Check out my podcast with Richard Brown

Dear Hammer Heads,

Things have been quiet here at Brain Hammer, but things have been far from quiet elsewhere. In particular, please do check out the new thingamajig I'm working on with Richard Brown: SpaceTimeMind (http://www.spacetimemind.com). Central to SpaceTimeMind is a podcast that Richard and I are putting out on a biweekly basis. Episode 3 was just published today. There's a blog there as well, and I aim to be moving more of my blogging over there.

Cheers,

Pete

Weatherson's Exactly Right about Blog Resucitation

Brian Weatherson at Thoughts Arguments and Rants
There’s a common way that a blog dies. For whatever reason, the author(s) can’t find time to make a post for a little while. Then there’s a feeling that given the time since the last post, any posting has to be a big deal. After all, if it was a little post, it could have been done earlier. But there’s never any time for that post, or never anything to say that’s a big deal, and possible to say in a blog post. So nothing gets written. The end. 
That’s a sad way to go, and there’s an easy solution. Just don’t give in to the feeling that the first post after a hiatus must be substantial.

Brains: Study of Color Discrimination and Memory

Brains: Study of Color Discrimination and Memory: Study of Color Discrimination and Memory

We are conducting a study of color discrimination and short-term color memory. I would be grateful if you would participate in the study. You'll need to use the left and right arrow keys to adjust the color of a square to fit the color of a second image. It will only take about 5-10 minutes. Click on the link below to begin.
