(discussed at meetup Wednesday 31 July 2013)
"Coherent EEG Indicators of Cognitive Binding During Ambiguous Figure Tasks" Klemm, Li, and Hernandez 2000
"We tested the hypothesis that perception of an alternative image in ambiguous figures would be manifest as high-frequency (gamma) components that become synchronized over multiple scalp sites as a "cognitive binding" process occurs."

mind v brain, hobson v solms

"Hobson and McCarley originally proposed in the 1970s that the differences in the waking-NREM-REM sleep cycle was the result of interactions between aminergic REM-off cells and cholinergic REM-on cells.[4] This was perceived as the activation-synthesis model, stating that brain activation during REM sleep results in synthesis of dream creation.[1][1] Hobson's five cardinal characteristics include: intense emotions, illogical content, apparent sensory impressions, uncritical acceptance of dream events, and difficulty in being remembered."

random tangents

(following previous discussion) - we might select a few to study in more depth (... or not! Plenty more to explore - suggestions (random or otherwise) are welcome.

stereoscopic perception:

some (maybe) interesting background on Information Theory (cool title...)

Claude Shannon: "Communication in the Presence of Noise"
File:Shannon noise.pdf
"We will call a system that transmits without errors at the rate C an ideal system.
 Such a system cannot be achieved with any finite encoding process
 but can be approximated as closely as desired."
