Featured

Featured articles can cover neuroscience, brain research, regenerative medicine, psychology, genetics, robotics, neurology and many other cognitive science topics. Featured neuroscience articles are articles that we believe to be very important, or that our readers will most likely want to read. Featured articles usually include an image and tend to be shared more across the social networks.

AI helps predict heart attacks and stroke

Using AI technology to analyze CMR scans, researchers were able to precisely quantify the blood flow to the heart muscles of patients. Comparing the AI-generated blood flow results with health outcomes, the team found those with reduced blood flow were at increased risk of stroke, heart attacks, and heart failure. The machine-learning algorithm was able to predict which patients may die or suffer major adverse health events better than doctors could.... Read More...

Designing artificial brains can help us learn more about real ones

The lessons learned from developing artificial intelligence networks can help guide researchers down the path of understanding the brain as a computational system rather than a collection of cells. AI technology can help take exploring the human brain, behavior and neurodegenerative diseases to an entirely new level.... Read More...

Researchers were not right about left brains

Brain imprints on cranial bones from humans and great apes refute the long-standing belief that the human pattern of brain asymmetry is unique. Researchers noted similar patterns of asymmetry in our great ape ancestors. However, there was more variability in this pattern in humans. Findings suggest lateralized and uniquely human cognitive abilities, such as language, evolved by adapting an ancestral brain asymmetry pattern.... Read More...
