The final tally: 123 songs. This includes five performances each of "Sunday Bloody Sunday," "Beautiful Day" and "With or Without You," earworms that have now burrowed deep inside my brain and sought asylum. I attended all five shows of U2's Chicago residency - nearly 12 hours of Bono & Co. in the...
Recently, Science and Nature had news features on big BRAIN funding for the development of deep brain stimulation technologies. The ultimate aim of this research is to treat and correct malfunctioning neural circuits in psychiatric and neurological disorders. Show More Summary
A specific calcium channel plays a crucial role in deep, slow-wave sleep, scientists have discovered. This is a key step toward understanding both normal and abnormal waking brain functions.
Sleep seems simple enough, a state of rest and restoration that almost every vertebrate creature must enter regularly in order to survive. But the brain responds differently to stimuli when asleep than when awake, and it is not clear what brain changes happen during sleep. Show More Summary
It’s always interesting to learn how our shopping behaviors are influenced. Sure, advertisers manipulate our habits, but our brains go with it, because deep down, we have a desire to consume. There are a few natural impulses that make us want to spend more. Read more...
lol @ “songs,” amirite? And “music,” too. Deep belly lol there. Like, I like a nice cohesive verse-chorus-verse type thing as much as the next person, but my brain really starts to fire when any semblance of structure breaks apart before me into a mass of raw material closer to some hideous sculpture with sharpened metal protrusions than a song.

Clinatec chairman Alim-Louis Benabid, MD, PhD -- considered the "father of deep brain stimulation " -- receives the International Neuromodulation Society's third Giant of Neuromodulation award at its 12th World Congress in Montreal
Children and adolescents who received deep brain stimulation for generalized dystonia maintained significant symptom relief for up to eight years, according to a study presented today at the 12th World Congress of the International Neuromodulation Society.
The ability of a carbon nanofiber pad to detect changing neurotransmitter concentrations was demonstrated in a proof-of-principle collaboration between engineers and neurosurgeons. The active area was one-tenth the size of current deep-brain-stimulation electrical contacts.
The company suggests machine learning will help autonomous technology quickly progress from prototype to production.
Researchers from Duke Medicine have created a high-resolution map of the human brain stem that they say could help guide surgeons during deep brain stimulation.
A 3-D map of the human brain stem has been produced at an unprecedented level of detail using MRI technology. In a new study, the researchers unveil an ultra high-resolution brain stem model that could better guide brain surgeons treating conditions such as tremors and Parkinson's disease with deep brain stimulation.

Pogo’s latest remix is comprised of sound bites from a wide variety of animated and live-action motion pictures. Like many of his tunes, this one will crawl deep into your ears, and not let go of your brain as it works its way to your heart.
A team of neuroscientists and bioengineers has created a miniature, fiber-optic microscope designed to peer deeply inside a living brain. The laser-scanning microscope, a prototype which will be further refined, uses fiber-optics and a tiny electrowetting lens. Show More Summary
Flying people to deep space — like Mars or an asteroid — is high on NASA’s wish list, but research on mice suggested Friday that extended radiation exposure permanently harms the brain. Central nervous system damage and cognitive impairments were observed in lab animals that were...
CP+B Scandinavia took a unique approach to its latest campaign for Boxer, a Swedish TV channel provider. Here’s the angle: the client currently offers customers a “bundle” of 16 channels as a subscription package. When faced with such...Show More Summary
New York Times best-selling author Bruce Feldman on picking Winston or Mariota in the NFL Draft and on his latest book - The QB. With deep reporting on brain typing, military challenges, and a focus on leadership skills, those interested in leadership development will come away with quality insights.
A promising new treatment for epilepsy directly targets the nerve cells, deep within the brain, that cause seizures. The treatment uses an electronic micropump and an anticonvulsant drug to inhibit the relevant areas of the brain without affecting healthy brain regions. Show More Summary
