Researchers were able to restore the sense of touch to a 28-year-old who suffered a spinal cord injury with the help of new brain-computer interface technology.
Researchers electronically linked the brains of pairs of rats for the first time, enabling them to communicate directly to solve simple behavioral puzzles. A further test of this work successfully linked the brains of two animals thousands of miles apart - one in Durham, N.C., and one in Natal, Brazil.
Researchers have been able to link the brains of primates and the brains of rodents, allowing the animals to exchange motor and sensory information to control movement or complete computations in real time.
According to a new study, the brain plans multiple actions simultaneously prior to selecting one action to execute.
Alterations in internal states can influence how behavior improves with learning.
Researchers shed light on why deep sleep is important for learning efficiency in the brain.
A new study reveals how tactile experiences are encoded in the brain as we sleep.
A new study suggests early musical training has a significant effect on the development of the brain. Practicing instruments before the age of seven boosts the normal maturation of connections between motor and sensory regions of the brain, researchers suggest.
