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.
Researchers from the University of Plymouth have discovered the tole PrPC plays in the development of neurofibromatosis 2 tumors. According to the study, the prion protein is overproduced in schwannomas, compared with healthy Schwann cells. This overproduction is a result of Merlin deficiency and contributed to tumor growth in NF2 patients.
Regardless of where children come from, they will challenge their peers who break the rules. However, how they challenge rule-breakers varies between cultures.
The force by which a person embarks upon a utilitarian act may be predicted by psychopathic traits, a new study reports.
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.
Low-intensity transcranial ultrasound stimulation helps modulate brain activity and behaviors associated with a range of psychiatric disorders, a new study reports.
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.
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.
