Wine-tasting journal club

February 11, 2011

Today we had a joint lab meeting with Glen Turner’s lab and read Konrad Kording’s recent paper (http://www.nature.com/neuro/journal/v14/n2/full/nn.2731.html). The paper describe how advances in the feasible number of recording electrodes is having an impact on neuroscience. The journal club was followed by a wine-tasting. We tasted 8 different wines (mostly syrah and shiraz). We tasted them all blind so as not to bias our perceptions!  The journal club was also attended by a large number of Marks building folks who got wind of either the tasting or the paper- we aren’t sure which!
