In case you missed it, Wired.com recently ran a feature of the work of ZRS Board Members Bradley Voytek, PhD and Timothy Verstynen, PhD.
Verstynen is a neuroscientist at the Center for the Neural Basis of Cognition in Pittsburgh, specializing in human brain imaging and neural network modeling, and Voytek is a neuroscientist at the University of California, Berkeley studying the role of neural oscillations in communicating brain networks. Together they authored a groundbreaking paper on zombie brain function titled “The Living Dead Brain”, in connection with their development of a complete three dimensional model of a zombie brain.
Their Theory of Consciousness Deficit Hypoactivity Disorder in the undead is defined as the loss of rational, voluntary and conscious behavior, replaced by delusional, impulsive aggression, stimulus driven attention, and the inability to coordinate motor and linguistic behaviors. In other words, zombies aren’t the most graceful creatures on the planet, but they sure do want to rip your guts out.
