Human Brain Mapping 2009 – Presentations

I want to thank everyone at the Human Brain Mapping conference for their excellent comments and insight on my research. I had an unbroken string of amazing conversations with researchers from around the world – it was a real treat. Below you will find copies of both posters that I presented at HBM along with a copy of the slides that I used in my presentation. If you have any questions or would like larger copies of the figures please let me know.

    I am concerned about the omission of important information from your poster entitled “Neural correlates of interspecies perspective taking in the post-mortem Atlantic Salmon: An argument for multiple comparisons correction”. Any good scientist would want to know the details of post-scan culinary post-processing of the subject and the hedonic results of degustation of the subject when studying a population of salmon, even with N=1. I would be very appreciative if you would make this information publicly available. Thanks!

    I actually have a post ready to go that answers important questions such as these – I am just waiting for the manuscript to get accepted before I upload it to the weblog. People do seem to be genuinely interested in why we would scan a fish in the first place and whether or not we ate the fish for dinner. All these questions, and more, will be answered in time! ~ Craig

    Fascinating.. Now, would you be willing to publish the raw data? What is the software that was used to do the post processing?

    This really makes the case for reproducible research..

    One of my research areas has been high performance computing, and high-speed data transfer, so if it’s ‘just’ a matter of how to make a couple gigabytes of data public, please let me know, I’ll find someplace to put it. (email me at hozer@hozed.org )

    Troy – Send me an email if you would like to take a crack at the salmon data. We used SPM to process the data in the Matlab computing environment. ~ Craig [Prefrontal]

    This is so clever and hilarious. My psych lecturer mentioned it in passing when discussing the common problems with fMRI, and I just had to look it up. Thank you for the laugh, and for pointing out the implications of the multiple comparisons problem!!
