Hello and welcome!

Welcome to Neurophilosophy at ScienceBlogs! 

I've been working behind the scenes for about a week, trying to get to grips with using Movable Type. Now I've got the hang of my new blogging platform, and have configured the blog the way I want it - although I'll be making minor modifications and adding various bits and pieces - I'm ready to go. Many thanks to all those who helped me out while I was setting up, especially Chris, Jake and Sandra.

If you've come from my old blog, you can expect more of the same. If you're a new reader, that means regular updates on new neuroscience research and emerging technologies, occasional essays about various historical aspects of neuroscience, and anything else that I might find interesting. Above all else, there will be an emphasis on good quality science writing and effective communication of scientific information to both scientists and non-scientists. 

I started the old blog in February 2006, and have devoted much time to it since then. I've received approximately 332,000 page views and 1,16o comments, and there are about 2,000 subscribers to 2 RSS feeds.

In the past 18 months I've written 651 posts at the old blog, and rather than importing the archives to this blog, I'm going to repost some of my favourite and most popular items. I'm happy to receive suggestions and criticisms, so feel free to leave comments. But most importantly, enjoy your visit to the blog, and come back soon.

Last week, the number of subscribers to this blog's RSS feed passed the 2,000 mark, after teetering just below that number for a couple of months. It's very gratifying to know that so many people enjoy my writing, and although this increase in subscriptions is tiny compared to the total number of…

During my winter blogging break, I thought I'd repost of few of my "greatest hits" from my old blog, just so you all wouldn't miss me so much. This one is from September 24, 2007. It's my initial thoughts about the blog I've been using to post my IL session notes. It's worth noting that the blog…

Hi Mo, I'm having trouble with your feed... Neurophilosophy isn't listed from the menu linked page, and the meta tag feed my browser picks up doesn't exist.
There's also a css @import bug showing on the first line of this page. FF2.0 here.

Welcome to The Family! You can check out any time you like but you can never leave!

Congratulations on the new digs. Now you'll be making the big bucks. (I was going to say something about the feed, but it looks like you're on top of it.)

Perhaps some time soon you might explain what you mean by the term "neurophilosophy."

Thank you, thank you!!

I'm still ironing out the kinks, but the major issues, such as the problem with the feed, should now be resolved.

Tegumai - I use the term "neurophilosophy" in the literal sense. neuro- meaning relating to the nervous system, and philo- meaning denoting an interest in.
