A polymath rambling about virtually anything

PNAS: Neuroscience

Posted by Scott Holstad on December 17, 2021

I realize that I’m likely the only person looking at this page who will find this topic interesting because it seems to matter what the platform, as soon as I dive into either 1) neuroscience or 2) quantum gravity, etc., any conversation dies and people try to creep away unnoticed. And I get it, truly I do. It’s just not for everyone. It’s dry or hard or boring or Why?, etc. Well, yeah, for many people. But it’s also the stuff of life, so to say. Some things are dry and hard but I rarely let that stop me because the knowledge gained will be worth it. There! My tiny pep talk for the day!

So the National Academy of Sciences puts out generally high quality research on a regular basis. I got this last night, and on into the morning with tons of other email messages and some were really interesting looking, including this one from PNAS (Proceedings of the NAS). I couldn’t paste the email here so I took a screenshot and if anyone is interested, you can either look up the research yourself or ask me and I’ll locate it for you. The first one looks especially intriguing to me: “Cell-type–specific neuromodulation guides synaptic credit assignment in a spiking neural network” (Liu, et al…). In fact, for any interested parties (besides me), here’s the link to the original research.

I actually have a ton of other topics I’d like to post or write about, but my time is precious and limited, so I don’t know if or when I will get to any. Remember, it’s okay to Geek Out!

    I think this is amazing! With as little actual understanding that exists for brain mapping — not to mention medical conditions like yours and my husband’s, it’s always great to see steps forward in this area of neuroscience.
