A significant number of people feel their thoughts take on the form of an inner voice, a new study reports.
A new wireless intracortical brain-computer interface neuroprosthesis is capable of gathering and transmitting accurate neural signals, using a tenth of the power required by current wire-enabled systems.
Researchers have discovered a brain-based marker for new thoughts, reporting people experience more than 6,000 thoughts per day. The study reports a new method that can detect indirectly when one thought ends and another begins.
Having identified a new, simpler way to study neural activity, researchers believe they are on track to creating a compact, low power and potentially wireless brain sensor that could make thought-controlled prosthetic limbs ubiquitous.
Problems with counterfactive interpretation in those with aphasia are associated with a reduction of propositional, lexical and syntactic cognition.
Researchers propose a new theory of human thinking, suggesting our brain's navigation system is key to thinking. This may explain why our knowledge seems to be organized in spatial fashion.
A new approach may lead to a better understanding of how we learn and how addictions develop.
