A new micro-grid recording device allowed researchers to measure hippocampal activity in epileptic patients. They found brain waves travel back and forth across the brain structure, integrating messages from different areas of the brain.
A new study reveals the unique “time compression” effect of virtual reality technology.
A new brain-computer interface could help thousands of people with neurodegenerative disorders and spinal cord injuries the ability to regain communication skills. The BCI, in combination with a machine learning algorithm, can generate words on a scree…
Phase precession plays a critical role in the human brain. Not only does it link sequential positions, but it also plays a role in abstract progression to a specific goal.
A new wireless, battery-less brain implant that harnesses optogenetics can manipulate social interactions in mice.
A new neuroimaging technique captures the brain in motion in real-time, generating a 3D view and with improved detail. The new technology could help clinicians to spot hard-to-detect neurological conditions.
People who were touched by conversational humanoid robots report positive emotional states and were more likely to comply with requests made by the robot.
Researchers apply DOT neuroimaging to patients receiving repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) for depression to better understand the effectiveness of the brain stimulation for the treatment of the disorder.
Help may be at hand to assist those with trichotillomania from pulling their hair. A new glove sensor has been developed by students that tracks hand motion and flexing, relaying the information to a smartphone app. The glove is able to sense when a ha…
A new digital app has shown to be successful in detecting one key symptom associated with ASD in young children. The app, which combines gaze tracking and machine learning algorithms, could be an inexpensive new tool to help with the diagnosis of autism.
Light therapy which consists of exposure to both controlled natural light and artificial lighting may be a new tool in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.
Researchers investigate why feminine robots and AI systems, such as Siri and Alexa, are considered to be more humanistic than their male counterparts.
Computer-generated, or virtual humans, prove to be just as good as humans in helping people practice leadership skills.
A newly developed ion pump can deliver cancer-fighting drugs more accurately, and with fewer side effects than conventional chemotherapy, to those with glioblastoma brain cancer.
Researchers report they have successfully translated the structure of a spider’s web into music. The new study could provide new avenues for the development of 3D printing technologies and novel musical compositions. The findings also shed light on cro…
A newly developed reparative hydrogel, which researchers are dubbing “brain glue”, protects against loss of brain tissue following a TBI and can aid in functional neural repair.
Alterations in internal states can influence how behavior improves with learning.
The BrainGate brain-machine interface is able to transmit signals from a single neuron resolution with full broadband fidelity without physically tethering the user to a decoding system.
An experimental twist on a classic cochlear implant allows researchers to directly measure brain waves and assess how good, or bad, a person’s hearing is.
Interaction between auditory areas of the brain and the reward system drive pleasure when we listen to music.
