analogSuperconducting Synapse many times faster than human synapses could enable faster artificial brains

No Comments
Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have built a superconducting switch that “learns” like a biological system and could connect processors and store memories in future computers operating like the human brain. Above – Illustrations showing …

brainBenefits of clot removal for strokes extended to 24 hours

No Comments
When treating stroke victims, time is of the essence. Doctors may have more time than previously thought. In many cases, surgeons can save brain tissue that’s on the brink of death by removing clots in the brain. That treatment option …

Nature Materials – SiGe epitaxial memory for neuromorphic computing with reproducible high performance based on engineered dislocations Although several types of architecture combining memory cells and transistors have been used to demonstrate artificial synaptic arrays, they usually present limited scalability …

brainNissan unveils Brain to Car communication technology for half second faster controls

No Comments
Nissan unveiled research today that will enable vehicles to interpret signals from the driver’s brain, redefining how people interact with their cars. The company’s Brain-to-Vehicle, or B2V, technology promises to speed up reaction times for drivers and will lead to …

brainEmpowering the Mind to Heal the Brain for Stroke

No Comments
The capability to “decode the brain” now makes thought-controlled machines a reality. Even more fundamentally theses brain computer interfaces empower the mind to now heal the physical substance of the brain after stroke. The Neurolution laboratory has created brain computer …

brainEvery nerve cell of a zebrafish’s brain monitored at the same time to identify alertness neurons

10 Comments
Stanford researchers were able to simultaneously monitor activity in every nerve cell of a zebrafish’s brain and determine which types of neurons were tied to alertness. Previously it was believed that there was a single alertness on/off switch but they …

brainBreakthrough Gel for growing large quantities of neural stem cells

No Comments
There is a solution to the dual challenges of growing and preserving neural stem cells in a state where they are still able to mature into many different cell types. The first challenge is that growing stem cells in quantity …

brainDARPA Brain Stimulation can accelerate learning by 40%, know why it works, could be common by 2023

12 Comments
HRL Laboratories, LLC, researchers have determined how non-invasive transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) could increase performance of associative learning. The researchers found that when applied to the prefrontal cortex, tDCS affects a wide portion of the brain, causing changes in …
