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.
Researchers discuss different current neural network models and consider the steps that need to be taken to make them more realistic, and thus more useful, as possible.

Artificial neural networks help researchers uncover new clues as to why people on the autism spectrum have trouble interpreting facial expressions.
Physical exercise was associated with more efficiently organized, robust, and flexible networks in the preteen brain.
Self-reported cognitive decline was associated with altered functional connectivity in the hippocampus and dorsal anterior insular, a new study reports.
When reading, people are not only able to predict the next word, but also the words' grammatical properties. This allows us to read faster. The findings could help with the development of new neural networks focused on natural language processing.
A brain network consisting of the thalamus, anterior and posterior cingulate cortex, and angular gyri was implicated in the loss, and return, of consciousness under both anesthetic and natural sleep.
