Human brain inspires new type of AI

Recent experiments on neuronal cultures, as within the human brain, have led to researchers running large scale simulations which have shown that ultrafast artificial intelligence algorithms can be developed.

Magnets aid AI achieve efficiency of the human brain

Scientists have developed a new way to improve the efficiency of artificial intelligence, edging it closer to the capabilities of the human brain. This development involves the use of magnets.

Scientists discover brain 10 times more powerful than thought

New York - Between Internet social technology and other complexities of life in the 21st century, it’s easy to complain of information overload.

New study says some abilities may improve as we grow older

Researchers from MIT and Massachusetts General Hospital have found that though some brain functions deteriorate with age, there are others that seem to peak as we grow older.

Study maps how brain processes fear

A study published in the journal Brain and Cognition, coming from the Center for BrainHealth at The University of Texas at Dallas shows how brain activity occurs when a subject experiences fear.

Mind-mapping helmet Kickstarter launched

Brooklyn - Brooklyn start-up DuKorp has proposed a helmet that reads your moods and uses your feelings to give you better biking routes. They recently launched a Kickstarter to get this unconventional idea ready.

IBM new computing architecture based on human brain

A video game helps scientists understand the human brain

Many gamers are not neuroscientists, but there is a computer game that allows one to reconstruct a neural circuit of a mouse’s retina. It is actually not as difficult and boring as it may seem.

Sharpen your mind through violent video games

Rochester - Violent video games make us smarter by improving brain function. Neuroscientist Daphne Bavelier has been studying how and why this is the case. One way she does this is by investigating how video games can be used to improve brain function.

BigBrain: An ultra-high resolution 3D model of the human brain

A group of neuroscientists using a tool called a microtome, have sliced the postmoterm brain of a 65 year old woman preserved in paraffin wax into about 7,400 sections each 20 microns thick and used it to create the most detailed map yet of a human brain.

A remote-controlled helicopter powered by human thought

Earlier this week, a remote-controlled helicopter was flown through a college gym in Minnesota, navigated by the human brain.

Study: Psychopaths' brains differ in structure, function

Scientists from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the University of New Mexico and The Mind Research Network found Images of psychopathic prisoners' brains showed less connectivity, suggesting neurological causes for antisocial behavior.

Has the human brain reached its limit of understanding?

Britain’s Astronomer Royal, Lord Rees, has said the human brain may have reached its capacity for understanding, and there are some major problems we may never be able to resolve.

Are you in two minds about something? No coincidence, because you’ve actually got two

There are two decision making functions in the human brain. There’s the prehistoric, fast thinking, not very accurate one, and the “reasoning, intelligent” one. The ancient one is for emergencies. The other one was probably on special somewhere.

Op-Ed: Brainy art inside a Michelangelo classic
