Content Block Plugins

Content Plugins

These plugins are the core building blocks for content that is added directly to the page (rather than linked to content types such as the Highlighted News plugin) or displayed dynamically via an app hook (such as Article pages).

Content Blocks

Column Block

This plugin is used to generate column layouts and creates a container for other plugins (usually Content Block plugins). Selecting a layout (a number of columns and the proportion of those columns) will generate enough Column plugins. If the plugin is editing to require more columns, these will be added. If a new layout is selected that has fewer columns, the existing columns will still exist, but only the number of columns in the layout will be displayed. This allows for content to be moved from the removed columns, it is not recommended to retain these columns. Column blocks may have an optional title.

Content Block

Content blocks are for basic text/media content. They may contain a title, rich text, and image or video. The block supports some basic layouts to prevent the need for Column Blocks. The "Media Placement" field determines the layout of the block. The "Media Theme" field determines if the image or video is wrapped in a bordering box. 

An optional CTA Button may be placed above, below or both. If a link and an image are set, the image will link to the URL as well (even if no buttons are displayed). 

Image Grid

This plugin provides for a group of images (logos, photos, etc.) to be displayed on the page. The layout of the grid is determined by the Image Columns and Image Alignment fields. The image size selection determines how images are resized from the original (or left at original size). Images are resized in proportion to the original image (except for the "thumbnail" setting which crops the images square for higher density. The Image Theme field determines if the image is displayed with a border/background on directly on the page.

Images are added separately using the media manager. Image order is determined by the "order" field (lowest to highest). Images may optionally link to either the original size image (if Link Source? is checked) or link to an internal or external link.

Profile Plugin

This plugin provides a special layout specific to people profiles. It contains most of the fields used for a Staff Member Profile. If an existing Staff Profile is selected, the content fields of the plugin will auto-populate when saved (changes to the original profile will not be reflected in the plugin, unless the plugin is resaved). If no profile is selected, the fields may be entered manually.

Background Plugins

Background Block

Similar to the Column Block, the Background Block creates a container for other content (either Content Blocks or Column Blocks). An image or a color may be used for the background. When selecting a color, either the current theme's light or dark color may be selected. The default text color may also be selected, if text become difficult to read with the selected background.

Christof Koch, Ph.D.

President & Chief Scientific Officer

Christof Koch joined the Allen Institute as Chief Scientific Officer in 2011 and became President in 2015. 

He received his baccalaureate from the Lycée Descartes in Rabat, Morocco, his M.S. in physics from the University of Tübingen in Germany and his Ph.D. from the Max-Planck-Institut für Biologische Kybernetik, Tübingen. Subsequently, he spent four years as a postdoctoral fellow in the Artificial Intelligence Laboratory and the Brain and Cognitive Sciences Department at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. From 1987 until 2013, he was a professor at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) in Pasadena, from his initial appointment as Assistant Professor, Division of Biology and Division of Engineering and Applied Sciences in 1986, to his final position as Lois and Victor Troendle Professor of Cognitive & Behavioral Biology. See here for Christof's academic pedigree and his students.

Koch has published extensively, and his writings and interests integrate theoretical, computational and experimental neuroscience. His most recent book, Consciousness: Confessions of a Romantic Reductionist, blends science and memoir to explore topics in discovering the roots of consciousness. Stemming in part from a long-standing collaboration with the late Nobel Laureate Francis Crick, Koch authored the book The Quest for Consciousness: A Neurobiological Approach. He has also authored the technical books Biophysics of Computation: Information Processing in Single Neurons and Methods in Neuronal Modeling: From Ions to Networks, and served as editor for several books on neural modeling and information processing. Koch’s research addresses scientific questions using a widely multidisciplinary approach.

His research interests include elucidating the biophysical mechanisms underlying neural computation, understanding the mechanisms and purpose of visual attention, and uncovering the neural basis of consciousness and the subjective mind.
