athoverflow is an interactive website for mathematicians to ask and answer questions. John Baez, writing in the March 2010 edition of Notices of the American Mathematical Society states, “Math Overflow” has become a universal clearinghouse for math questions. There are many, many reasons why mathematics is of great value in consciousness science, not the least of which is to aid in finding paths through the data deluge. More and more neuroscientists utilize maths (to use the British expression) not out of physics envy but because their research would not be possible otherwise. Ma"Math Over Flow Name"ny scientists have entered neuroscience with degrees in mathematics, physics, electrical engineering, and the like.

Devoted to professional mathematicians, love of mathematics and a genuine question are the only real requirements to use and enjoy this marvelous site.

About the Blog: Cool Runnings

The 1993 cult-classic of the same name was a film about something unique yet not to be missed – the first-ever Jamaican Olympic bobsled team. In this site we aim to present you with yarns of a different sort – also unique and not to be missed – scientific and mathematical sites which will quicken pulses, expand horizons, and inspire. Each week we will present a different site, with a brief annotation from our editors. This is a labor of love, and we invite you to suggest your favorite sites as well. If your pick is chosen, we will include your choice (identified as contributed by you) as well as an autographed picture from a top scientist in consciousness science.

Consciousness science is highly interdisciplinary, and COOL RUNNINGS will reflect this, featuring sites from all over the pedagogical map. — Dr. Henri Montandon
