If we wish to understand what are the rules followed by the representation of the world inside the brain we have to comprehend how electrical activation is linked to the sensory experience.
Identifying the neural code could greatly increase the chances those projects could succeed in all their stated goals Greenville, SC (PRWEB) March 28, 2013
Certain diseases are caused by single gene mutations, and with current techniques for identifying the disease-causing gene producing hundreds of potential gene candidates, it is difficult for scientists to pinpoint the single causative gene.
The transistors and wires that power our electronic devices need to be mounted on a base material known as a "motherboard."
US President Barack Obama outlines a new ambitious goal to jumpstart The Brain Activity Map Project, which will last ten years and explore the deepest, darkest, innermost regions of the human brain.
Machines rising up to enslave humanity and take over the world has been a popular theme in many science fiction works, but a new academic center in the works at Cambridge University will be dedicated to studying whether or not these kinds of potential technology-related threats could actually happen.
Listening abilities depend on rhythms in the brain
A team of Brazilian physicists working with neuroscientists studying freely behaving rats have found that their neurons often act in precise coordination over time.
A news study reveals that when the brain fires up the network of neurons that allows a person to empathize, the network used for analysis is suppressed.
