MY ROLE? Not regarding myself as a proper scientist, I do not like to be on focus: I just pull far-flung ideas together (mainly in neuroscience). Therefore, I publish in rather different disciplines (medicine, biology, physics, math, philosophy and, above all, neuroscience) and Journals (also nuts in Nature, Science and New England Journal of Medicine).
MY FIELD? "empirically testable theoretical developments", in physics and biology (mostly brain).
MY METHOD? a "testable rationalism": experimental previsions arising from top-down, deductive mathematical approaches.
Here you are two short YouTube movies (less than one minute!) that elucidate my main ideas:
My electronic comments to foremost published papers
Arturo Tozzi Center for Nonlinear Science, Department of Physics, University of North Texas, Denton, Texas, USA firstname.lastname@example.org Arturo.Tozzi@unt.edu As recently suggested, the brain activity displays multidimensional features (1). Recent work has shown that the appropriate...>
Looking at their very interesting approach, we noticed that the Authors of this foremost paper used changes in curvature to invert the arrow of time (see their Figure 1, second and third panel, where they, almost continuously, modify the phase of the wave-function in every point). It is exactly the...>
The holographic principle, first proposed by 't Hooft and Susskind, is inspired by Bekenstein's and Hawking's account of black hole thermodynamics, according to which the maximal entropy in any region scales with the radius squared, and not cubed. This means that the informational content of...>

RE: DOES HORIZONTAL TRANSMISSION AMEND OUR CONCEPT OF LIVING SPECIES? Arturo Tozzi, Adjunct Assistant Professor,University of North Texas (12 February 2019) Demarcation among objects and things is somewhat arbitrary, because our mind tends to exclude the continuity...>

Arturo Tozzi Center for Nonlinear Science, Department of Physics, University of North Texas, Denton, Texas, USA The Diffusion Tensor Imaging and Diffusion Tensor Tractography of neural projections performed by Alizadeh et al. are elliptic curves, i.e., they can be abstractly described in...>
In this beautiful paper, Kawabata et al. propose a topologically-framed unification of some physical features. It is well-known that topology deals with the properties of space preserved under continuous deformations, such as stretching, twisting, bending and so on. This...>
My electronic response to an intriguing paper publised by Neuron In this paper, Tripathy et al. (2018) report that Mast1, espressed just in postmitotic neuronal dendritic and axonal compartments, is...>
Banino et al.'s approach paves the way also to a potential approach towards a better comprehension of our "second brain", i.e., the myenteric plexus. We know that enthorinal grid cells are placed in exagons and fire when a moving animal crosses their firing fields. If we examine flat mounts...>
