Brain scan reveals out-of-body illusion The feeling of being inside one's own body is not as self-evident as one might think. In a new study from Sweden's Karolinska Institutet, neuroscientists created an out-of-body illusion in participants placed inside a brain scanner. They then used the illusion to perceptually 'teleport' the participants to different locations in a room and show that the perceived location of the bodily self can be decoded from activity patterns in specific brain regions. The sense of owning one's body and being located somewhere in space is so fundamental that we usually take it for granted. To the brain, however, this is an enormously complex task that requires continuous integration of information from our different senses in order to maintain an accurate sense of where the body is located with respect to the external world.
Hallstatt (China) Hallstatt (Chinese: 五矿·哈施塔特) is a housing development in Luoyang, Boluo County, China. Its urban core is modelled after the small town of Hallstatt in Austria. The housing project was built by the China Minmetals mining company. The flats in the area are mostly still in construction and are for sale. Computer can read letters directly from the brain - Radboud University By analysing MRI images of the brain with an elegant mathematical model, it is possible to reconstruct thoughts more accurately than ever before. In this way, researchers from Radboud University Nijmegen have succeeded in determining which letter a test subject was looking at. The journal Neuroimage has accepted the article, which will be published soon. A preliminary version of the article can be read online.
Martin Grandjean » Digital humanities, Data visualization, Network analysis » Connected World: Untangling the Air Traffic Network People travel not just more frequently, but increasingly far and quickly. Mapping the connections between all the airports worldwide is a fascinating network visualization exercise.A network, in its very essence, is already a map. And the global transportation maps that represent the flight connections rarely make this network intelligible: on a world map, Europe is often a very dense area where it’s almost impossible to distinguish the dots/airports. Ultimately, these maps (sometimes very beautiful objects), do not represent the data itself, but some idea of the complexity and quantity.

Mapping Human Activity Activity tracking application Human has released a global interactive map showing one day of walking, running, cycling and transport undertaken by Human users in March of this year. One Day on Human provides an interesting visualization of where the Human app is being used around the world. A lot of people actually seem to be using the app not only as a fitness tracking app but to record their general movements. For example, people have been using the app to track themselves on ferry journeys around New York and on London's M25 orbital motorway. The One Day on Human Map only appears to show everywhere Human users have been with the app.
