Opportunities and challenges companies will face integrating and implementing deep learning frameworks. Deep learning is a class of machine learning (ML) algorithms inspired by the human brain. Also called neural networks, these algorithms...Show More Summary
A father and daughter were traveling from Toronto to London. The 14 year old girl is quadriplegic and has cerebral palsy. They had gone to Canada to watch ice hockey after her deep brain stimulation treatments. At the airport staff dropped her wheelchair and broke it. Show More Summary
Degeneration of the brain’s deep gray matter is associated with more rapid disability in multiple sclerosis patients, a European study shows. The research, “Deep gray matter volume loss drives disability worsening in multiple sclerosis,” was published in the journal Annals of Neurology. Show More Summary
(Michigan Medicine - University of Michigan) Around the clock, cells deep in the brain produces a 'grandfather' form of several hormones that help us regulate our appetite and eating. Now, a new discovery sheds new light on how thatShow More Summary
Eyes may be the windows to the soul. But they also offer insight into cardiovascular disease. According to a study published this week by the Google Brain team, retinal images can “very accurately” […] The post Google AI Looks Deep Into Your Eyes to Predict Heart Disease appeared first on Geek.com.
Around the clock, cells deep in the brain produces a "grandfather" form of several hormones that help us regulate our appetite and eating. Now, a new discovery sheds new light on how that grandfather molecule gets produced - and more important, what can go wrong and raise the risk of overeating and obesity. Show More Summary
Optogenetics is a powerful method developed over the past few years that lets scientists use light to activate specific genetically modified neurons within the brain. This technology still has a lot of time left in the lab before it can help to address human diseases, but that reality may be a bit closer thanks to […]

(National University of Singapore) Scientists from the National University of Singapore (NUS) have worked with an international research team to jointly develop a novel approach for deep brain stimulation. The new method utilises upconversion...Show More Summary
(RIKEN) Studying deep brain tissues noninvasively is difficult. Now RIKEN scientists in Japan have developed a way to send light deep into the brain without invasive optical fibers. The method uses infrared light outside the head to activate upconversion nanoparticles (UCNPs). Show More Summary
(Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin) A pilot study conducted by researchers from Charité's NeuroCure Cluster of Excellence has shown that treatment with deep transcranial magnetic stimulation (dTMS) significantly reduces symptoms of fatigue in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS).

Move over, deep learning. Neuromorphic computing—the next big thing in artificial intelligence—is on fire. Just last week, two studies individually unveiled computer chips modeled after information processing in the human brain. TheShow More Summary
Amazon’s Prime Exclusive Phones have always been something of a devil’s bargain. In exchange for deep discounts on unlocked phones, users had to live with lock-screen ads, which had a unique way of searing themselves into your brain after a day of routine smartphone use. Show More Summary
Opinion: An MIT brain science professor argues that progress in deep learning research will come from the convergence of engineering and neuroscience.
A neuron firing deep in the brain might sound a little like: Drumroll...cymbal crash! Drumroll...cymbal crash! Repeat. With emphasis on "repeat," according to a new study.
From “What Does It Mean to Die?/When Jahi McMath was declared brain-dead by the hospital, her family disagreed. Her case challenges the very nature of existence” by Rachel Aviv (The New Yorker):According to New Jersey’s 1991 statuteShow More Summary
At Ohio State University, clinical researchers have successfully tested deep brain stimulation as a possible treatment option to slow down the onset of Alzheimer’s symptoms. Three patients with the disease had a Medtronic deep brain stimulator implanted, with leads reaching into the frontal lobe where a lot of advanced cognitive tasks are done. Following initiation […]
Is deep brain stimulation a way forward in treating Alzheimer's disease? A phase I clinical trial suggests that it can improve cognitive functioning.
Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is a technique where wires are implanted into specific areas of the brain to deliver very mild electrical stimulation. Colloquially referred to as a "brain pacemaker," DBS is currently being investigated as treatment for a variety of conditions, from Parkinson's disease to depression. Show More Summary
