air pollutionBabies Exposed to High Air Pollution Have Structural Changes to Their Brain at Age 12

Significant early childhood exposure to traffic-related air pollution (TRAP) is associated with structural changes in the brain at the age of 12. Nextbigfuture believes this research is saying that there is some degree of long term brain damage or brain …

brainBrain Barriers Breached to Attack Tumors

The brain has barriers to protect itself from bacteria and other pathogens but if infections and diseases get past those barriers then the immune system is also kept out. Yale researchers have found a way to get immune system rescuers …

artificial intelligenceFirst as Artificial Neurons Developed for Medical Implants

Artificial neurons on silicon chips that behave just like the real thing have been invented by scientists – a first-of-its-kind achievement with enormous scope for medical devices to cure chronic diseases, such as heart failure, Alzheimer’s, and other diseases of …

brainHuman Non-Invasive Direct Brain-to-Brain Communication for Group Problem-Solving

BrainNet is the first multi-person non-invasive direct brain-to-brain interface for collaborative problem-solving. The interface combines electroencephalography (EEG) to record brain signals and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to deliver information noninvasively to the brain. The interface allows three human subjects to …
