Before this month, the most helpful data computational models of traffic flow could produce, consisted of a two dimensional view of the roads with little green and red dots indicating vehicles in motion under different conditions. Very computational, and very accurate, but this sort of output is not very easy for the layperson to understand.
A layperson-designed article from the American Society for Neuroscience, explaining the basics of how the sense of taste functions, from a chemical and neural point of view.
A layperson-designed article from the American Society for Neuroscience, explaining the basics of how the sense of smell functions, from a chemical and neural point of view.
A wired article about Dr Ed Boyden and his lab, at the cutting edge of applied neuroscience. A fairly lengthy and in depth article on the process of reverse engineering and enhancing the brain, and showcasing the state of development of the science as of early 2009.
We have heard before about VR based schools, VR based colleges and informal institutions. Now, the first formal scientific organization, the Meta Institute for Computational Astrophysics or MICA, has formed, entirely within the bounds of virtual environments.
In early January 2008, a Rice University study published in the Journal of Neuroscience found that socioemotional meanings, including sexual ones, are conveyed in human sweat. This raises the question for immersive spaces, if such dynamic scents need to be synthetically reproduced to provide a firmer social environment in tele-mediation.
Even the most vigorous, modern crash test simulation, with all known variables accounted for, can be wrong. Sometimes these differences are unavoidable with the computational power limitations of the simulation computers, sometimes its another, unforeseen cause.
Zebrafish are handy little critters, as far as neuroscience goes. These tiny, mostly transparent little fish have brains that whilst greatly simplified, have a structure remarkably similar in basic form, to our own. Add in that aforementioned near-transparency, and it becomes possible under the correct lighting conditions, to literally see right into their brains, to the point where you can practically watch as a thought takes place.
Rendering of lighting in outdoor scenes is a paramount concern. To truly be realistic, the light levels constantly vary, and the sun (or suns) are not usually even the primary lightsource! All that adds up to is a computational disaster, unless some way is found to render lightsoure data quickly, and easilly....
Computer scientists from UC San Diego have developed a way to generate images like smoke-filled bars, foggy alleys and smog-choked cityscapes without the computational drag and slow speed of previous computer graphics methods.
