I’ll be making use of curated lists to better organize my articles. There are three lists I’ve created at the moment …

‘The Technical Paper Reboot’ — Short adaptations of some of our technical papers, in particular highlighting the limits and boundaries of neuroscience.

‘Articles from Forbes’ — Articles originally published in Forbes that I have written as a regular contributor.

‘Medium Originals’ — Pretty self explanatory. But still (mostly) focused on neuroscience, the brain, machine learning, and related topics.

Feel free to drop me a line with any feedback or thoughts.

Constructing generalizable models in neuroscience is challenging because neural systems are typically complex in the sense that they are dynamic — constantly changing — and composed of numerous interacting components that collectively participate to produce emergent behaviors: system properties that are not shared by the building block constituent elements that…

This (somewhat) technical article is based on the introduction of a recent peer-reviewed published paper from our group, and summarizes some of the work done over the years in the field in an attempt to identify and map the inferred connectivity of biological neuronal networks. The ability to do so…

The ‘Thinkers and Innovators’ series explores the science and philosophy of the brain and mind with some of the world’s foremost forward thinking experts. It also explores technologies used for studying and interfacing with the brain, as well as technologies motivated by the brain, such as machine learning and artificial…

There exists a technology that lets scientists selectively target and color code cells. Quantum dots are tiny nanometer-sized particles that display unique physical properties that allow them to fluoresce across a rainbow of bright colors. They can also be molecularly functionalized, meaning that you can chemically attach other molecules and…
