cowley et al. find a slow drift embedded in populations of neurons
in visual and prefrontal cortex. Rather than biasing sensory evidence, the...
Perception is a process of inference, integrating sensory inputs with prior expectations. However, little is known regarding the temporal dynamics of this integration. It has been proposed that expectation plays a role early in the perceptual...
Gunnar BlohmInteresting paper. Very much in line with our work on smooth pursuit being influenced by history through a build-up of expectation! And also re decision making...
Sampling simulated data can reveal common ways in which our cognitive biases mislead us.
Gunnar BlohmScientists should not be allowed to handle p-values without safety training! (Paraphrased)
Awesome article by @deevybee!
Also: you should always simulate your statistical analysis! Totally agree! This should become standard in all papers!
