redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Men and women have ‘striking’ differences in their neural wiring that might explain some of the behavioral differences between the two sexes, according to a study published Monday in the Proceedings of National Academy of Sciences. The study was one of the largest to date to create to compare the connectomes, neural maps of the brain, of men and women. The results revealed that men have far greater neural connectivity from...

A paper published in a special edition of the journal Science proposes a novel understanding of brain architecture using a network representation of connections within the primate cortex. Zoltán Toroczkai, professor of physics at the University of Notre Dame and co-director of the Interdisciplinary Center for Network Science and Applications, is a co-author of the paper "Cortical High-Density Counterstream Architectures." Using brain-wide and consistent tracer data, the researchers...

Poor neural processing of sound linked to lower maternal education Groundbreaking research nearly two decades ago linking a mother's educational background to her children's literacy and cognitive abilities stands out among decades of social science studies demonstrating the adverse effects of poverty. Now new research conducted at Northwestern University has taken that finding in a neuroscientific direction: linking poor processing of auditory information in the adolescent brain to a...

Vicarious Artificial Intelligence Cracks CAPTCHAs

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online There have been movies and books around for quite a while depicting Artificial Intelligence (AI) software and machines that become self aware. Perhaps the most famous was The Terminator movie franchise, but it is by no means the only example. Until today, there seemed to be little hope of that ever happening. Vicarious, a California startup company that develops AI software, has announced that the algorithms used by its software can now...

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Scientists and robotics engineers have long looked to the human brain for inspiration when building out artificial intelligence. They’ve yet to build a machine that comes anywhere close to replicating the sophistication of the human brain, but they’ve made great strides. Now the National Science Foundation (NSF) wants to push this field of study further by giving the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) $25 million to...
