Noninvasive Brain Imaging Shows Readiness of Trainees To Perform Operations

Study led by Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute faculty and graduate student shows that surgeons who trained on simulator had higher level of cortical activation and faster times for cutting tasks. While simulation platforms have been used to train surgeons before they enter an actual operating room (OR), few studies have evaluated how well trainees transfer those skills from the simulator to the OR.

Multiplayer video games: Researchers discover link between skill and intelligence

Researchers at the University of York have discovered a link between young people’s ability to perform well at two popular video games and high levels of intelligence. Studies carried out at the Digital Creativity Labs (DC Labs) at York found that some action strategy video games can act like IQ tests. The researchers’ findings are published today in the journal PLOS ONE.

Advanced artificial limbs mapped in the brain

EPFL scientists from the Center for Neuroprosthetics have used functional MRI to show how the brain re-maps motor and sensory pathways following targeted motor and sensory reinnervation (TMSR), a neuroprosthetic approach where residual limb nerves are rerouted towards intact muscles and skin regions to control a robotic limb.
