Boston Scientific’s Vercise Neurostimulation System Approved for Parkinson’s in U.S.

Boston Scientific won FDA approval for its Vercise Deep Brain Stimulation System for treatment of Parkinson’s. The implantable stimulator can be programmed in a variety of ways to target different regions of the subthalamic nucleus. This may help to reduce the symptoms of Parkinson’s by delivering therapy in an optimal way for each patient. The […]

Neurons have the right shape for deep learning

Deep learning has brought about machines that can 'see' the world more like humans can, and recognize language. And while deep learning was inspired by the human brain, the question remains: Does the brain actually learn this way? The answer has the potential to create more powerful artificial intelligence and unlock the mysteries of human intelligence.

Neurons have the right shape for deep learning

(Canadian Institute for Advanced Research) Researchers unveiled an algorithm that simulates how deep learning could work in our brains. The network shows that certain mammalian neurons have the shape and electrical properties that are well-suited for deep learning.

MedTech Startup Launches AI Platform to Help Radiologists Diagnose Stroke Faster Using CT Brain Scans

Infervision, the medtech company which uses Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning to improve medical image analysis and significantly speed radiologists’ reading of scans and X-rays, today is launching a artificial intelligence (AI) platform to help radiologists diagnose strokes quickly using CT brain scans.

Low frequency brain stimulation improves cognition in Parkinson's disease

(University of Iowa Health Care) A multidisciplinary neuroscience study using rare, intraoperative brain recordings suggests that low frequency stimulation of a deep brain region may be able to improve cognitive function in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD). Show More Summary

Nikon CFI90 20XC Glyc objective for biological microscopes supports whole brain imaging

Nikon announced the release of a new objective for biological microscopes, the CFI90 20XC Glyc, designed for deep imaging of whole, cleared tissues such as the brains. Nikon’s new CFI90 20XC Glyc.. The post Nikon CFI90 20XC Glyc objective for biological microscopes supports whole brain imaging appeared first on Gadgets, gizmos, and tech from the East.

Fully integrated silicon probes for high-density recording of neural activity

last monthAcademics : Nature

Sensory, motor and cognitive operations involve the coordinated action of large neuronal populations across multiple brain regions in both superficial and deep structures. Existing extracellular probes record neural activity with excellent spatial and temporal (sub-millisecond) resolution, but from only a few dozen neurons per shank. Show More Summary

Tiny sensors developed to study the secrets of brain chemistry

Nanosensors are incredible information-gathering tools for myriad applications, including molecular targets such as the brain. Neurotransmitter molecules govern brain function through chemistry found deep within the brain, so University of California, Berkeley researchers are developing nanosensors to gain a better understanding of exactly how this all plays out.

Medical News Today: What is the pineal gland?

Once called the "third eye," the pineal gland is a gland located deep in the center of the brain. In this article, learn about how it regulates the body.

Mini-microscopes reveal brain circuitry behind social behavior

(Howard Hughes Medical Institute) A microscope lens implanted deep inside a mouse's brain shows different patterns of neural activity when the mouse interacts with males, females, or other stimuli. Now, researchers have discovered that sexual experience can trigger long-term changes in these brain patterns.

Brain surgery for Parkinson's changed my life, but now my symptoms are back

I used to tell people considering deep brain stimulation - which involves the surgical implantation of electrodes into the brain - that it gave the typical Parkinson's sufferer perhaps 10 years of relief, during which the symptoms would be relatively minor. The bet - this is, after all, brain surgery...
