          Most of us would consider ourselves curious about one thing or another but one St. Cloud State University student's curiosity led to passion and eventually a pretty unlikely accomplishment.

            A professor of logic and metaphysics at Edinburgh University, Clark is the author of “Being There: Putting Brain, Body and World Together Again” and “Natural-Born Cyborgs: Minds, Technologies and the Future of Human Intelligence.” His research interests include robotics and artificial life, the cognitive role of human-built structures, specialization and interactive dynamics in neural systems, and the interplay between language, thought, socio-technological scaffolding and action. He is currently working on predictive coding models of neural function.

                Robert McCauley (William Rand Kenan Jr. University Professor and director of Emory's Center for Mind, Brain, and Culture) talks about his new book, (Oxford University Press, 2011). His main point is that our minds are better suited to religious belief than to scientific inquiry. Religion has existed for many thousands of years in every society because the kinds of explanations it provides are precisely the kinds that come naturally to human minds. Science, on the other hand, is a much more recent and rare development because it reaches radical conclusions and requires a kind of abstract thinking that only arises consistently under very specific social conditions. Religion makes intuitive sense to us, while science requires a lot of work. The naturalness of religion, he suggests, means that science poses no real threat to it, while the unnaturalness of science puts it in a surprisingly precarious position.

                    AUTHORS: Léo Terziman, Anatole Lécuyer, Sébastien Hillaire, Jan M. Wiener ABSTRACT: This paper reports one experiment conducted to evaluate the influence of oscillating camera motions on the perception of traveled distances in virtual environments. In the experiment, participants viewed visual projections of translations along straight paths. They were then asked to reproduce the traveled distance during a navigation phase using keyboard keys. Each participant had to complete the task (1) with linear camera motion, and (2) with oscillating camera motion that simulates the visual flow generated by natural human walking. Taken together, our preliminary results suggest that oscillating camera motions allow a more accurate distance reproduction for short traveled distances.
