2nd IMPRS NeuroCom Summer School
London, UK, 6 – 8 July 2011
We would like to solicit your help to announce the 2nd IMPRS NeuroCom Summer School among your colleagues, your students, or any interested researchers. For more details please see: http://imprs-neurocom.mpg.de/summerschool
The Summer School of the “International Max Planck Research School on Neuroscience of Communication: Function, Structure, and Plasticity” (IMPRS NeuroCom) is jointly run by the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, University College London and the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences, Leipzig.
We cordially invite national and international doctoral students, but also Master’s students and post-docs conducting research in the interdisciplinary field of cognitive neuroscience.
Participants are invited to present their current project in form of a poster.

Today, TinMan Systems, announced immediate availability of the TinMan AI Builder™ and Integrated Development Environment, enabling companies to rapidly design and deploy autonomous artificial intelligence in their host applications and systems.
TinMan AI Builder was developed as a result of the firm belief that increasingly human-like behavior is now possible through neural network based AI systems, but that those systems are very difficult and costly to develop and integrate.
Participating in an 8-week mindfulness meditation program appears to make measurable changes in brain regions associated with memory, sense of self, empathy and stress.
In a study that will appear in the January 30 issue of Psychiatry Research: Neuroimaging, a team led by Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) researchers report the results of their study, the first to document meditation-produced changes over time in the brain’s grey matter.
I assume that you use a Unix-like operative system, but this apply to any OS.
Let’s say about a problem: you are in your office, you are waiting for some kind of simulation to end. Everything seems to go well, so you go home, quite confident that the next morning you’ll have some results to analyze.
Unfortunately, it’s unlikely to happen. Ten seconds after your departure, the program ends for a low-frequency bug that you missed.
Luckily, we have a solution for the future. Instead of losing a long night (or even a weekend) of program executions, you can check your office workstation when you are at home, in your warm bed, or everywhere you like to be (with an internet connection, ça va sans dire).
You need to install (or ask the sysadmin to install):
Remember to ask the sysadmin:
Ok, now it’s very simple. You’ll only need to install a vncviewer, but you’ll probably already have one. Let’s say that your workstation username is goofy, the public IP is 188.8.131.52, and the free open port on the workstation is the 5900. Now we need another port, this time a local one (of your home computer), to create the http tunnel. I suggest the port 5901:
ssh -p 42 -L 5901:localhost:5900 firstname.lastname@example.org
You’ll have to insert your workstation password, and then you can explore with the shell your remote operative system. If you want to use it graphically, only execute the command:
Wait for 5-6 seconds, then open another shell without closing the current one, and type the following:
Et voilà! You have to move your mouse on the new black window, and then you’ll see the remote display to appear.
