Retrospectacle: A Neuroscience Blog

My time here at Retrospectacle has been glorious, magnificent, awesome! However, I have decided to end things here and start a brand-spankin’-new blog (yes, here at ScienceBlogs) with Steve Higgins from Omnibrain as a co-blogger. I’m in my final grad year and felt that having a coblogger might relieve some of my time issues, as well as reinvigorate my love of science communication here.

But, we need your help to name our new blog! We’re holding a contest to Name That Blog, with the winner receiving a slew of recent science books, a subscription to SEED, and a host of other sciency prizes. Plus my eternal love and adoration! The blog will be general wonderful science stuff with a neuroscience slant, so feel free to be creative as hell with the naming. Leave ideas in the comments here, or email them to me. Since there is a prize please be sure to let me know how to contact you in case you win. Multiple entries are fine! Thanks and good luck!

    “The Neural Net”
    “The Brainstem”
    “The Conarium” (a nice nod to Descartes)
    “The Ghost in the Machine”
    “The Action Potential”
    “Transduction”

    or…
    “Beauty and the Beast”

    No Brain No Hope

    The SEEDian Brain

    Seeds With a Brain

    NeuroTrash

    AA Brain (so you can beat Bora’s “A Blog…” in the Blog Index)

    TOP THREE/ MOST ACTIVE (would probably get you a few extra visitors…)

    Since someone has already suggested “Retrobrain”, how about “Omni-spectacle” (i.e., multiple viewpoints)?

    A nod to your research: “The Auracle”. Actually, “The Oracle” would make a nice, if maybe pretentious, blog name too.

    A nod to Steve: “The Cocklea”. (No, I don’t know why I suggested that. It just sounded funny in my head.)

    Or, for just a touch of the absurd: “I’m Not Sandra”.

  15. #15 Tyler DiPietro
    January 27, 2008

    How about “Oh, Synapse!”?

  16. #16 Kurt
    January 27, 2008

    Following Bora’s suggestion, how about “The Viral Spiral”? Or maybe just “Spirality”?

  17. #17 J-Dog

    I submit: Shelley & Steve Do Science
    The Parrot & Pirate Speak

    BUT, the name’s not important, keeping you blogging, so I can keep reading about stuff I know nothing about, is the important thing!

    I like speedwell’s “Of Two Minds” — just ambiguous enough to be intriguing.

    Two blog titles I have thought of using:

    Misfiring Synapses

    You can have them. :D

    January 28, 2008

    Hmm.

    Going Out of Our Heads – almost the same as a nifty Fatboy Slim song.
    Up the Brainstem

    I really like Speedwell’s Of Two Minds as well, but of course, if you eventually invite a third it becomes a little irrelevant.

  31. #31 tomh

    The Brain Bank? Picking my Brain? Two Hemispheres?

    Or, inspired by Young Frankenstein, “After 5pm, leave Brain under door”, or “Abbie Normal”. If you’ve seen the film, you get the gag.

  32. #32 Italo M. R. Guedes
    January 28, 2008

    What about something like “Brainhacking”, or perhaps only “Brain” or, even better “Cerebrus”. It could also be “Nervous Brain”, or “Over the Spine”, you name it.

    I found out about your contest from PZ at Pharyngula. He had a paragraph from Frankenstein, which included the above phrase, which his steel trap of a mind seems to have missed.

    If Life has taught me anything, it is that when one is feeling a bit at sea, a little perplexed, the best course of action is to ask oneself the question “Ah, but would it make a good band name?”

    So, I immediately went to my ancient list of proposed band names and came up with some possibilities for you which are not nearly as juvenile as most on the list ( I happen to believe that the very best name for a cover band is “Tune Pang”… Sigh. ) and which might be appropriate:

    1) The Nervous Accomplice ( an old Perry Mason episode)

    2) Pavlov’s Cat

    3) Fan Mail from a Flounder (from the Rocky and Bullwinkle show)

    4) Rinse Thoroughly

    5) Dubious Nucleus

    The list goes downhill from here. Pretty rapidly, I’m afraid. :)

    Bird’s Eye View!

    It’s a tad corny, but it does incorporate aspects from both of your respective sets of interests and/or study. It also has a high-level connotation, vaguely along the same lines as the names of your individual blogs.

    It’s similar to what’s already been said, but “The Blog With Two Brains!” (starring Steve Martin?)

    Or maybe “Jive Mind”, with a little funky, dancing brain for a mascot? Too Silly? Ok.

    How about “This American Lobe?” NPR might pick it up.

    Maybe “Of Minds and Men?” Maybe not.

    “A Stroke of Genius”

    …Okay, that one’s probably wrong in many ways (though not the “genius” part)…

    I’ve got it: “Brainspawn.” As it is, ScienceBlogs is direly lacking Futurama references.

    I’d just like to voice my support for Mercurious’ sugestion, Abby Normal. Alternatively, Abby Normal Brain. Of course I may be biased.

    Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: Igor, would you mind telling me whose brain I did put in?
    Igor: And you won’t be angry?
    Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: I will NOT be angry.
    Igor: Abby someone.
    Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: Abby someone. Abby who?
    Igor: Abby Normal.
    Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: Abby Normal?
    Igor: I’m almost sure that was the name.
    Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: Are you saying that I put an abnormal brain into a seven and a half foot long, fifty-four inch wide GORILLA?
    [shakes and grabs him]
    Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: IS THAT WHAT YOU’RE TELLING ME?

    Classic!

    Damn, just came up with these before checking previous posts… thought I was so clever and original! Ah well, guess these get my vote for what its worth – here’s what I had written:

    1. Corpus callosum
    …as it will be a link between two halves of the newly formed whole, co-ordinating information

    another alternative:

    2. Hybrid vigour
    …reflecting that you’re combining the strengths of two lineages

    Hemispheres

    …or some variation of the sort. From an evolutionary perspective, the development of the hemispheres was very significant. The distinction of the two allowed for many important functions. (Or something like that, I’m no expert but I hope you get the gist of what I’m saying…)

    Hey Shelley,

    good luck with the new blog! I have a suggestion – I left it under your newest post about the contest, but I am re-posting it here as I see most people left their comments on this post.
    My suggestion is:

    Cerebrathon

    This is a cross between cerebration and marathon – as both of you guys are PhD students, I think I do not need to explain anything about why I chose “marathon”!

    Or how about-
    fragrant mind- ala BNL
    altered consciousness
    lucid lemniscus
    receptive aphasia-not sayin’ you can’t comuunicate. it
    could be an inside joke.
    dendritic critics- ouch thats bad
    myelinated madness
    hypnogogic hallucinations

    I better just quit while I’m ahead. :-D

    Ready for a bad one? This is going to hurt.

    Or – I might kick myself for suggesting this – “McBrainersons”
