Multitasking neurons can process several signals at once

The brain is a complex tangle of neurons that allow us to process lots of different stimuli at once. But according to new research from Duke University, that multi-tasking ability doesn’t necessarily come down to lots of neurons doing their own job. The team has found evidence that individual neurons can process multiple signals simultaneously, by rapidly alternating between them…

Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 Review

The Mega Man X Legacy Collection is an absolutely fantastic compilation that contains the first four Mega Man X games. The first three alone are some of the best video games ever made for the Super NES and are still coveted by fans. Mega Man X4 was a bit more divisive when initially released, but I found myself enjoying it despite the surprising evolution in the art style. I’m incredibly happy to have this well executed compilation in my library of modern consoles and available on the go.
Not only is this a collection of superb ports, but it also adds several features that will be a pleasant surprise for longtime fans. The Museum features artwork, the original Japanese Rockman X trailers, photos of Mega Man X collectibles, all the music from each game, and even the Day of Sigma animated short that shipped with Maverick Hunter X on the PlayStation Portable. You can also choose to play either the US or Japanese versions of any of the included games.

How Involved is Marvel in Making Legion? Not Very.

Marvel TV boss Jeph Loeb shed some light on what goes into making Legion at the show’s Comic-Con panel on Sunday, revealing that since Fox still holds the rights for all of the X-Men and their related properties, “the shows that are currently at Fox and the X-Men characters are really under their paw, so it’s through our partnership with FX that we found a way to be part of the process and be part of the creative.”
Loeb said that rather than taking a direct role in shaping the series, Marvel serves as “proud grandparents” for Legion, praising the show since it “doesn’t feel like anything else we’re doing.”
In terms of crossovers and Easter eggs between the properties – including the potential appearance of David’s father, Professor Xavier, Loeb said, “There’s a whole political ladder that we climb up and down – it’s more of a jungle gym. There’s Fox movies and then there’s FX and Fox in general then there’s Marvel and there’s Marvel Studios… the fact that this show is as good as it is is a testament to the talent of these people.” In other words, don’t hold your breath.
