Clues to Obesity's Roots Found in Brain's Quality Control Process

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

Upconversion Nanoparticles Deliver Light Deep Into Brain to Power Optogenetic Therapies

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 […]

Amazon is undoing the worst part of its cheap Prime phones

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

To Advance Artificial Intelligence, Reverse-Engineer the Brain

Opinion: An MIT brain science professor argues that progress in deep learning research will come from the convergence of engineering and neuroscience.

Neurons get the beat and keep it going in drumrolls

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.

"I think that the people who have done the deep and conceptual thinking about brain death are people with high I.Q.s, who tremendously value their cognitive abilities...."
