My wayward brother and his girlfriend announced the birth of my niece Ella yesterday. Everybody seems to be fine and my brother seems almost silly happy from the emails I've got. Big congratulations everyone!
From Sweden, but I've been living in Osaka for nine years. I've worked in cognitive science, neuroscience and robotics.
I am affiliated with Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology, but placed at the RIKEN Advanced Institute of Computing Science in Kobe, where I work on a project to model the subcortical motor-related areas in order to better understand the physiological effects of Parkinsons disease.
