Architecture_24

Entry: Three-dimensional design
Focus: Thomas Heatherwick



And ideas are what Heatherwick is all about; he sees himself as someone who can help bring ideas together and develop them. "As a practitioner, one feels like a vessel of trying to implement thoughts that are accumulations of influences of many people. I know people who have brilliant ideas but they just don't make things happen, they don't do that bit. I almost feel it's my duty to help implement them."

Science_32

Entry: Neurobiology
Focus: Neural Computation



Neural Computation disseminates important, multidisciplinary research results and reviews of research areas in neural computation-a field that attracts psychologists, physicists, computer scientists, neuroscientists, and artificial intelligence investigators, among others. For researchers looking at the twin scientific and engineering challenges of understanding the brain and building computers, it highlights common problems and techniques in modeling the brain, and the design and construction of neurally inspired information processing systems. Timely, short communications, full-length research articles, and reviews focus on important advances and also cover the broad range of inquisition into neural computation.
