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.

Scientists discover nature's algorithm for intelligence

Scientists discover nature's algorithm for intelligence Throughout the ages, one old chestnut has stubbornly resisted yielding up its secret: the organizational principle behind the human brain.Joe Tsien, think they may be onto the answer with a recent paper published in the journal Frontiers in Systems Neuroscience.

The brains of astronauts change during spaceflight

The brains of astronauts change during spaceflight At the dawn of human spaceflight, we weren’t even sure people would be able to eat in space.Today, we’ve moved on to bigger questions like, “what happens to your brain in space?

Studying brain waves while watching trailers can help predict a film’s success

Studying brain waves while watching trailers can help predict a film’s success An experiment at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management may have cracked the best way to do this: By literally reading moviegoers’ brain waves.While they were being observed in this way, they were then shown trailers for various movies, while scientists noted their engagement levels.

E-reader Sales Slack as Paper Books Reclaim Market Share

E-reader Sales Slack as Paper Books Reclaim Market Share Recent data from the Publisher’s Association indicate a major market trend back toward treeware, as ebook and e-reader sales continue to slump from their 2011 peak.It’s not clear whether the enduring popularity of tablets might be responsible for some of this change; if tablets have usurped some e-reader market share, that could explain things.

DARPA Picks Dream Teams to Develop Wireless Brain Interface

DARPA Picks Dream Teams to Develop Wireless Brain Interface Last summer we reported on a new project called the Neural Engineering System Design (NESD), brought to you by the acronym-happy spooks at DARPA.The project is to create an implantable, wireless, wideband brain-computer interface capable of reading from neurons as well as “writing” to them by sending signals that the neurons accept.
