Maternal obesity may hinder their child's brain development as soon as the second trimester of pregnancy. High maternal BMI is associated with changes to the child's prefrontal cortex and anterior insula, two brain areas associated with decision making, and behavior.
Obesity and higher body mass are linked to decreased cerebral blood flow. Lower cerebral blood flow is associated with an increased risk of Alzheimer's disease and a range of psychiatric disorders.
Researchers reduced the power requirements of neural interfaces while improving their accuracy by tuning into a subset of brain waves.
Researchers were able to restore the sense of touch to a 28-year-old who suffered a spinal cord injury with the help of new brain-computer interface technology.
Machine learning algorithm allows a brain-computer interface to readjust itself continually in the background to ensure the system is always calibrated and ready to use.

Researchers have created a hybrid neural network where biological and artificial neurons in different parts of the world were able to communicate via the internet through a hub of memristive synapses.
Applying a nonlinear signal processing method to experimental data, a new study reveals a connection between motor behavior and brain activity. The findings could help with the development of new brain-computer interfaces and artificial intelligence technologies.
Neural activity patterns for limb movements remain stable over time. Researchers were able to record, decode, and reconstruct activity patterns from common movement skills. The findings could have immediate implications for the development of neuroprosthetics that can bypass brain injuries by inferring intended motor actions from a person's brain.
A bilateral implant and brain-machine interface technology allowed a patient with a high spinal cord injury to control prosthetic arms with the power of thought.
Researchers have developed a new brain-machine interface headset that harnesses the power of machine learning to allow those with disabilities to maneuver their wheelchair with thought alone.
Study reveals a link between obesity and chronic diarrhea, independent of lifestyle, diet, and other medical conditions. Those who are obese are 60% more likely to experience bouts of chronic diarrhea. A possible explanation could be the link between obesity and low-grade inflammation, which may trigger diarrhea more frequently.
