Researchers develop a framework to show how neuroprosthetics can be used as a tool for examining how and where the brain encodes new information.
A new machine-learning algorithm has uncovered new neural mechanisms and enhanced the decoding of behaviors directly from brain signaling data.
Using mini-brains grown in the lab, researchers have discovered schizophrenia likely begins toward the end of the first trimester of fetal development. Researchers believe, based on their findings, schizophrenia could potentially be treated in utero.
Researchers have given rats the ability to "touch" infrared light by fitting them with an infrared detector wired to microscopic electrodes implanted in the part of the mammalian brain that processes tactile information. The study demonstrated that a novel sensory input could be processed by a cortical region specialized in another sense without "hijacking" the function of this brain area.

A Neuron study reports brain machine interface technology may shed light on how mentally running through a routine improves performance.
While being overweight may be bad for your general health, researchers discovered an association with higher body mass index (BMI) and a reduced risk of developing ALS. Those with a BMI considered to be in the obese range had a 31% reduced risk of developing ALS, while those considered overweight had an 18% lower risk.
A new study reports there are nine potentially modifiable risk factors that may contribute to a significant number of Alzheimer's disease cases worldwide.
Millions of people suffering from multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's, muscular dystrophy, spinal cord injuries or amputees could soon interact with their computers and surroundings using just their eyes, thanks to a new device that costs less than £40 (~$63).
