Almost everyone has experienced one memory triggering another, but explanations for that phenomenon have proved elusive. Now, University of Pennsylvania researchers have provided the first neurobiological evidence that memories formed in the same context become linked, the foundation of the theory of episodic memory. The research was conducted by professor Michael Kahana of the Department of Psychology in the School of Arts and Sciences and graduate student Jeremy R. Manning, of the...

Bringing the real world into the brain scanner, researchers at The University of Western Ontario from The Centre for Brain and Mind (http://www.uwo.ca/its/brain/) can now determine the action a person was planning, mere moments before that action is actually executed. The findings were published this week in the prestigious Journal of Neuroscience, in the paper, "Decoding Action Intentions from Preparatory Brain Activity in Human Parieto-Frontal Networks." "This is a considerable step forward...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) -- A new brain implant may one day be used to reactivate paralyzed limbs. Researchers at the University of Michigan developed the brain implant, which is called the BioBolt. It uses the body's skin like a conductor to wirelessly transmit the brain's neural signals to control a computer. According to the researchers, this brain implant is minimally invasive and low power, unlike other neural interface technologies that establish a connection from the brain to an external...
