Can a brain still compose stream of consciousness if it can't write itself ??? Cry

What goes wrong in the brain when someone can't spell

By studying stroke victims who have lost the ability to spell, researchers have pinpointed the parts of the brain that control how we write words.


In the latest issue of the journal Brain, Johns Hopkins University neuroscientists link basic spelling difficulties for the first time with damage to seemingly unrelated regions of the brain, shedding new light on the mechanics of language and memory.

"When something goes wrong with spelling, it's not one thing that always happens—different things can happen and they come from different breakdowns in the brain's machinery," said lead author Brenda Rapp, a professor in the Department of Cognitive Sciences. "Depending on what part breaks, you'll have different symptoms."

3-D printing confirms physical model of brain folds
February 1, 2016

The team made a three-dimensional, gel model of a smooth fetal brain based on MRI images. The model's surface was coated with a thin layer of elastomer gel, as an analog of the cortex. To mimic cortical expansion, the gel brain was immersed …more
The distinctive troughs and crests of the human brain are not present in most animals; highly folded brains are seen only in a handful of species, including some primates, dolphins, elephants and pigs. In humans, folding begins in fetal brains around the 20th week of gestation and is completed only when the child is about a year and a half.

The secret to groovy drumming may be math

Hold the line, love isn't always on time—and neither is the drummer.deepblue4you/iStockphoto


By Kerry KleinJun. 26, 2015 , 6:00 PM



People have long known that professional musicians don’t keep time with the dogged precision of a metronome. However, in deviating from a perfectly steady beat, one professional drummer makes patterns in his timing and loudness that have a particular mathematical form—a fractal—a new study shows. Previous research has shown that the fractal nature of time deviations makes music sound distinctly human.
A fractal is a pattern that looks "self-similar" on many different scales. For example, statistically, a coastline may look just as jagged on the scale of 10 kilometers as it does on the scale of 1000 kilometers. Fractals can emerge in temporal patterns, too, and researchers have observed rhythmic fractal patterns in many controlled musical experiments. Such work sheds light on the unique signatures that musicians impart into their work, and it could help researchers make the rhythmically perfect music generated by computers and drum machines sound more human.


Holger Hennig, a physicist at the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization in Göttingen, Germany, and colleagues decided to analyze the technique of prolific drummerJeff Porcaro, one of the more famous musicians most people have never heard of. For more than a decade he drummed for the band Toto, and as a session musician he kept time for an extensive list of musical icons including Pink Floyd, Steely Dan, Michael Jackson, and Madonna. Porcaro died of a heart attack in 1992. Hennig and his colleagues chose to study Porcaro’s technique because the paper’s lead author, physicist Esa Räsänen of the Tampere University of Technology in Finland, is himself a drummer and admires Porcaro’s work.


As a representative sample of Porcaro’s timekeeping skills, the research team focused on the studio recording of the 1982 hit “I Keep Forgettin’ ” by singer Michael McDonald. The rapid, high-pitched tink-tink-tink-tink keeping the beat is the hi-hat, a clamshell arrangement of two small cymbals that a drummer opens and closes with a foot pedal and simultaneously strikes with a drumstick. With one hand, Porcaro hit the hi-hat four times on every beat, in subbeats known as sixteenth notes, and motored out almost 400 of them in every minute of the song.


To the listener, the tinks sound flawlessly steady. But Hennig knew that the fractallike deviations he’d observed in previous studies were imperceptible to the human ear, and he wondered whether Porcaro’s rhythm would obey the same mathematical laws. He was also curious about what he’d find if he analyzed the volumes of the tinks, which Porcaro clearly modulates. So Hennig and his team pored over the 1982 recording and statistically analyzed the onset times, interbeat intervals, and amplitudes of Porcaro’s sixteenth notes.


Both the intervals between sixteenth notes and their volumes wavered throughout the piece. Moreover, those variations were similar on time scales ranging from a few seconds to the length of the entire song (3 minutes and 39 seconds), showing that the pattern formed fractals, the researchers reported on 3 June in PLOS ONE. “It seems that the timekeeper in the brain not only produces fractal timing,” Hennig says, “but likely also fractal intensity or, in this case, loudness.”


