On Dec.26th, 2010 I had a very interesting lunch/discussion with Margot/David Gleich/Niels vL on Google’s page ranking algorithm and its relevance as a possible framework for studying representation and retrieval in the brain.  Margot is exploring the idea of creating an interdisciplinary group at Stanford to study this further. Exciting! (In half-jest I told her I would sign-on as a post-doc.)

One of the topics of the discussion on synchronization in large scale networks. David Gleich is an expert in this area and helped some researchers, at Stanford Med School, model epilepsy (a case of synchronization gone wild!).  Fascinating subject.  Now I have a lot more to read.

I also threw this idea out to Bruno Olshausen, at the Redwood Neuroscience Institute. Should be interesting to see what he has to say.
