How Cancy is Your Cortex?

This post was deleted for the following reason: I'm flattered, to be sure, but a short summary of a journal article is way too thin for a solid post. Please find stronger links and take the time to catch your typos next time around. -- cortex



 
If the typos there were deliberate, masterfully done.

It's almost as if the article says that learning stuff makes you smarter.

this is pretty short on info for a front page post...
or maybe i'm just not smart enough to glean it.

i'm also wondering if all i need is more room for expansion in my goretex then why can't i just buy a bigger coat? i could hold a lot more stuff in a bigger coat. especially if it had tubes running all through it instead of pockets. tubes!

It's been almost 15 minutes since this was posted, and not one person has told me how cancy Metafilter's own cortex is. Perhaps this should been posted in AskMeFi?

Wow...another shitty "science daily" article.

Did they REALLY dumb down "the capacity for plasticity" as "fanciness".
How unfancy of them (the microscope I use as a monocle just shattered).
