Human cortical networks have evolved a novel neural network that relies on abundant connections between inhibitory interneurons.
Researchers propose a new framework for three seemingly unconnected forms of creativity.
Information about new experiences is retained by being tied to pre-existing activity patterns in the brain. Memory is acquired when the patterns are connected to each other across brain regions via transient bursts of activity.
Researchers have developed a new AI algorithm that prevents smart devices such as Alexa or Siri from correctly hearing your words 80% of the time. The algorithm is a step toward providing personal agency in protecting the privacy of their voice in the presence of smart devices.
A new computational method sheds light on the intricacies of brain structure and function.
The propensity to believe in conspiracy theories may be a result of genetic determination, cognitive capacity, and affective reactions. Researchers found the representation of memes acts as neural network attractor states in the brain, linking them with the formation of conspiracy theories.
Brain activity during conscious wakefulness presents large integrated and dynamic network modules which fragment during sleep.
Newly developed brain organoids grown from stem cells showed organized waves of neural activity similar to that seen in living human brains.
