800 grams (28.2 ounces) sounds like a lot of fruits and vegetables in a day, but it is one of the best nutritional strategies to reduce the risk of coronary heart disease (24%), stroke (33%), cardiovascular disease (28%), cancer (14%) and all-cause mortality (31%).

Analyzing Payment Based Question and Answering Service

What happens when Siri and Wolfram Alpha fail us? We are still in need of humans to interpret and answer questions. This paper explores how expert knowledge and crowdsourcing overlap with the monetary and social benefits of popular Q&A systems.

Simple Algorithmic Principles of Discovery, Subjective Beauty, Selective Attention, Curiosity & Creativity

A framework by which we can understand beauty, why we desire it, and how to maximize finding it through the process of discovery. The theory suggests that our actions search for novelty that is compressible.

Optogenetic Stimulation of Frontal D1 Neurons Compensates for Impaired Temporal Control of Action in Dopamine-Depleted Mice

A look at how D1 dopamine receptors might play a role in temporal processing (based on an action performed). Interestingly, a 2 Hz (delta band) stimulation improves performance.

Double dissociation of single-interval and rhythmic temporal prediction in cerebellar degeneration and Parkinson’s disease

This paper is one among many that contrast the presumes (and tested) roles of the basal ganglia and cerebellum in performing actions that are either rhythmic or based on single intervals.
