The brain’s neural thermostat The discovery of a neural firing-rate set point opens the door to eventual treatment for devastating disorders By Leah BurrowsOct. 16, 2013 As we learn and develop, our neurons change. Teens, Video Games and Civics Video games provide a diverse set of experiences and related activities and are part of the lives of almost all teens in America. To date, most video game research has focused on how games impact academic and social outcomes (particularly aggression). There has also been some exploration of the relationship between games and civic outcomes, but as of yet there has been no large-scale quantitative research. This survey provides the first nationally representative study of teen video game play and of teen video gaming and civic engagement.

NNRG Projects - NEAT: Evolving Increasingly Complex Neural Network Topologies Many neuroevolution methods evolve fixed-topology networks. Some methods evolve topologies in addition to weights, but these usually have a bound on the complexity of networks that can be evolved and begin evolution with random topologies. This project is based on a neuroevolution method called NeuroEvolution of Augmenting Topologies (NEAT) that can evolve networks of unbounded complexity from a minimal starting point. The initial stage of research aims to demonstrate that topology can be used to increase the efficiency of search if it minimizes the dimensionality of the weight space. We performed several pole balancing experiments that demonstrate that evolving topology using NEAT indeed provides an advantage. Also show archived content

14 Reasons Why Pokemon GO Is The Future Of Learning – ideaFM Students are on their phones ALL the time. Students are not on their textbook all the time. Think about that. And I’m not saying we should only do what students want to do. Which Businesses Will be Pioneers in Location-Based Mobile Advertising? If a new forecast from market research company BIA/Kelsey is correct, national brands, franchises and multi-location businesses will be trailblazers in the emerging field of location-based mobile advertising. BIA/Kelsey predicts spending by national brands will make up 43 percent — or $68 billion — of location-based advertising by 2019. Those brands will include restaurant chains and retail stores.

Constructing fictional stories: A study of story narratives by children with autistic spectrum disorder Institute of Education, University of London, United Kingdom Received 9 March 2014, Revised 7 June 2014, Accepted 12 June 2014, Available online 28 June 2014 Choose an option to locate/access this article: The Secret to Not Caring What People Think Whether it is becoming plugged into our identity, quitting alcohol or even becoming more confident, our worry of what people think can really affect us. From the jobs we choose, to the people we date and the risks we take, we often limit our actions through fear of criticism or judgment from others. This is a serious issue, and a problem many people experience, therefore I’ve taken my personal experience and the advice of others to reveal the secrets to not caring what people think. Why we Care what people Think First of all, I want to say that sometimes caring what people think is not a bad idea; the part of our mind that produces this fear is often in place to protect us. For example, if we didn’t care what anybody thought then we might go out and kill somebody or run through shopping centers completely naked.

While intensely criticized, the journal impact factor (JIF) has taken a role as the new currency for scientists. Successful goal-directed behavior in academia thus requires knowledge about the JIF.
