"Neurograins" brain-computer interfaces independently record electrical impulses and send signals wirelessly to a central hub that coordinates and processes the signals.
Reward does not improve visual perception learning unless it is followed by a good night's sleep.
During non-REM sleep, visual areas of the brain exhibit an excitation/inhibition balance indicative of increased plasticity. REM sleep appears to be essential for people to reap the benefits of the increased plasticity that occurs during NREM sleep.

Researchers have created a deep learning algorithm that can be tricked by optical illusions, just like humans. The findings shed new light on the human visual system and may help improve artificial vision.
Unexpected rewards boost memories of specific events. The findings may have implications for treating memory problems associated with depression.
Researchers report our ability to identify and categorize visual information is an active process similar to memory stabilization.
We end up conveying information at about the same rate, regardless of whether we speak slowly or fast, a new study reports.
