Transcranial vagus nerve stimulation could significantly improve a person's ability to learn the sounds of a new language. The non-invasive stimulation technique could have positive implications for boosting other types of learning also.
Machine learning algorithm allows a brain-computer interface to readjust itself continually in the background to ensure the system is always calibrated and ready to use.
A new COVID-19 vaccine produces antibodies specific to SARS-CoV-2 at quantities believed sufficient for neutralizing the virus, a mouse model study reveals. The new vaccine using an innovative microneedle array on fingertip-sized pads, which increases the vaccine potency.
The fetal gut has far better developed immune capabilities than previously thought. The findings could help develop new maternal vaccines and provide early insight into potential autoimmune disorders, which may occur later in life.
Gene expression rhythms in the brains of those with schizophrenia are highly disrupted a new study reports. The expression of genes is significantly different in those with schizophrenia who died at night compared to the general population. The findings provide new insight into a potential mechanism that underlies gene expression in the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex in those with schizophrenia.
Learning a new skill may involve the generation of new neural activity patterns.
Responsive neurostimulation can remodel neural networks, leaving the brain less susceptible to epileptic seizures.
According to a new study, negative interactions on social media may increase feelings of loneliness and social isolation in young adults.
