Blogging on the Brain: April 2-8, 2006

Some highlights from the week in brain blogging:

Mind Hacks covers a particularly tragic story: the man who took 40,000 ecstasy pills in nine years. Fascinating discussion with informed comments from several readers.

Neuron Simulators Galore at Neuronerd (to which I would add PDP++ and Neural Viewer)

The Sad Cingulate at Neurocritic has a wonderful breakdown of the details surrounding deep brain stimulation therapy for depression, one of the week's popular press news items

Neurodudes discusses a new technique that might be used to cure blindness, using light-activated ion channels

Singing Cavemen and Amusia: Myomancy reviews some of the multimodal deficits found in children with learning disorders

Thanks to Positive Technology Journal for pointing out a new special issue of Cortex on Synaesthesia

And finally, a very interesting post on Blind Chess and Working Memory over at Zero Brane

Have a nice weekend!
