Using a Siamese neural network, a new deep learning system dubbed Ghostwriter is able to distinguish the writing styles between different texts. The algorithm compares a student's current written work against past examples of their prose, providing a percentage score for similar writing styles. The new system could be used to determine if a student has plagiarized their work, or if it is an original piece.
Researchers have identified a common denominator for 'dark' personality traits they have dubbed the D-factor. D-factor, researchers report, can be defined as the general tendency to maximize personal goals and interests over those of another, often to the extent of taking pleasure in hurting others.
Inhibitory neurons in the spinal cord lose their connections to motor neurons in mouse models of ALS. While no connection between this deterioration to the development of ALS has been made, researchers say the loss of inhibitory signals could explain why motor neurons die in those with ALS.
University of Copenhagen researchers have identified two areas of the midbrain that appear to play specific roles in the start, speed and content of dependent selection of locomotion in mice.
Beta2-adrenergic receptors in brown fat cells are responsible for stimulating thermogenesis.
Noradrenaline, a stress-related neurotransmitter, may cause you to wake at night but researchers say it's a normal part of a good night's sleep.
Ethnicity may play a role in the perception of bitter tastes, a new study reports. Researchers say this could be related to anatomical differences on the surface of the tongue.
Study reveals vitamin B12 deficiency doesn't just lead to anemia in children, it also hinders brain development and motor function.
