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.
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.
For those with a genetic predisposition to obesity, partaking in six specific types of exercise can help combat weight gain. Jogging, yoga, power walking, certain types of dancing and mountain climbing can help reduce BMI in those with a predisposition to obesity. Surprisingly, cycling, swimming, and games like Dance Dance Revolution did not counteract the genetic effects on obesity.
