Few days ago I was updating my LinkedIN profile with my skills and experience when I decided to do something different: rather than displaying a detailed list of my skills and the description of my current job, I have fleshed out what I LIKE and what I don’t LIKE about my job (science, neuroscience). It Read
How to build a web App to retrieve and rank scientific RSS feeds : part 2 The advantage of working with scientific RSS feeds relies on the fact that titles and abstracts are highly informative and structured. Ideally we could read just the last sentence of the abstract to get a sense of the background Read
Good news on the front of the development of the scientific feeds retriever: @neuromusic transferred the python code to his github account! There is now a repository named sciple-rss.py that you can play with. Now that people with a “serious” background in computational/software development will be able to put their hands on it, I feel Read
Hold your horses, neuroscientists!! … app has nothing to do with the Alzheimer Precursor Protein. We are talking about something different: app in the sense that “there is an app for that“! App(lications) are everywhere, they help us to find, to play, to discover, to book and -sometimes- to waste an unbelievable amount of time… Read
As you may now, the society for neuroscience meeting – SfN (2012) is about to start. The app team has been very busy working on the app (HackSFN), launching the app, reading the feedback from twitter (@hacksfn, #hacksfn) and implementing new features. The app is simple, neat and brilliant: you can upvote #sfn12 presentations , Read
A brand new name for our web app: HUBBIAN.com (formerly HackS*N) HUBBIAN is a mix between HUB and HEBBIAN Hubbian does exactly the same job as HackS*N did, but does it better! We now can save a list of preferred abstracts and transfer this to the server using a username and password. and best of Read
I am a scientist (well I was trained as a scientist, thank God I am much more than a scientist!). But today I AM a scientist attending a big conference (The society for neuroscience annual meeting – #sfn12). My biggest concern is to efficiently navigate this conference: how can I discover the sessions, posters and Read
“let me do something that I’ve never done before: I want to dedicate this blog post to @jsnsndr. we shared the same lab for a very short but intense period. it was fun! I will miss him and his questions during lab meeting. I wish him all the best with his own brand-new lab in Read
It is about time for me to look for a job (…a serious one). I am applying for PI position, group leader or “some kind of scientist who does science in a science lab”. I am working on my CV and I just noted how boring it is to read (proof read) a list of Read
Associate Professor of Psychobiology and Physiological Psychology Dept. of Psychology, University of Milan-Bicocca Lab website Twitter Sci.Ple: What is your background? I graduated in Experimental Psychology at University of Rome “La Sapienza” back in 1987, where I worked with Spinelli and Mecacci. At that time my supervisors were the first at recording Visual Evoked Potentials Read
I am currently updating the website (new url, new directories) therefore the website is not at its best… :( It should be back to normal (or even better!!!) in a couple of days! thanks! Leo PS In the meanwhile, please enjoy some mossy-fibers (red) innervating the CA3 field (DAPI: blue) Leo
Publish your data with Nature Nature has started a website for sharing data (and get credit for it!!). It will open for the submission starting autumn 2013. and it will be launching in Spring 2014 Cell analysis software Cell profiler is the BEST cell imaging software I have tried out so far! it [...]
Karl Deisseroth has published yesterday one of the most revolutionary technical papers in the history of modern neuroscience:<<Structural and molecular interrogation of intact biological systems>> Nature 2013. Chung and colleagues describe a revolutionary tech for clarifying brain tissue (here is the protocol). Previous attempts have been made to render the tissue optically clear but all [...]
The brain research is living one of its most productive moments in history. When we plot the number of paper published each year (pub med search: BRAIN or NEURON) as percent change relative to each previous year we clearly see … Continue reading
Exciting news!!! Hubbian is currently working on an abstract use license agreement with the Society for Neuroscience! if everything turns out well we will be able to use Hubbian for #SfN13! A lot has changed since Hubbian was born (the … Continue reading
Finding neuronal activity traces Cognitive functions are the result of neuronal activity occurring at different levels of scale (from sub-cellular compartments to brain regions) and on different time scales (from microseconds to years). Therefore, this neuronal activity leaves a multidimensional trace spanning different levels of scale and time. The neuroscientist’s job is to develop tools/techniques/procedures […]
