Relating machine learning to biological learning, researchers say while the two approaches aren't interchangeable, they can be harnessed to offer insights into how the human brain works.
Evaluating the brains of modern physicists, researchers shed light on how the brain organizes highly abstract scientific concepts.

A new AI algorithm can independently discover and categorize an animal's behavior by analyzing patterns of body movements.
Alterations in internal states can influence how behavior improves with learning.
In the age of COVID lockdowns, video conferencing has become the norm for people connecting with family and conducting business meetings. A new study reveals video conferencing can reduce collective intelligence as the virtual meetings can lead to more unequal contributions by some to conversations and disrupt vocal synchrony.
Eight sessions of mindfulness-based awareness training give participants a significant edge in their ability to control brain-computer interfaces and the time it took to achieve proficiency over those who did not experience meditation training.
Animals slowly shift their likelihood of detecting stimulus changes over ten minutes. Researchers found the activity of neural populations from the V4 visual area and prefrontal cortex slowly drifted together with the behavioral fluctuations. The slow drift acts as an impulsivity signal.
