This blog is about neuroscience:

an interdisciplinary science that involves other disciplines such as psychology, computer science, statistics, physics, philosophy, and medicine.

It is written by graduate students in the Neurosciences Graduate Program at UCSD:

The Graduate Program in Neurosciences at the University of California, San Diego offers an outstanding opportunity for graduate training in one of the most highly interactive scientific environments available in the United States. Our graduate program is ranked fourth in the country by the National Research Council of the National Academy of Sciences.

It is managed by the New Media Committee:

The New Media Committee promotes the use of online media by faculty and students to engage with other neuroscientists and the public online.  Since its start in 2009, the committee has developed a popular Twitter feed, a blog where students write lay-accessible summaries of original research, and workshops for neurosciences students and faculty like “Getting the Most out of #SfN12 with Twitter”. The New Media Committee leverages existing resources to produce and share diverse content such as well-informed discussions of neuroscience in the news, advocacy for science policy, and general news about neurosciences at UCSD.
