Lobachevsky University researchers are developing a neurochip that could be used to replace damaged areas of the brain. Researchers report initial experiments have been successful in using this neurotechnology to transmit signals from artificial to real neurons.
Smartphone and internet addiction appears to have an impact on brain chemistry. A new study reports the ratio of GABA to Glx is significantly increased in the anterior cingulate cortex of teens who are addicted to their smartphones.
Researchers look at the impact smartphone use and technology is having on teen mental health.
Researchers have developed a new microscope which is optimized to perform studies using optogenetic techniques.
An international team of researchers have created remote controlled nanobots from a biodegradable material that they believe could assist doctors in diagnosing diseases and delivering drugs to target sites.
Today the Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development (GO-Biz) announced the formation of a new Cyber-Health Information Technology Advisory Board as part of an ongoing effort to support cybersecurity innovation and bolster advanced technology industries.
Following targeted motor and sensory reinnervation, a procedure that reroutes residual limb nerves to intact muscles and skin in amputees, the brain remaps both motor and sensory pathways. Additionally, researchers note, TMSR may help counteract poorly adapted cortical plasticity following amputation.
Researchers have created a convolutional neural network to better understand how the brain processes movies of natural scenes. This may be the first step in helping scientists decode how the brain makes sense of dynamic visual surroundings.
