Research - John Beggs - Science Diary Project
13 November

John Beggs on his Science Diary: Jim Metzner from Pulse of the Planet invited me and my lab members to keep an audio diary of our research activities over the summer of 2006. The idea behind these "science diaries" is to give the public a glimpse as to what goes on in the lives of scientists. Because these entries were being broadcast on National Public Radio, they were naturally delivered at a popular level, with a minimum of scientific jargon. My students and I tried to get across the main ideas of what we were doing, hopefully with some enthusiasm and without too much distortion. You'll have to judge if we succeeded! We had a lot of fun with this and the entries captured a good cross section of what we typically do: listening in on networks of neurons, making computational models, discussing the current literature, and harvesting human brain tissue for recording. We think it is important for the public to be informed about science, and we are grateful to Jim Metzner and the National Science Foundation for giving us the chance to do this.
