National Science Foundation For every thought or behavior, the brain erupts in a riot of activity, as thousands of cells communicate via electrical and chemical signals. Each nerve cell influences others within an intricate, interconnected neural network. And connections between brain cells change over time in response to our environment. Despite supercomputer advances, the human brain remains the most flexible, efficient information processing device in the world. Its exceptional...

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Robotic scientists, it seems, are hell bent on creating autonomous, animalistic robots. These machines, should the scientists have their way, would be capable of running faster than any human being, scaling all manner of rough terrain, and now, taking flight on their own, thinking like a bee in order to find certain sights and smells. The robot take over is nigh. A new report from the Universities of Sheffield and Sussex...

Scientists have discovered proof that the evolution of intelligence and larger brain sizes can be driven by cooperation Scientists have discovered proof that the evolution of intelligence and larger brain sizes can be driven by cooperation and teamwork, shedding new light on the origins of what it means to be human. The study appears online in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B and was led by scientists at Trinity College Dublin: PhD student, Luke McNally and Assistant...

Scientists are attempting to engineer a human-like brain with the help of powerful supercomputers. It's called the Blue Brain project, led by computer genius Henry Markram, who is also the director of the Center for Neuroscience & Technology and the Brain Mind Institute. Markram has worked on the project for the past five years. Last month he claimed at a conference in Oxford, that he plans to build an electronic human brain 'within ten years'. Many questions surround this...

A leading scientist has claimed that a detailed, functional artificial human brain could be built within the next 10 years, BBC News reported. Henry Markram, director of the Blue Brain Project, has already simulated elements of a rat brain. A synthetic human brain would be of particular use finding treatments for mental illnesses, Markram told the TED Global conference in Oxford. He said some two billion people are thought to suffer some kind of brain impairment and that it is not impossible...
