Researchers have developed a novel hybrid machine learning approach to muscle gesture recognition in prosthetic arms.
It is well documented that animals perk up their ears when they hear a noise that captures their attention. A new study reveals humans also do the same. Researchers demonstrated humans make small, unconscious movements of their ears directed toward a sound that sparks attention.
It is well documented that professional boxing causes neurological impairment. A new study reveals routine sparring can cause short term impairments in brain-muscle communication and a decrease in memory performance.
A new technology for decoding neuromuscular signals may help make prosthetic hands easier for patients to use, researchers report.
Immune system activation that occurs as result of infection shortly after birth can cause persistent sleep pattern changes and neurodevelopmental disorders, a new study reveals.
A new study reports the vocal muscles of Bengalese finches change function to help produce different parameters of sounds, much like an opera singer.
Neuroscientists found that astrocytes may be responsible for the rapid improvement in mood in depressed patients after acute sleep deprivation. This study identified how astrocytes can regulate a neurotransmitter involved in sleep.
