📚🌬️ Book Dash is fully underway! We're so excited to work on contributions and collaborations within our community this week! Stay tuned for progress updates 🥳🥳🥳

Still time to catch Stuart Duffield and Spencer Loggia present their work on spatial chromatic fMRI responses in alert macaque, a tool to relate monkey and human vision . It’s their first conference poster and they’ve made me very proud.

Shriya Awasthi did an amazing job presenting our work with ⁦@da5nsy⁩ and ⁦@BrunoAverbeck⁩ testing cognitive penetrance of color and showing interesting timing differences in learning about colors and shapes in monkeys.

Very proud of Hannah Selwyn and Audrey Chang, two post-bacs who presented their heroic work with @da5nsy and Shriya Awasthi to uncover the color categories in macaque monkeys

I can now rent electric cargo bikes around the corner from me. Very nice, if I need to transport something.😇 The price is also okay. If this continues, Hannover will soon become Dutch.🥳

Thinking of learning a new keyboard layout but not sure if I should go with Dvorak or Colemak. What would you recommend?

Social Sunday was quiet. I was to tired to enjoy a code party so I just folded. Origami, that is. Good thing, too. I needed to bring up some memory, and while I was at it, coming in from a diffferent mental angle, I found the better way to fold the model that I knew was there. One of those brilliant conversations with the paper.
