Studying rats in a virtual reality maze, researchers discover certain hippocampal neurons play a vital role in a specific mechanism of navigation.
Researchers created a form of artificial vision for a blind woman with the aid of a brain implant position in the visual cortex. The results pave the way for the creation of visual brain prosthetics to help the blind to regain sight.
A new, improved DBS technique that targets specific subpopulations of neurons in the globus pallidus with short bursts of stimulation shows promising results as a treatment for Parkinson’s disease.
RAGE-Control, a video game system that utilizes biofeedback to regulate heart rate, reduces stress, oppositional behavior, and aggression by training children to stay calm during stressful and frustrating situations.
A modified deep brain stimulation devise that delivers on-demand stimulation when it recognizes changes in brain patterns provides immediate and long-term relief for depression sufferers.
Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) applied to the left prefrontal cortex can improve episodic memory performance by reducing the power of low frequency of brain waves during memory formation.
Immersive virtual reality could disrupt a child’s default coordination strategy, researchers report.
A newly developed augmented reality smartphone app may help reduce the fear of spiders for arachnophobes.
A newly developed two-minute EEG test effectively picks up on early memory impairments associated with Alzheimer’s disease.
A new study shows how sophisticated social awareness in children can be in the transference of behavior.
A transcranial magnetic stimulation study revealed the motor cortex may play a role in translating foreign language words into one’s native tongue.
Engineers have created a new robot that models the mechanics of the strong punch of the mantis shrimp.
Reduced activity in the prefrontal cortex during virtual reality creative self-expression tasks indicates an enhanced relaxation response.
Novel AI technology allows researchers to understand which brain regions directly interact with each other, which helps guide the placement of electrodes for DBS to treat neurological diseases.
Researchers report self-perception does not diminish nor does an individual’s personality change as a result of closed-loop brain stimulation brain implants for the treatment of epilepsy.
The cognitive map allows people to compute on the fly with limited information to solve abstract problems.
A newly developed bionic arm combines motor control with touch and hand movement sensations, allowing those with upper-arm amputations to behave and react as though they haven’t lost their limb.
The gaze of a humanoid robot influences the way people react to social decision-making tasks.
Researchers have discovered a new molecule that could increase the ultra-fast decision-making capabilities of computers. The simple molecule provides a new electronic circuit element in which complex logic is encoded in nanoscale material properties.
A new study examines people’s responses to cloned faces, which could soon be the norm for humanized robots.
