Andrea E. Martin & I present: On logical inference over brains, behaviour, and artificial neural networks!
Formal logic allows us to describe metatheories in use in cognitive computational neuroscience, and helps us spot formal/inferential fallacies!
Another example why I avoid @FrontiersIn@twitter.com journals. After inquiring, I was told I was "personally selected" by "esteemed editors" to contribute to an epigenetic mechanisms of plant development issue even though my research profile is clearly not plants, development or epigenetics
Once again we are begging Computer Scientists to read even a single chapter of an undergraduate philosophy text book https://twitter.com/sama/status/1574196546039517184
I'm not asking anyone to feel sorry for the Iranian people, I'm asking you all to take notes 😉 https://twitter.com/niloufar_s/status/1574253889070604288
Sometimes ancient stoic philosophers sum it up best. Epictetrans always delivers.
termite twitter scares me
@JonHaidt@twitter.com @firstname.lastname@example.org @email@example.com is firmly connected to the plutocrat-funded systemic racism network, as shown by his working with the far-right racist crap rag Quillette.
Cypriot Arabic spoken by the Local Maronite Population🇨🇾
Arabic-Speaking Christians arrived in Cyprus in the 7th Century. This Dialect of Arabic is thus quite ancient. It also has noticeable Greek & Aramaic influence.
Seal-ebrity spotting! 😍
For those that may not know, Shoebert, a grey seal, was rescued in front of the Beverly, Massachusetts Police Department this weekend and transported to Mystic Aquarium for observation and any needed medical care before his future release to the wild!
The most heartbreaking thing unhoused people frequently tell me is how they feel like ghosts because people won't talk to them or look at them in the eyes. They can spend days and even weeks without a single person responding to or acknowledging them. A warm hi goes a long way.
this single tweet has made me as concerned for the future of humanity as pretty much anything in the news. we are doomed. https://twitter.com/markovmagnifico/status/1574202719258058752

Thank you all for the support you showed this weekend as I learned our @GirlsWhoCode@twitter.com books had been banned. I spent the weekend digging into what happened, and have a few updates to share.
Why Did A Pennsylvania School District Ban 'Girls Who Code' Books? https://www.wonkette.com/girls-who-code-books-banned
This series was our labor of love, our commitment to our community to make sure that girls — all girls — see themselves as coders. You cannot be what you cannot see, and this was our effort to get more girls, girls of color interested in coding.
I woke up this morning to a news alert that our @GirlsWhoCode@twitter.com middle-grade book series was banned by some school districts as part of the Mom for Liberty effort to ban books. To be honest, I am so angry I cannot breathe.
Which country, I’ll stay away
“I wish you were as accurate & as much to be relied on, as I am myself.
