Alzheimer's PI Profile

title RLE Investigator Profile: Collin M. Stultz
description A video profile accompanying recent news from MIT on Alzheimer's research. From the press release (not this video): "'We generated lots and lots of structures for both normal tau and a mutant form' associated with an increased risk for Alzheimer's,' Stultz said. By comparing the two sets, the researchers found one structure that was more common in the mutant form -- and therefore likely to 'play a role in the pathologic process.'" A potential drug target. Read the details in his PLoS Computational Biology article.

Music Cognition from Rock Stars

title Seed Salon: David Byrne and Daniel Levitin
description "The singer/songwriter/artist/author enters the Seed Salon to discuss music with the producer/neuroscientist." Language, glossolia, music cognition, studying music, mirror neurons, memory, and more. They consider musical craft and the ability to evoke emotional responses, and consider authenticity for the listener. Byrne says, "You can know what's in a sunset and still be just as awed by it." This interview is a year old but still relevant (except maybe some of what's attributed to the mirror neurons). Levitin has more recently published a book on music archetypes: The World in Six Songs.
