Artificial intelligence technology redesigned a bacterial protein that helps researchers track serotonin in the brain in real time.
A new computational algorithm shows how the brain maintains information in the short term using specific types of neurons.
A new AI model mimics how the prefrontal cortex uses gating to control information flow between different areas of neurons. The system could help in the development of new artificial intelligence technologies that better mimic the human brain.
Testing multiple computational models of the nervous system, researchers discover that just because a model can make accurate predictions about data, this doesn't always translate into the underlying logic of the biological system it represents.
A new computational model predicts how information deep inside the brain could flow from one network to another, and how neural network clusters can self optimize over time.
Summary: An artificial neural network has identified a potential mechanism for the impaired decision-making often seen in schizophrenia patients, which involves the reduced activity of NMDA receptors.
Study combines developmental neurobiology and computational neuroscience to explore the dynamic changes of gene expression at the single-cell level as progenitor cells differentiate into neurons, then diversify into different sensory neurons.
AI network simulations become unstable following continuous periods of unsupervised learning. When the networks were exposed to states that are analogous to human brain waves during sleep, the stability was restored.
Using computational methods, researchers created artificial proteins that triggered immune responses and produced infection specific antibodies. The findings indicate it will be possible to design vaccines that contain artificial antibodies, expediting the process of vaccine development.
New model reveals the aerosolized particles carrying the coronavirus can remain in the air longer than was previously suggested. Researchers modeled a scenario where an infected person coughs in a supermarket aisle and takes into consideration in-store ventilation systems. The model revealed the aerosol-cloud containing COVID-19 spreads outside the immediate vicinity of the coughing person and dilutes in the process, but the dilution occurs over several minutes.
Computational model provides caregivers and doctors a better understanding of the potential outcomes for a young child who suffers from a head injury as a result of abuse.
