Understanding Brains in the Second Machine Age
Neuroscience in it’s many forms is playing a central role in the second machine age, especially as it relates to the development of artificial intelligence. There is an interesting dance between the fields of artificial intelligence and human neuroscience where each is informing the other. This department tracks the dance.
A team of scientists from the University of Chicago designed a way to use microscopic capsules made out of DNA to deliver a payload of tiny molecules directly into a cell.
MIT engineers have now devised a way to automate the process of recording electrical signals from inside a neuron, using a computer algorithm that analyzes microscope images and guides a robotic arm to the target cell.
Researchers at Washington State University (WSU) say they have developed an algorithm that can map brain neural networks with close to human-level accuracy.
Imperial scientists have successfully taught robots to perform a challenging brain technique only previously mastered by a handful of humans.
Artificial neural networks decode brain activity during performed and imagined movements.
A UTA researcher is developing a technology that will map and image the effects of infrared light shone on the human brain that may be able to modulate and improve brain waves and circuits at certain spots in the brain.
Researchers at the University of California San Diego have developed a new way to record neural activity in the brain by combining macro-scale electrophysiology with micro-scale optical imaging. The combination of the two recording modalities will provide temporal and...
Researchers at the University of Alabama at Birmingham suggest that brainwave-sensing headsets, also known as EEG or electroencephalograph headsets, need better security after a study reveals hackers could guess a user’s passwords by monitoring their brainwaves. EEG...
A newly-developed hands-free musical instrument now allows people to make music with their minds.
Researchers at the University of Cambridge have designed antibodies that target the protein deposits in the brain associated with Alzheimer’s disease, and stop their production.
