  • Sally Ride ScienceSally Ride Science officially joins TDLC as a corporate partner
    America's first woman in space, Sally Ride, has founded a science education company called Sally Ride Science, to engage and inspire students in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields. The company "brings science to life through pioneering professional development, instructional solutions, and real-science investigations for students in 4th-8th grades" Bill Jenkins has moved from his position at Scientific Learning, one of TDLC's corporate partners, to a position at Sally Ride Science, and is excited about the future opportunities a partnership with TDLC can create.

    Michael TarrMicro-valences: perceiving affective valence in everyday objects
    Sophie Lebrecht, Moshe Bar, Lisa Feldman Barrett, and Michael J. Tarr (2013)

    New research from Carnegie Mellon University's Center for the Neural Basis of Cognition (CNBC) shows that the brain's visual perception system automatically and unconsciously guides decision-making through something called valence perception. Valence — defined as “the positive or negative information automatically perceived in the majority of visual information” — is a process that allows our brains to quickly make choices between similar objects. The researchers conclude that “everyday objects carry subtle affective valences – ‘micro-valences’ – which are intrinsic to their perceptual representation.” More ...

  • CBAMUC San Diego Creates Center for Brain Activity Mapping (CBAM)
    Ralph Greenspan (associate director of the Kavli Institute for Brain and Mind at UC San Diego) authored the proposal for CBAM with Nick Spitzer (Kavli Director) and TDLC's Terry Sejnowski. CBAM will focus on "developing new technologies necessary for global brain-mapping at the resolution level of single cells and the timescale of a millisecond, participate in brain mapping experiments, and develop the necessary support mechanisms for handling and analyzing the enormous datasets that such efforts will produce."
