Computer brain

Prediction: this little project will teach us nothing except what we think we already know about the brain.

In other words - it will teach us nothing new about the brain, but might serve to teach us some interesting things that happen when you program/build computers in novel ways.

Attention allocation

As practiced by Buddhist monks anyhow.

Subliminal learning

It looks like we may have identified a neurological mechanism for it - so maybe it isn't the bunk some say it is.

Time will tell.

So, this guy walks into this internet class....

Seems that humor used in online classes enhances learning - or so it seems.

Break out the joke book.

Familiar songs act as memory cues

Hmmm - maybe music in the classroom isn't such a bad idea.
