UCLA psychologists have used brain-imaging techniques to study what happens to the human brain when it slips into unconsciousness. Their research, published Oct. 17 in the online journal PLOS Computational Biology, is an initial step toward developing a scientific definition of consciousness.
The psychologists analyzed the “network properties” of the subjects’ brains using a branch of mathematics known as graph theory, which is often used to study air-traffic patterns, information on the Internet and social groups, among other topics.
“It turns out that when we lose consciousness, the communication among areas of the brain becomes extremely inefficient, as if suddenly each area of the brain became very distant from every other, making it difficult for information to travel from one place to another,” Monti said.
The finding shows that consciousness does not “live” in a particular place in our brain but rather “arises from the mode in which billions of neurons communicate with one another,” he said.

Robin Good: Quicko is a new search engine which displays search results with individual, text-based information boxes a-la-Pinterest, and then allows to navigate them by providing a navigation top bar, which provides easy access to all results while maintaining the browsing task in context with the just-completed search action.
The authors behind Quicko have written: "We were fed up, the way search engines currently presents search results. it is so confusing to find what you are looking for and then you have to open a lot of windows which you think are closer to what you are looking for. So we came up with this idea that there should be only one single page from where you can navigate between all or selected results."
Free to use.
P.S.: Quicko will not open PDFs or Flash animations and other content
which is set not to be opened in an iframe, but the team is currently working on these issues.
