Scientists invent machine that can (sort of) read your mind

Neuroscientists have devised a way for an fMRI to read a person’s mind… sort of.The process of recreating faces from brain activity started with a training phase.

Brain training is nothing more than a placebo: study

This is the basis of the brain training industry, but they’re already known for playing fast and loose with the science.Both groups of 25 volunteers (the same number used in many of the brain training studies) took a standardized test before and after playing a brain training game for an hour.

Scientists develop a memristor that can be conditioned just like a real synapse

Scientists develop a memristor that can be conditioned just like a real synapse The memristor is made of a silicon-oxygen-nitrogen material laced with clumps of silver nanoparticles at the electrical terminals.When current is applied across the memristor, the silver nanoparticles shuffle around within their parent oxynitride matrix, to line up within a lightning-bolt-like path of least electrical resistance.

Brain implant used to restore paralyzed man’s sense of touch

Brain implant used to restore paralyzed man’s sense of touch In a new study, doctors have used a brain implant to return the sense of touch to a paralyzed man.By placing electrodes inside Copeland’s brain, doctors have basically created a new path for the electrical impulses associated with the sense of touch.
