System Administration Ongoing, Possible Outages

[UPDATE]: System update is complete. Enjoy the new look. In preparation for the trip to SFN2010, the Stanford Neuroblog is being updated with a new look. As part of this upgrade, system administrators will be altering settings on our proxy servers - the site may disappear from view for a brief period of time.

We expect the transition to be relatively painless, and to be complete within the next few days.

Thank you for your patience.
