mathematics - 2017-06-04T06:03:20Z agoWrite a proof for the collatz conjecture defined
Let's write a proof proving or disproving that there is one or more numbers that do not satisfy the conjecture premise.
neuroscience - 2017-06-04T01:56:49Z agoThe global workspace hypothesis for defining the biological basis of consciousness defined
Global Workspace reconciles the limited capacity of momentary conscious content with the vast repertoire of long-term memory.
biology - 2017-06-04T01:55:37Z agoThe Dynamic Core hypothesis defined
The Dynamic Core proposes that reentrant neural activity in the thalamocortical system gives rise to conscious experience.
mathematics - 2017-05-28T01:32:45Z agoWrite a software to solve the collatz conjecture divided
In this project, we will build a software program to test a very large set of numbers to test out the conjecture and maybe find a counter example.
mathematics - 2017-05-28T01:21:35Z agoFinding a counter example to the conjecture divided 1 subproblem
In this branch, let's try to see if we can find a counter example to the conjecture and explore different strategies or trying a very large number of possibilities and executing the calculations
mathematics - 2017-05-28T01:18:52Z agoCollatz Conjecture divided 2 subproblems
Pick any number. If that number is even, divide it by 2. If it's odd, multiply it by 3 and add 1. Now repeat the process with your new number. If you keep going, you'll eventually end up at 1. Every time. Mathematicians have tried millions of numbers and they've never found a single one that... Read more
neuroscience - 2017-05-21T07:54:11Z agoPhilosophical definition of consciousness defined
At the philosophical level, how should consciousness be defined?
neuroscience - 2017-05-21T07:53:17Z agoBiological definition divided 2 subproblems
In this branch we should define consciousness at a biological level
neuroscience - 2017-05-21T07:37:06Z agoCurrent classic definition of consciousness defined
Establishing the current accepted definitions of consciousness
mathematics - 2017-05-14T10:02:29Z agoProving that the prime quadruplets are infinite defined
This project will prove that the number of prime quadruplets is infinite
neuroscience - 2017-03-19T18:08:25Z agoDefining consciousness divided 3 subproblems
What is the neural basis of subjective experience, cognition, wakefulness, alertness, arousal, and attention? Is there a "hard problem of consciousness"? If so, how is it solved? What, if any, is the function of consciousness?
mathematics - 2017-03-19T17:26:45Z agoReliability theory defined
Reliability theory suggests that biological systems start their adult life with a high load of initial damage. Reliability theory is a general theory about systems failure. It allows researchers to predict the age-related failure kinetics for a system of given architecture (reliability... Read more
mathematics - 2017-03-19T17:26:45Z agoDNA damage theory defined
Alexander was the first to propose that DNA damage is the primary cause of aging. Early experimental evidence supporting this idea was reviewed by Gensler and Bernstein. By the early 1990s experimental support for this proposal was substantial, and further indicated that DNA damage due... Read more
mathematics - 2017-03-19T17:26:44Z agoChemical damage defined
hile there may be some validity to the idea that for various types of specific damage detailed below that are by-products of metabolism, all other things being equal, a fast metabolism may reduce lifespan, in general this theory does not adequately explain the differences in lifespan either...

mathematics - 2017-03-19T17:26:44Z agoGene regulation defined
number of genetic components of aging have been identified using model organisms, ranging from the simple budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae to worms such as Caenorhabditis elegans and fruit flies (Drosophila melanogaster). Study of these organisms has revealed the presence of at least two... Read more
