Random Robot Roundup

Posted 26 Oct 2012 at 18:01 UTC by steve Share This

Joe let us know about his new blog, Bot Scene, which focuses on humanoid robots. Olivier Garcia sent a link to his YouTube channel, where he documents his work on SLAM, sonar imaging, 3D reconstruction, and other navigational techniques. Speaking of YouTube, have you seen the latest Boston Dynamic video of the LS3 Legged Squad Support robot? Another cool visual treat is this poster of famous robots. We also have a few cogsci stories in the queue this week: a new paper, titled Sequencing the Connectome, proposes a method by which single neuron resolution connectivity maps of the brain might be generated with existing high-throughput DNA sequencing machines. Another interesting paper is Discovering Relations Between Mind, Brain, and Mental Disorders Using Topic Mapping. What they've done is datamine existing neuroimaging studies to map mental functions to brain activity. The result includes lots of cool graphics. Finally, new MIT research shows Broca's area has two distinct sub-units, one specifically for language processing while the other acts as a central processing unit for general cognition.
