Researchers have identified neurons in the brains of praying mantises that are able to compute 3D direction and distance. The findings may help to develop better technology for machine and robotic vision.
A new, freely available computer platform creates a 3D model that brings together the macroscopic scale of tissue with the microscopic scale of individual cells. This allows the platform to realistically model brain cancer's mechanobiology while maintaining resolution power.

Findings will help pave the way for early intervention of eating disorders, researchers believe.
Researchers report children on the autism spectrum who experience specific phobias may benefit from immersive virtual reality therapy. The study reports immersive VR helped almost 45% of children with ASD remain free from their phobias six months after treatment.
Increased ceramide levels in the brain may be a unique feature of all types of Lewy body dementias, including LBD associated with Parkinson's disease.
Studying auditory regions and brain pathways in humans, apes, and monkeys, researchers have identified a language pathway that interconnects the auditory cortex with frontal lobe regions. The language pathway in other primates suggests an evolutionary basis in auditory cognition and vocal communication.
According to researchers, vision and brain circuits perform regular background scans, making neurons available for focus based tasks. The process makes it possible for us to pay, and maintain, attention.
According to researchers, reading with your preschool aged children can boost their language development by up to eight months. Receptive language skills are positively enhanced when a child reads along with a carer, the study reports.
