Researchers decipher the retina’s neural code for brain communication to create novel, more effective prosthetic retinal device for blindness.
Neuroscientists report that two major classes of brain cells repress neural activity in specific mathematical ways: One type subtracts from overall activation, while the other divides it.
By decoding brain activity, scientists were able to ‘see’ that 2 monkeys were planning to approach the same reaching task differently – even before they moved a muscle.
Dolphins blow bubble nets around schools of fish to help in hunting. Researchers may use the dolphin tactics to help make man-made sonar to detect targets such as mines in bubbly water.
Georgia Tech researchers have created a wireless, musical glove that may improve sensation and motor skills for people with paralyzing spinal cord injury (SCI).
