Our brains never stop adapting.
You’d have to rack your brain pretty hard to recall a UFC on FOX card as deep or important as tonight’s UFC on FOX 24 event. You have plenty of reasons to tune in.Filed under: Featured, News, UFC
It was already known that people affected by Parkinson's disease, when subjected to deep brain stimulation, gained weight, but it was less clear why that was so. New research has now shown that the weight gain after implant has a multifactorial origin. Show More Summary
If the first part of your week has been filled with noise and chatter, why not take a moment to take a deep breath and blur all the hectic stuff out of the brain for a few minutes. Maybe this song from Washed Out's debut album, 2011's Within and Without, will help with that. What are you listening to tonight?
A new study looks at the effects of disturbed deep sleep on the neuroplasticity in the brain's motor cortex and the ability to learn new movements.
Nestled deep inside a fruit fly's brain, specialized nerve cells knit themselves into a tiny compass. New results from neuroscientists at the Janelia Research Campus illuminate the architecture of this circuit and the neural forces that collectively move the compass needle.
(University of Zurich) For the first time, researchers of the University of Zurich and Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich have demonstrated the causal context of why deep sleep is important to the learning efficiency of the human brain. They have developed a new, noninvasive method for modulating deep sleep in humans in a targeted region of the brain.
Like the rocket scientist moonlighting as a supermodel, there's something special about finding the perfect combination of brains and beauty. History is full of advanced cars that, as well as stopping traffic with their stunning looks, outdid their rivals with more power, better handling and smarter packaging. Show More Summary
(Scuola Internazionale Superiore di Studi Avanzati) It was already known that people affected by Parkinson's disease, when subjected to deep brain stimulation, gained weight, but it was less clear why that was so. New research by the...Show More Summary
Nothing lights up the brain quite like the rich, lyrical melodies of composer Camille Saint-Saëns’ The Swan, carefully played on a cello. Noted physician and author David Agus was deep in thought as he listened to a live, solo performance of The Swan, at Fortune’s Brainstorm Health conference in San Diego on Wednesday. But Agus […]
Neurala designs and produces software that imitates the actions of the human brain through Deep Learning technology. In 2013, it was awarded a contract with NASA to train the rover, Curiosity, to travel across the Martian terrain. The...Show More Summary
Researchers say that 'pink noise' - gentle, soothing sound - boosts deep sleep and memory for older adults when synced with brain waves during slumber.
Deep learning neural network software startup Neurala Inc. has announced it has received a patent for its “whole brain” system for autonomous robotic control. The Neurala Brain is a deep learning neural networks platform that allowsShow More Summary
Winner of the Best International Abstract Award, Laura Salgado Lopez, MD, presented her research, A Pilot Study of Deep Brain Stimulation in Treatment-resistant Schizophrenia, during the 2017 American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS) Annual Scientific Meeting.
The biological clock is located deep in the brain, but it may be possible to reset it by targeting certain cells in a person's eyes, a new study finds.

People who are in a deep slumber may not be able to say whether they're dreaming, but their brain waves might.
The technique sends electrical signals to a part of the brain that may function abnormally in the disorder, which causes tics and vocal outbursts.
By now we’ve seen everything from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas to Donald Trump to popular memes processed by neural networks like Google’s Deep Dream. They’re like bizarre drug trips, but without the drugs. But it was only recently that someone was curious enough to see what a neural network would make of the human… Read more...