Psychologist Edward Large, director of the Music Dynamics Laboratory at the University of Connecticut, Storrs, who was not involved in the study, agrees that the fractal patterns Hennig’s team discovered in amplitude are exciting. “That, in a way, is the stronger analysis in this particular paper,” he says.


What’s more, timing and volume varied independently, so that the fractals formed by each were different. That observation surprised and enticed Large. “If most of my colleagues had seen that [loudness and timing] were highly correlated, they would have said, ‘of course,’” Large says, because musicians tend to play faster music louder, and vice versa. But instead, “there’s some independent control going on that’s really subtle.”
Hennig plans to continue studying rhythmic patterns found in recorded music and produced by multiple players. That work should help him hone a computer doink-headhe developed to introduce “humanizing” imperfections into computer-generated music. His software is already being used by electronic musician James Holden and many other recording artists.


Hennig doesn’t feel that his work demystifies a raw human art form. In fact, he thinks the study shows how beautiful and mysterious the human brain can be. “I would say that we are totally unpredictable and somewhat predictable at the same time,” he says. “But on top of that, we expect that there’s some Jeff Porcaro magic in there"

"A scan showed damage that was forcing his brain to overcompensate in certain areas that most people do not have access to."

So also, I think the brain can be likewise driven into hyper-conscious states
through optical stimulation and possibly magnetic impulses...

...for instance...wired into a Chua oscillator, LEDs can be made to flash
chaotically, with the result that, through stochastic resonance, similar
patterns in certain brainwaves may increase in amplitude...

the Road to Eleusis sounds interesting.

The Eleusian mysteries are suspected of being stimulated by psilocybe {and other},
but the psilocybe makes most sense.


Quote:A recent hypothesis suggests that the ancient Egyptians 
cultivated Psilocybe Cubensis on barley, 
and associated it with the deity Osiris.

They would drink a concoction called Kykeon, which used barley.
Once in a while up on the mountain in thought experiments,
I would find a tight brilliant yellow Amanita Muscaria.
What you do is take the meat just under the cap top,
and that has the most potent concentrations.
I don't want muscaria in my stomach,
because it digests slowly and thus the high will get recurrent surges,
and you can get too high.
I just take a small choice of top cap section, chew it up,
and hold it under my tongue as long as possble,
until I have to spit it out, before swallowing the mess, ... maybe 2-4 minutes.
Or little pieces of that cap section under the tongue in stages while hiking down.
This allows a very subdued controllable experience ... 
right on the edge of the threshold of A. Muscaria taking over.

I did it!
Successful at the first 15 pointed geometry using your last fractal,
just inside a 5000 by 5000 grid.
I got lost in the geometry splicing but somehow found the correct method by chance.
It is an unusual set of angles ...
central is 24 degrees
the two base angles in the isosceles are 78 degrees each.

I placed a 9 point star of the same fractal material inside.

I've never dared Amanita mus.,

RE: 3D MANDLEBROT - Kalter Rauch - 02-04-2016

V...so the 5000X5000 setting caused your rendering problem, huh?
Supposedly ChaosPro doesn't have that limitation
but I've never tried beyond 1600X1200.

Your latest 15-gon (esp. the large version) turned out pretty great
except the inner central part didn't enlarge as well as the rest of the structure
because the pixels were noticeably bigger.
Image does exhibit retinal phosphine stimulation
in response to certain color combinations, however...
I'd like to see a rotation applied to an entire n-gon...
solely for scientific purposes, of course...... Reefer

My latest above was another attempt at metallic look...
but I couldn't get rid of very small dots, etc
without losing the entire image look.
I tried a gimp sharpening routine(unsharp mask)
and I thought it helped...
(feedback?)

RE: 3D MANDLEBROT - Kalter Rauch - 02-11-2016

OK...the other day I g
ot a GIMP set of plugins...really loaded with stuff like g'mic which includes
lots of sharpening tools like deconvolution.
This next image started as a simple zoom into the top of the heap in my previous pic
and I wound up inside it looking out,
which I enhanced with a dark gold fog
that made features in the distance appear far off w/o any depth of field adj.

[Image: MansDEtest6.jpg]

"...I was wondering if he is mix mastering the fractals into other imagery..."

