Abstract:

Exciting opportunities often come along with the creation of new technology.  The internet is no exception. In this talk, I will describe some new web portals that we have developed:  Faceblind.org for the recruitment and education of a special population,  TestMyBrain.org and manybrains.net for the conduct of research more broadly, and most recently lab.tellab.org for education.
