你的脑袋是男还是女? Oct 8, 2014

Speaking about human brain, I watched with immense interest this programme last week. Highly recommended in case you could watch it online at the BBC2 site.

"Is your brain male or female?"
This one-hour series explores topical scientific issues. Dr Michael Mosley and Professor Alice Roberts investigate if male and female brains really are wired differently.

New research suggests that the connections in men and women's brains follow different patterns, patterns which may explain typical forms of male and female behaviour. But are these patterns innate, or are they shaped by the world around us?

Using a team of human lab rats and a troop of barbary monkeys, Michael and Alice test the science and challenge old stereotypes. They ask whether this new scientific research will benefit both men and women - or whether it could drive the sexes even further apart.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b04knbny/horizon-20142015-7-is-your-brain-male-or-female

我看完这个节目以后,对于男女思维及行為多了很多信息。

Enjoy if you can !

Symbolic Moment Oct 10, 2014

Heard this in the news the other day, but didn't pay too much attention ...

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2785766/China-overtakes-U-S-world-s-largest-economy-IMF-says-economy-worth-11-trillion-America-falls-second-place-time-1872.html



China 'overtakes U.S. as the the world's largest economy': IMF says economy is now worth £11 trillion as America falls into second place for the first time since 1872


• Figures show the Chinese economy is worth £11trillion, the US £10.8trillion
• The IMF estimates China's economy will be worth £16.7trillion in 2019
• The US has been the global leader since it overtook Britain in 1872




Yet there’s this caveat …



The numbers are based on ‘purchasing power parity’ (PPP) which makes adjustments for the fact that goods are cheaper in countries such as China relative to the US.
Without these adjustments for living costs, the Chinese economy is still smaller than that of the US, at £6.4trillion.
But experts have described the toppling of America after nearly 150 years by China – even on the PPP measure – as a ‘symbolic’ moment for the global economy.

當學生時,我也經常拜讀John O'Keefe教授的大作,特別是“The hippocampal and parietal foundations of spatial cognition“、 “The hippocampus as a cognitive map”及他對海馬回的研究都很值得一讀。今日獲此殊榮,真是實至名歸。

More about "brain" Oct 12, 2014

刚看到更多关于人脑的发现:

brain and brains

From Wall Street Journal

New Technique Offers Faster, More Accurate Way to Count Brain Cells
Method Eases Task Vital to Explaining How Humans Differ From Other Animals

Counting brain cells helps scientists explain how humans differ from other animals, but until recently, enumerating billions of cells by species was too onerous a task to tackle. That changed with the work of a Brazilian researcher who pioneered a technique that is both fast and accurate.

“We’re looking at the most basic properties of brain tissue,” said Suzana Herculano-Houzel, who developed the approach. “What is it made of, what are the rules of putting a brain together and how does the human brain compare to other brains?”

John O'Keefe是研究海馬回跟空間認知的翹楚,但卓越傑出的神經學家不在少數,各個認知科學和神經領域都有卓越的科學家,很難說哪一位大師的成就比哪一位大師高。我想,諾貝爾獎是一個象徵性的獎項,它指出了目前醫學研究的重要潮流,但不代表其他未得獎的神經學大師的研究成果就比較遜色。

IMO, it might be oversimplified to apply statistics in this case. I actually think about the Black Swan Theory.

香港算是国外?那您说的“国”是哪一国?


看到了懒得改,想看看谁眼睛最锐利,脑子最清晰,先找到问题所在。

以前替公司搞国际会议前的线上论坛/内部交流,自己负责英文部份,其他同事则负责不同的世界语文如西班牙语和法语等。我们私下设计了一些方法来量度线上论坛的同事的参与感。这个 ’懒得改‘ 就是其中一种,非常有效。谁最先发现这些故意遗漏出来的问题,表示他们是最专心、最积极参与讨论的一群,年终有奖。也成为业绩评核的一部分,且变成提拔新人的一个方法。

与苹果 Steve Jobs 用 wow 反应来挑选有眼光的科技设计技术人员的方法差不多。两者的差别只是苹果的比较积极,我们的较侧重 trouble shooting。

它们的共通点是有点 ‘卖关子’ 或 ’装蒜‘ 的成份吧。

不好意思,一时 ’职业病‘ 复发 :)

却要恭喜你 - 眼睛很锐利、脑子蛮清晰!


惶恐,惶恐!

Fargoer,

There are indeed a lot of 四合院 outside of China. Here is a good example:

Quadrangle Hall at University of Iowa is a bigger student residence building, but Buckingham Palace is bigger than bigger.

In fact, a lot of universities in the US, UK and Canada have buildings in a quadrangle layout, such as Stanford Main Quad:

Anyway, congratulations to you for passing the test! Apparently, not everybody is as smart as you are!

我还没有看这个节目,仅是根据自己的认识谈一谈。我觉得男女大脑中的神经连接模式从根本上来说是天生的,是根植于男女的生物本性的。但是,如果它们可以解释男女的行为方式的话,那么我觉得还可以得出一个结论:这种连接模式会受外部社会环境的影响。

我也觉得很有启发性。没有想过黑天鹅理论,当时我只想到中国自古已有的 “看相” -面相学。究竟成功的科学家可不可以从外貌辨别出来?

http://zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/面相學

曾经有外国朋友看到路上相士招徕,非常感兴趣,问我,究竟面相如何得出结论、如何确保准确性等问题。记得当时我说,可能是统计学方面的累积结论,让他容易明白,我也容易解释。所以其中统计当然有错误,但会是在预料之中。例如: 相士会对你说,人定胜天、积点阴德 (服务他人)会改变命运、相由心生等鼓励人其实也有一些能力改变命运及面相的能力。

于是,朋友好奇地去看相。

当时心想,可能一定不准确,因为看相学是为中国人的面相而设,没有为外国人做的统计吧。 LOL

现在,经 Q 的启发,觉得外国人发明的 “黑天鹅理论” 可能比较适合外国人!