That I don't know. A program called SubBlue had that feature,
which I tested OK but the GUI overall was very slow and klunky.
I've lurked at fractal forums for some while,
which is where I first Marsczaks work.
search images/marsczak menger sponge.
There's a lot of fly-thru anim. on utube that use that fractal.


RE: 3D MANDLEBROT - Kalter Rauch - 02-11-2016

Your pentagonal interpretation works really well with the gold filigree
winding through the middle......

As per my last above,
I notice some very bad artifacts
that I suspect are due to
using an unsharp mask more than once,
and edges are over done... Dunno

Your last warranted long inspection...esp. the magnified imgur version.
I'm seeing a weird hybrid between a cobra and temple
made out of a wood/plastic material!
So far, I've only seen a "fog" effect in ChaosPro, but maybe gimp has something.
I'll try something with lighter fog to more show how it better deals with distance without blurring.

I have been swamped with field work in jade forays for the last week.
Every day, all day pretty much while the weather has allowed search patterns.
So I have been distracted with hard work, but outdoor fun.

Your last few images there kind of remind me that within the fractal constructs,
a "hidden order" eventually appears,
especially the last two images.
Color schemes don't appeal to me, but I have color issues with the old eyes.

Of the last three images, the second one was quite unusual,
and had interesting areas of depth.
Curious how that baby blue coloration kind of sneaks into narrow niches.
The part I liked the best was the very bottom center area of the image.
...


RE: 3D MANDLEBROT - Kalter Rauch - 02-27-2016

I think I know the area you mean...
that small grill pattern seen alternating within
large windows between larger ports.
I was unable to zoom within that bottom center area
because the program reached a limit beyond which there's only featureless fog...
very frustrating...sometimes fixable after much trial and error......

One "hidden order" you refer to, as per the Mandelbrot set,
is that each point in that set represents a unique Julia set,
each of which is infinite...though not always searchable
with 3D versions.

When was the last time you had your eyes looked at?
All that UV is bad.
Could be treatable, though.

I tried to regrid your DD of the painting in the 420 thread,
that I reposted the images of.
I was swamped with trying to get that to work last night and failed.
Then I was just fried. Lol
That and a beer ... gave me a hangover this morning.
The DD's just don't regrid like the fractals, at least not yet.
It turned out like a regrid I did once of a giant mass of multicolored slimy starfish 
adhering to the base of 15 foot high boulder in the low tide sands.
Interesting how regrid can fail to enhance different types of images,
ie,
they have more appeal prior, or the geometric enhancement just goes stale in impact.

"fog gradations" Hmm2

That image is the best of the set you have recently posted.
I like a lot of perspectives in that image. 
I will try and work with that one.
Hopefully tomorrow, lots of irons in the fire here in the forum, 
and elsewhere in life has it's demands as well.
...


RE: 3D MANDLEBROT - Kalter Rauch - 03-03-2016

As per "fog gradations"...

OK...there is a fog parameter which sets where fog begins,
and then there is an unclearly labeled setting that seems to imply a range of opacity
as the fog increases with distance,
and there are a few other related settings which are supposed to be an "exponential part of fog"
So the last image shows, for instance,
the brightest features as the closest shapes,
beyond which, looking through the openings at the top,
shows distant shapes dimmed by a dark gold fog, and that slightly closer shapes
are rendered as a little lighter.
I've just been using the fog feature in ChaosPro,
but Gimp has 2 or more different fog tools that are more involved
(like adjusting fog turbulence, that some experiments show effects like dry ice vapors,
which some purists might criticize as cheap theatrics,
since the turbulence is derived from fractal "plasma clouds"
unrelated to the Mandelbrot formula).

I was talking to someone who works in a custum photolab
about achieving metallic effects and she mentioned a metallized printing paper
that is exposed by a laser photo printer.
A sample enlargement showed a meadow of orange wildflowers
 in front of a dark grove of trees.
The orange indeed had a metal appearance
while the dark shadows didn't.
So I'm looking at uploading some of these 3D images to the lab.
Kodak and Fuji both make this kind of paper.
It's not ink-jet technology,
and is processed through developing solutions...somehow...... Dunno
Anyway I can render these so far up to 3200X2400
