I'm studying computational neuroscience... The thing I just handed in was a model of a small part of rat somatosensory cortex, but the project wasn't very successful.

I actually don't have to do a defense or anything for this - it was a funny course with two dissertations... anyway I'm transitioning now to the PhD (same departments/supervisor) which is (since you asked!) on information theoretic methods for the analysis of neural data :?

So there!

Be careful where you say those things. Let me know if you need any math opinions, tho' I make no guarantees about my abilities to help.

Sound's interesting.

Thanks - actually my original undergraduate degree was maths as well, so with this I'm ok with that stuff but the biology is all new...

It's nice to be doing something so much more applied than I was before...

Gym day - workout B

back squat 5x5 - 25kg
bench press 5x5 - 20kg
deadlift 3x5 - 25kg
pullups 3x5 - 20kg assist

abs - slow incline bench situps with hold
stretching

first time on the bench press so it was a bit wobbly... everything else was fine.

I guessed as much.

I minored in Physical Education - which included a fair amount of Bio and Physiology. Fun stuff to blend the 2. From what I understand it's still a growing field with lots of research to be done. My wife has a cousin who works with roaches to study robotics. They actually have a way of mapping the movements and repeating them on a scaled-up model.
