Brain Hardwired to Respond to Others’ Itching

Itching is a highly contagious behavior. When we see someone scratch, we're likely to scratch, too. Now researchers at the Washington University Center for the Study of Itch have shown that, at least in mice, contagious itching is hardwired in the brain.

UNC Charlotte’s Analytics Frontiers Conference to Feature Nate Silver

The Analytics Frontiers Conference at UNC Charlotte has emerged as the region’s leading forum on data science; this event is an outgrowth of the University’s Data Science Initiative that positions UNC Charlotte at the center of the data analytics revolution. This year’s Analytics Frontiers Conference expands to three days, Wednesday through Friday, March 29-31, at the Ritz-Carlton in uptown Charlotte. Participants will have access to speakers and panel discussions devoted to leveraging new analytical techniques, tools and infrastructure to improve their competitive advantage and efficiencies. Leading statistician Nate Silver, founder of FiveThirtyEight.com, will be the conference’s keynote speaker. Silver is noted for his innovative analyses of political polling. He gained national attention during the 2008 presidential election when he correctly predicted the result of primaries and the presidential winner in 49 states. In 2012, he predicted accurate outcomes for all 50 states.

Brain Is 10 Times More Active Than Previously Measured, UCLA Researchers Find

A UCLA team discovered that dendrites are electrically active in animals that are moving around freely, generating nearly 10 times more spikes than somas. The finding challenges the long-held belief that spikes in the soma are the primary way in which perception, learning and memory formation occur.
