Cartographies des connaissances scientifiques Comment cartographier les sciences? De la "Métaphysique" d'Aristote à la classification de Dewey, le classement des savoirs est un enjeu philosophique majeur. Raphaël Velt retrace les cartes historiques et s'intéresse à leurs utilisations. Article publié sur OWNISciences sous le titre, Les connaissances scientifiques à la carte Les techniques cartographiques peuvent s’appliquer à toutes les disciplines scientifiques, notamment en biologie où elles servent entre autres à décrire les réseaux trophiques (plus connus sous le nom réducteur de « chaînes alimentaires ») ainsi que les réseaux complexes d’interactions entre molécules. Les techniques cartographiques peuvent en effet décrire l’état des connaissances scientifiques ainsi que la dynamique de la recherche. Une brève histoire de l’organisation des connaissances Système figuré des connoissances humaines Cette classification vieille de deux siècles et demi semble aujourd’hui quelque peu désuète.

Female Orgasm Captured In Brain Scan Animation Scientists have created the world's first video animation of the female orgasm, using a series of brain scan images. To capture the brain activity, researchers monitored a woman's brain as she lay in a functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) scanner and stimulated herself. Psychologists at Rutgers University in New Jersey, where the study was conducted, hope the research will help them to understand the reasons why some men and women cannot reach sexual climax. Researcher, Professor Barry Komisaruk, who presented the findings at the Society for Neuroscience annual meeting in Washington DC on Monday, told the Guardian: "The general aim of this research is to understand how the orgasm builds up from genital stimulation and what parts of the brain become recruited and finally build up into an orgasm." The animation is made up of a sequence of brain scans of Nan Wise, a 54-year-old PhD student and sex therapist in Komisaruk's lab. "We're using orgasm as a way of producing pleasure.

Étienne-Jules Marey Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Étienne-Jules Marey Portrait de Marey par Nadar, vers 1880. Étienne-Jules Marey, né à Beaune le 5 mars 1830 et mort à Paris le 15 mai 1904, est un médecin et physiologiste français. Biographie[modifier | modifier le code] Travaux[modifier | modifier le code] « E. Chronophotographie[modifier | modifier le code] Pélican en vol, photographié par Marey vers 1882 au moyen du fusil photographique, qui permet de décomposer le mouvement sur une seule image. Marey met au point, en 1882, le fusil photographique qui lui permet de photographier « sur nature » un sujet en mouvement sur douze poses. La même année, il invente la chronophotographie sur plaque fixe (au gélatinobromure) : à l'aide d'un seul objectif — contrairement à la méthode de Muybridge qui utilise plusieurs objectifs — et avec des sujets clairs sur fond noir, une plaque photographique est exposée plusieurs fois par un obturateur rotatif.

Kunstformen der Natur Plates from Ernst Haeckel's Kunstformen der Natur (Artforms of nature) (1904) Ordered by plate number. 2. Thalamphora 8. Discomedusae 37. 100. What topics science lovers link to the most Hilary Mason, chief scientist at bitly, examined links to 600 science pages and the pages that those people visited next: The results revealed which subjects were strongly and weakly associated. Chemistry was linked to almost no other science. Biology was linked to almost all of them. Health was tied more to business than to food. But why did fashion connect strongly to physics? The interactive lets you poke around the data, looking at connections sorted from weakest (fewer links) to strongest (more links), and nodes are organized such that topics with more links between each other are closer together. Natural next step: let me click on the nodes. [Scientific American via @hmason]

Canvi & Temps: An Exploration of Science Over Time Bestiario, the group behind 6pli and a number of other network projects, released their most recent project - Canvi & Temps - that explores the complexity of science since the early 1920s. The first part, Temps, is two linked charts stacked on top of each other. On top are individual articles and on bottom are tags that provide context to those articles. You'll probably be tempted to read the visualization as a stacked area chart, but that wouldn't quite work. Bar height doesn't really mean anything other than there were more articles or tags in a year when the bars are small. Instead, color indicates count. It reminds me a lot of Bestiario's earlier Atlas of Electromagnetic Space. Then there's Canvi, which is a network view of tags and links: I'm not completely sure what I'm looking at with Canvi. The uniqueness of Canvi lays in the fact that it explores new node positioning techniques as well as their spatial relations. Yeah, I'm still not sure, but it's nice to look at. [Thanks, Jose]

New project: Canvi & temps Canvi & temps are two network browsing spaces built from a compilation of articles, pages, persons and links, all related with complexity in science. The research was carried out by Pau Alsina, Josep Perelló, Michele Catanzaro, Pere Monràs, Carles Tardío, Oriol Vallès, Irma Vilà and Santiago Ortiz. The project is in display at Arts Santa Mónica, in the context of a Cultures of Change exhibit. This historical (it includes citations since 1927) and transversal (it contains more than 30 categories of fields of knowledge) research offers and ample vision of the collection of aproaches, strategies and tactics, reseach methods and interests known as complexity science. Temps The interest in representing changes associated with complexity science through time (from 1927, which is the chronological reference in the field, up to date) rose from internal dialogue within our research group.
