Setting up a cluster for the analysis of neural array data

As I’ve mentioned before, we’ve been recording from a Utah array for more than a year now. We use a custom Plexon MAP system that allows for the recording of wideband data at 10 kHz over 96 channels. This custom configuration was requested so that we can get spike-free LFPs by preprocessing wideband data with … More Setting up a cluster for the analysis of neural array data

A recent xkcd comic illustrated a really neat idea: enhancing binocular vision artificially to view distant objects in “true” 3d. Binocular disparity, the mismatch between the position of objects between the two eyes, is a particularly strong 3d cue. It’s  really only well useful for objects which are physically close to the observer. You can … More xkcd’s cloud viewer, binocular vision and telestereoscopes
