Scientists claim brain memory code cracked

Scientists claim brain memory code cracked | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it
Despite a century of research, memory encoding in the brain has remained mysterious. Neuronal synaptic connection strengths are involved, but synaptic components are short-lived while memories last lifetimes.

reaction-diffusion - A cross-platform implementation of various reaction-diffusion systems. - Google Project Hosting | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it

Ready is a program for exploring continuous cellular automata, including reaction-diffusion systems. OpenCL is used as the computation engine, to take advantage of the many-core architectures on graphics cards and modern CPUs. OpenCL also allows rules to be written in a text format and compiled on the fly. Ready supports a compact XML-based file format so that images and rules can be shared easily.

Is the Universe a Computer? New Evidence Emerges. | Nova Spivack - Minding the Planet | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it
In the article, Gates asks, “How could we discover whether we live inside a Matrix? One answer might be ‘Try to detect the presence of codes in the laws that describe physics.’” And this is precisely what he has done. Specifically, within the equations of supersymmetry he has found, quite unexpectedly, what are called “doubly-even self-dual linear binary error-correcting block codes.”
