Welcome to the Cortical Metrics Blog

The Table of Contents is your friend…
Our Blog is a bit different from other blogs in that we don’t consider the posts as being time dependent. While new findings are sometimes the topic of a post, we consider the posts timeless. That is – the most informative articles may not be the most recent. Additionally, the overall comprehensive nature of the Blog might be difficult to grasp if you are scrolling through the first few posts. So here is a table of contents for your convenience and hopefully, it will give the reader a quick overview of the Blog contents and a way to get to articles/posts that sound interesting. Some topics listed here do not have Blog posts yet. Perhaps the best way to view the blog is as a book-in-progress with each blog post as a chapter.
