Researchers have developed a new, non surgical method to manipulate brain circuitry. The technique uses sound waves in combination with small bubble injections into the blood stream that temporarily opens the blood-brain barrier.
Social experience appears to be key for the development of separate, sex-specific neural populations and expression of aggression in male mice, a new study reveals.
A new artificial neural network can assess a viewer's reaction to movies based on patterns of facial expressions. With enough information, researchers say the ANN will be able to assess how an audience is reacting to a movie and predict an individual's response based on a few minutes of observation.
