How Your Brain Experiences the Passage of Time

How Your Brain Experiences the Passage of Time | Gabriel Catalano human being | #INperfeccion® a way to find new insight & perspectives | Scoop.it

What's the Latest Development?

Scientists have located a specific set of neurons that indicate how time passes, confirming that the brain plays an essential role in how we experience the passage of time. By recording brain activity across 100 neurons in the lateral intraparietal cortex of two rhesus macaques, University of Minnesota researchers were able to examine how brain biology corresponds to an objective measurement of time. Then, by examining the rate of decay of the neural signals, scientists could estimate how much time had objectively past with simple reference to the brain's biology.

 

What's the Big Idea?

Results of the study suggest that scientists may one day be able to manipulate how we experience time by affecting the neural connections which indicate its passage in our brains. "As well as indicating that brain circuits may have their own ability to keep time, the results also hint at how our perception of time can be altered during high emotional states. ... 'And in our model, a change in the activity decay rate is all you need to have a different sense of 'what time' it is,' says lead researcher Geoffrey Ghose. It might be possible to tweak an individual's sense of timing by altering these signals, he says.

Stunning Demo Reels by the VFX Masterminds of Tomorrow

The Gnomon School of Visual Effects trains some of the coolest VFX and design creators in movies and other media — and they just released 10 new demo reels from their recent graduates. Including the stunning one above from Daniele Volpe, in which a pair of mechs stalk the countryside, a girl causes huge turbulence with her psychic powers — and a bank building lifts off into space. Awesome.

New Algorithm Captures What Pleases the Human Ear—and May Replace Human Instrument Tuners

New Algorithm Captures What Pleases the Human Ear—and May Replace Human Instrument Tuners | Gabriel Catalano human being | #INperfeccion® a way to find new insight & perspectives | Scoop.it

As computer hardware and software becomes ever more powerful, they find ways to match and then exceed many human abilities. One point of superiority that humans have stubbornly refused to yield is tuning musical instruments. Pythagoras identified the precise, mathematical relationships between musical tones over 2,000 years ago, and modern machines can beat out any human when it comes to precise math. So why aren’t computers better than people? The professional tuner does have one incontrovertible advantage: a trained human ear.
