  • Knitting and Neuroscience

    A symposium on creativity, the brain, and yarn crafts. February 14, 2012 // 11am-6pm @ A&A

    Special guest speakers include:Ruth GrahnRex JungAnne CookeHelen FeatherstoneRodolfo Ilins

  • 10:00-10:50am Betsan Corkhill is a Physiotherapist who runs a clinic which utilizes knitting and cross stitching to help cope with chronic pain. She also runs a site called Stitchlinks.com which focuses on the use of therapeutic knitting as a healthcare tool.

    11:00-11:50am Ruth Grahn is a Professor of Psycology and Director of Behavioral Neuroscience Program at Connecticut College. She is an avid knitter and spinner who teaches knitting to behavioral neuro-science students as a way of explaining types of memory and motor systems.

    1:00-1:50pm Rex Jung is a leading scientist in the emerging field of positive neuroscience, the study of what the brain does well. Over the last several years, he has turned his attention to the manifestation of creativity in the braina cognitive capacity perhaps critically dep-endent upon, yet distinctly different, from intelligence.

    2:00-2:50pm Bill Harbaugh is the curator of The Museum of Scientifically Accurate Fabric Brain Art and Professor of Economics at the University of Oregon. The museum exhibits the world's largest collection of anatomically correct fabric brain art, inspired by research from neuroscience, dissection, and neuroeconomics.

    3:00-4:00pm Anne Cooke and Helen Featherstone are the brains behind Knit a Neuron a collaborative knitting art project that came to a close in Dec. 2011 that continues to raise funds for the charity and will have a permanent home in the University of Bristol's brain imaging center, Clinical Research Imaging Center. They are both scientists by training, science communicators, and avid yarners.

    A symposium that connects creativity, the brain, and yarn crafts. February 14, 2012 // 11am-6pm at the KMA

  • Myth vs RealityAll rats are dirty and carry disease.

    Rats aren't intelligent pets.

    Rats are not tame animals, they bite.

    TRUTH:

    Domesticated rats are free of diseases unless they

    come in contact with wild animals. Rats clean

    themselves much like cats do, and only become

    dirty when their cages are not cleaned regularly.

    TRUTH:

    It is fairly rare for domesticated rats to bite. Pet rats

    actually love the company of humans and only show

    aggression in rare circumstances. Rats are the least

    likely to bite compared to other rodents.

    Rats as Pets

    Rats should be kept in same sex pairs because they

    are social animals.

    The cage they live in must have at least 2 cubic feet

    per rat for them to live comfortably.

    Lifespans depends on how well you take care of

    them, what you feed them, and whether they were

    bred for health.

    Rats need to spend some time with you every day.

    And hour outside the cage of play time is recom-

    mended.

    Cages need to be cleaned about once a week to keep

    your rats clean and healthy. A monthly deep clean is

    also recommended.

  • Domesticated rats are free of diseases unless they come in contact with wild animals. Rats clean themselves much like cats do, and only become dirty when their cages are not cleaned regularly.

    Many professional animal trainers claim that rats are one of the easiest animals to train due to their adaptability, intelligence, and focus. They have been shown to be able to express joy, dream, use visual clues to navigate mazes, and have high social intelligence.

    Unlike their rodent relatives, its rare for pet rats to bite people. If they have been properly socialized and handled when young, rats love the company of their owners. They only show aggression in rare circumstances.

    All rats are dirty and carry disease.

    Rats arent intelligent pets.

    Rats arent tame animals. They bite.

    Rats are social animals and need to live with at least one rat companion. Same sex pairs are ideal.

    Rats require the same amount of care as a cat or dog. They are complex creatures that require love just like any other pet.

    You should spend at least 20 minutes or more a day play-ing with your rats outside their cage.

    Rats are chewers. Supply your rats with wooden chew toys to help keep them amused and their teeth healthy.

    When it comes to buying rats, you get what you pay for. Rats bought at pet stores generally are not as healthy and well socialized as those from breeders.
