Researchers discuss different current neural network models and consider the steps that need to be taken to make them more realistic, and thus more useful, as possible.
Results show the blood-pressure-lowering effects of exercise were diminished by more than 60% over the first hour of recovery, and completely absent two hours post-exercise in those who used antibacterial mouthwash.
Spending time in nature can help reduce the strength and frequency of cravings.
Current fMRI tests designed to detect deception by looking at specific areas of the brain may be vulnerable to mental countermeasures. In order to improve reliability, researchers call for whole brain analysis, rather than just examining brain regions of interest.
A study of macaque monkeys reveals low-intensity ultrasound can both generate and suppress signalling in the brain and modulate normal function. The ultrasonic stimulation alters counterfactual thinking, allowing the ability to decide upon a better alternative in decision-making tasks.
A new study reports social robots may be good counselors. Researchers say the NAO robot is able to provide a helpful motivational interview, a technique used by counselors to support behavior change.
The force by which a person embarks upon a utilitarian act may be predicted by psychopathic traits, a new study reports.
