I just got back from my internship in New York on Sunday night. It was a lot of fun. I had some great discussions with the other researchers in my group. My project was to help develop and test a computational model of the cerebellum. I learned a lot about the cerebellum (of course) and was introduced to several information theory-based approaches (like Linsker's Infomax framework and the subsequent ICA work of Bell & Sejnowski).
Now that I'm home, I'll be able to work on my own research again. I'd like to start looking at better context representations soon, possibly using ICA.
