A new machine-learning algorithm is more accurate at determining personality traits based on selfie photographs than humans are.
Study reveals anesthesia activated neurons have been discovered in the hypothalamus. Activation of AANs promotes slow-wave sleep, extending the effects of anesthesia, while inhibition of AANs shortens the duration of general anesthetics and disrupts natural sleep.
Researchers report they have successfully and immediately restored volitional movement in two paralyzed people with the help of spinal cord stimulation. Additionally, the stimulation helped to reduce hypotension in the patients.
