A new study of over 10,000 mothers has shown that women who breastfed their babies were at significantly lower risk of postnatal depression than those who did not.
Neuroscientist V.S Ramachandran has been named Scientist of the Year by the ARCS Foundation.
Researchers show optogenetics can be as good as, if not better than, using electrical stimulation in neuroscience research.
Researchers restored behavior in a rat model of TBI using a neuroprosthetic device.
Researchers identify safe, pleasant smelling compounds which keep mosquitoes at bay and help control the spread of diseases.
Researchers discover some crocodiles use lures to hunt their pray, suggesting they are cleverer than previously believed.
A new report urges clear standards and uniform protocols to be developed for declaring a patient brain dead.
Unexpected behavior in ferroelectric materials explored by researchers supports a new approach to information storage and processing known as memcomputing.
The Never Ending Image Learner (NEIL) computer program is able to label images and learn associations with little human intervention.
Advances in robotics have made it possible to create artificial legs that can duplicate the natural movement of human legs. The research could help improve the mobility of lower-limb amputees.
Using eye tracking, researchers discover children who later go on to be diagnosed with Autism showed declining attention to other people's eyes from the age of two months.
A new brain inspired device, which learns while it computes, could take parallel computing into a new era of ultra efficient high performance.
The NRI is providing researchers with a $3.6 million grant to help develop a new kind of machine intelligence for surgical robotics.
The NIH has awarded three projects $2.4 million over the next five years to develop innovative robots which work cooperatively with people and adapt to changing environments. The robotics will improve human capabilities and enhance medical procedures.
The NIH is awarding researchers $18.8 million to help support global research into concussions and TBI.
