Purdue researchers create an organismoid that can mimic some aspects of human thought, specifically the ability to retain important information and forget unimportant memories.
People tend to think voice-user AI interfaces such as Siri or Alexa are more competent and emotionally engaging if they exhibit social cues.
Axon myelination is significantly disrupted in patients with Alzheimer's disease. Researchers also found brain cells of men and women vary significantly in how their genes respond to the neurodegenerative disease.
Researchers report synchrony of brain waves within three regions of the brain can 'break down' when visual working memory load becomes too extensive to handle.
The fusiform face area, an area of the visual cortex responsible for facial processing, develops much earlier than previously believed.
Researchers have created a comprehensive atlas of cell types in the brain's cerebrovascular system.
Researchers propose a new theory of memory formation, reporting memory storage does not rely on the strengthening of connection between memory cells, but on the pattern of connections that form within the first few minutes of an event.
Researchers have developed a new probe that can induce blood flow changes that allows for neuroimaging without the use of radioactive labels.
