Boston Scientific won FDA approval for its Vercise Deep Brain Stimulation System for treatment of Parkinson’s. The implantable stimulator can be programmed in a variety of ways to target different regions of the subthalamic nucleus. This may help to reduce the symptoms of Parkinson’s by delivering therapy in an optimal way for each patient. The […]
Deep learning has brought about machines that can 'see' the world more like humans can, and recognize language. And while deep learning was inspired by the human brain, the question remains: Does the brain actually learn this way? The answer has the potential to create more powerful artificial intelligence and unlock the mysteries of human intelligence.
(Canadian Institute for Advanced Research) Researchers unveiled an algorithm that simulates how deep learning could work in our brains. The network shows that certain mammalian neurons have the shape and electrical properties that are well-suited for deep learning.
Infervision, the medtech company which uses Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning to improve medical image analysis and significantly speed radiologists’ reading of scans and X-rays, today is launching a artificial intelligence (AI) platform to help radiologists diagnose strokes quickly using CT brain scans.

(University of Iowa Health Care) A multidisciplinary neuroscience study using rare, intraoperative brain recordings suggests that low frequency stimulation of a deep brain region may be able to improve cognitive function in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD). Show More Summary
Nikon announced the release of a new objective for biological microscopes, the CFI90 20XC Glyc, designed for deep imaging of whole, cleared tissues such as the brains. Nikon’s new CFI90 20XC Glyc.. The post Nikon CFI90 20XC Glyc objective for biological microscopes supports whole brain imaging appeared first on Gadgets, gizmos, and tech from the East.
Sensory, motor and cognitive operations involve the coordinated action of large neuronal populations across multiple brain regions in both superficial and deep structures. Existing extracellular probes record neural activity with excellent spatial and temporal (sub-millisecond) resolution, but from only a few dozen neurons per shank. Show More Summary
Nanosensors are incredible information-gathering tools for myriad applications, including molecular targets such as the brain. Neurotransmitter molecules govern brain function through chemistry found deep within the brain, so University of California, Berkeley researchers are developing nanosensors to gain a better understanding of exactly how this all plays out.

Once called the "third eye," the pineal gland is a gland located deep in the center of the brain. In this article, learn about how it regulates the body.
(Howard Hughes Medical Institute) A microscope lens implanted deep inside a mouse's brain shows different patterns of neural activity when the mouse interacts with males, females, or other stimuli. Now, researchers have discovered that sexual experience can trigger long-term changes in these brain patterns.

One of the things people frequently talk about as a drawback of the current class of deep learning techniques that are helping fuel the AI wave is that they require a lot of data to work. But how much is enough data? “I would say pretty much any business that has tens or hundreds of […]
Take a deep breath in and out. Do that 10 times. Do that 10 more times and then again. You've reached silence. Your bath has begun and you can work to soothe out all the kinks going on upstairs in your mind.

Website for the BROADEN™ study, which was terminated by the sponsor. A multi-site, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial of deep brain stimulation (DBS) for treatment-resistant depression has failed, according to a new article in Lancet Psychiatry. Show More Summary
While stationed in Fort Riley, Kansas after suffering a traumatic brain injury in Iraq, soldier Josh Marino fell into a deep pit of anxiety caused by posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). On the evening he decided to take his own life, he sat outside the barracks to smoke a final cigarette and heard a kitten meowing...
I used to tell people considering deep brain stimulation - which involves the surgical implantation of electrodes into the brain - that it gave the typical Parkinson's sufferer perhaps 10 years of relief, during which the symptoms would be relatively minor. The bet - this is, after all, brain surgery...
Years after deep brain stimulation, falling, getting “stuck” and “galloping” are new normal.
