brainSCANr

Bradley Voytek brainSCANr


So for those of you who are following this and who don't yet know, my wife Jessica and I started a website called brainSCANr.

From the home page:

The Brain Systems, Connections, Associations, and Network Relationships (a phrase with more words than strictly necessary in order to bootstrap a good acronym) assumes that somewhere in all the chaos and noise of the more than 20 million papers on PubMed, there must be some order and rationality.

While this is a very serious academic project that we started to combine our skills and interest, we thought we'd have a bit of fun with it.

We started a blog for the site that will keep people updated with new additions and features as we add them. I'll be blogging about the major changes here, too.

In the mean time, we did a few fun analyses with our framework. Turns out Christmas, Hanukkah, solstice, and Santa appear in the scientific literature!

So read "A brainSCANr holiday", add the blog to your RSS feed, and/or follow me on Twitter to keep up to date about it!
