Hi everyone! I'm Liz and new to this site/community. I'm hoping to connect with others and overcome my anxiety of posting/writing online. I was raised Episcopalian by parents who were atheists and my wife is ex-evangelical. I have so many questions about God, mindfulness, science, and emotional intelligence. I recently left the academic world and I write a lot about whiteness (especially the white savior complex), social media, and LGBTQ+ issues. Nice to meet ya'll! #introduction
I wanted an Ask Science Mike logo t-shirt to wear to Dragon con in September, but there are none for sale. Took advantage of a day off to create some fan art from a thrift store t-shirt and some fabric paint. I'm pretty happy with it. @mike
I’m in the process of making my Facebook account dormant. As one of my final posts, I would like to provide links to some clear and succinct descriptions of all that is wrong with that platform. I would appreciate any recommendations for what links might be best for this. Thanks. #Facebook
potential attack on a church; heartbreaking cultural loss
In this place, it is probably unnecessary to say this, but I feel a need. As a non-religious person, I find the fire at Notre-Dame horrifically tragic, and, if it is the result of arson, that act is reprehensible. It cannot be seen as justified by "anarchist", "feminist", or "anti-religion" activism, as some news sources have speculated.
I'll start us off: I wish more people knew that slavery never ended--it just changed its form.
I am a compulsive connectionist. Each insight is taken as a puzzle piece for a unified view of reality. Each is distinct, and all are connected. I am learning where I fit, and I am discovering the connections that make me more than a puzzle solver.
I am an academic cognitive scientist, conducting computational neuroscience research in search of how matter gives rise to mind. I am particularly interested in how the brain exhibits flexibility in learning, memory, and cognitive control.
I am an academic computational neuroscientist by day and a connection collector by night.
