More evidence that changing demographics isn't the same as changing culture. Both are necessary.

Combing copyedits is a good excuse to re-read faves like @RobGMacfarlane's Landmarks: "bull-pated -- applied to a tuft of grass driven by the wind into a quiff, i.e., standing up like the tuft on a bull's forehead. Northamptonshire." My quiff in the winds of stylistic preference:

This study was a computational investigation based on prior human behavioral studies. It would be exciting to take our predictions into the classroom in hands-on education research, such as that led by the PER group at CU Boulder https://t.co/nPPyKCGmSc

Further, we identify how optimal emphasis patterns vary with the topology of the true network structure to be learned, as well as the baseline accuracy of the human learner.

We demonstrate that targeted emphasis and de-emphasis can substantially enhance a human learner's grasp of network structure.

Here we present a framework for optimizing the accuracy of human network learning by intentionally emphasizing/deemphasizing certain network features.

If humans are imperfect learners, how can we optimize the structure of information to enhance the accuracy of a human's perception & representation of that information? Billy Qian pursues this question in his new preprint just up on arXiv: https://t.co/uoUCoDaIMP

Thinking about brains, entropy production, and energy consumption. Amazed by this paper from @MitoPsychoBio assessing mitochondrial connectivity and its relation to behavior, gene expression, and the structural connectome. https://t.co/ye2FeZSi2P

For several years, @ Fabiopas82 & I have been working with colleagues to investigate network control theory as a possible process model for network level phenomena in the human brain. The theory draws upon a notion of control energy. What is the biological basis of that energy?
