Materials and technologies for soft implantable neuroprostheses

  • Quote: In humans, both the spinal cord and its meningeal protective membranes can experience as much as 10–20% tensile strain and
displacement (relative to the spinal canal) during normal postural movements. This motion corresponds to displacements on the order of centimetres17. The deformations relative to the spinal cord in animal models, such as rodents or non-human primates, are likely to be even larger.

  • Very good article, clearly the author has hard-earned experience..
    • I appreciate his (journalistic, correctful, maybe overbearing) tone, but personally think it much better to be a bit playful with the silly arbitrariness, imperfect-but-honestly-attempted decisions, that humans are.
  • One thing that I particularly liked was the idea of 'learning area' - the more competent people that you have working on a project and learning along the way, the more area is exposed to learning, facilitating progress. Compare to the top-down approach, which allocates a few very good people at the beginning of a project to plan it out, but then does not allow the implementors to modify the plan, and furthermore suggests mediocre implementors will do - all which minimizes the 'learning area'.

  • The market for lemons, or "the bad driving out the good" - linked in the blog - brilliant!
  • Quote: "Adding detail makes a design more specific, but it only makes it specific for a client if the choices expressed address the most important needs of the client."

ref: notes-0 tags: software debian xpaint maxima math mathematica date: 07-02-2008 14:37 gmt revision:3 [2] [1] [0] [head]

oldies but goodies:

  • Maxima a computer algebra system, almost like a free version of Mathematica!
    • be sure to install maxima-emacs to get LaTeX prettyprinting.
  • [xpaint] Has a cool spring-mass-friction system where the length of the spring (the distance between cursor and paint brush) controls the width of the paint brush. see below!

Both are in Debian of course :)

  • looks like a good way to understand a large amount of code quickly. I've been waiting for a product like this for some time now!
    • I secretly hoped, given the name, that it would produce SVG files. It turns out otherwise: I'm just dyslexic :)
