i think its a great idea that the first paper be philosophic than scientific...just so people can get a perception of others views of what it would means to study brain sciences: cogsci/neurosci/ai/alife/ling etc. This gives us a generic view of where people are interms of knowledge and perhaps academicly and what goal they would aim for in particpating in such a journal club.
But i'd have to agree after the first, that all the papers be of some scientific nature(any science relation or math/cs).
Also how would this M&B club take place? just on these threads? or are there other methods like msging systems? I should be able to participate end of jan/mid-feb.
