Other projects in our lab include social neuroscience (how to optimize community intervention programs in high-risk neighborhoods) and the use of real-time feedback neuroimaging to break drug addiction (in collaboration with Stephen LaConte at Virginia Tech).
I recently spent an evening speaking at the Rubin Museum in NYC with punk rock legend, writer, and spoken word artist Henry Rollins. We discussed the origin, meaning, neuroscience, and bizarreness of dreams.
I recently posted about my scanning of a 3,000 year old mummy, Neskhons. Now, by analyzing the data in several different ranges of electron density, I've found something unexpected: inside the mummy's torso are 4 small funerary amulets.
