Brain Development

http://visual.ly/brain-develpment

Nicely done comic /infographic on Brain development found through Neurobollocks via Mindhacks.  All these connections on the internet of blogs linking to other blogs linking to a myriad of sites…is not unlike the neurons connecting to so many others within the brain…so that we are like part of one large metamind.  I know this isn’t exactly a new insight, but it still makes me ponder as new neuroscience research confirms the facts.  This article from the BBC “Brain works more like the internet than ‘top down’ company” also talks about how the connections are not one way but rather form loops or feedbacks.  This is perhaps not unlike pingbacks and trackbacks.  This also fits in nicely with the title of one of my favorite books “I am a Strange Loop“.
