A new AI system may shed light on how and when humans begins to use different information processing resources.
The inferior temporal cortex is capable of performing tasks, such as distinguishing between real and nonsense words and picking out specific letters from words.
A novel probe for fMRI traces connections between neurons, helping researchers map brain circuits that underlie behavior and perception.
In both aging human and mouse experiments, researchers identified a link between the MEF2 gene and cognitive resilience. Findings suggest enhancing MEF2 activity could protect the brain against age-related dementia.
A new neuron labeling technique allows researchers to obtain a snapshot of their activity at any moment in time. The new approach could provide new insights into neural functioning by offering better precision than current, more long term, labeling techniques.
MIT researchers report mothers who contract severe infections during pregnancy face higher autism risks in their children. However, ASD risks could be reduced by blocking the function of certain strains of bacteria found in the mother's gut.
Researchers have developed a new neural interface that is able to relay commands from the central nervous system to a robotic prosthesis.
Reconnecting muscle pairs during surgery following amputation provides patients more sensory feedback from the limb, researchers report.
