After a lackluster outing in a scrimmage last weekend, Dolphins coach Adam Gase feels better about the way his offense has looked in practice this week and he also feels comfortable about the approach he’s picked for the offense being the best one for his team. On Wednesday, Gase was asked about the limited number…
“These systems are potentially more precise and less invasive than existing techniques for altering brain activity such as deep brain stimulation. With so much progress on a variety of fronts, some form of human mind control – and the treatments and benefits it confers – should be here before long.”
We deep dive into modern brain mapping, donut-delivering drones and glasses-free 3D at the movies. Also, we welcome Ivan Van Norman to the show to discuss his shows on Geek & Sundry and the resurgence of tabletop gaming.
This morning, I took a walk. An easy couple of miles around the neighborhood to get some oxygen running through my brain and meditate on the hoof, admiring trees (the maple over on Lexington with its vast deep pool of shade, the enormous old willow dripping over the drainage ditch where kids practice breaking collarbones […]
People who sustain a traumatic brain injury (TBI) are at high risk for developing deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism. But blood-thinning medications started within 72 hours of hospital arrival have a significant protective effect against these conditions in patients with severe TBI and do not increase risk of bleeding complications or death, say investigators.
CHICAGO (July 21, 2016): People who sustain a traumatic brain injury (TBI) are at high risk for developing deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE). PE is a leading cause of death in these patients. read more

New findings published today by a team of researchers led by Dr. Andres Lozano at the Krembil Neuroscience Centre (KNC) of Toronto Western Hospital (TWH) have provided further insight into the effects of Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) in the treatment of Alzheimer's disease.
Researchers have developed a method to measure how the brain responds to electrical stimulation and use the response to maximize efficacy of deep brain stimulation (DBS) -- a therapy that has been successfully used to treat advanced stages of Parkinson's disease. Show More Summary
“Inner space is as mysterious and deep as outer space.” Vsauce gives Bugatti a new slogan, ruins tofu, dives deep into what we think we know about how we think and advices us to keep moving, keep learning and keep hugging.

St. Jude Medical is launching in Europe its Infinity Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) System and directional DBS lead for treatment of Parkinson’s, tremor, and dystonia. The system was designed to allow for a more targeted approach that can lead to better results for patients. Show More Summary
Pundits often describe deep learning as an imitation of the human brain. But it's really just simple math executed on an enormous scale. The post Deep Learning Isn't a Dangerous Magic Genie. It's Just Math appeared first on WIRED.
New brain research reinforces the connection between deep sleep and memory. One of the benefits of sleep is its contributions to memory. People with sleep disorders, such as sleep apnea or chronic insomnia, who may experience little non-rapid-eye-movement (non-REM) sleep—the deepest level of sleep—tend to have impaired memory functions.

Rats' excited and speedy responses to cues for sugar - akin to binge eating - became more subdued when certain neurons in their brains were turned off.
It is not surprising that a good night's sleep improves our ability to remember what we learned during the day. Now, researchers have discovered a brain circuit that governs how certain memories are consolidated in the brain during sleep. Show More Summary
