[ Watch the Video ] Have you ever imagined taking on the role of Spock in the popular Star Trek shows and films, using your mind melding abilities to read the thoughts of others. Well that could one day become a reality, in a roundabout way. Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley and University of California, San Francisco, have demonstrated a new method to reconstruct words, based on signals from the brains of patients thinking of those words. While it is a far cry from...

Scientists have now discovered how different brain regions cooperate during short-term memory Holding information within one´s memory for a short while is a seemingly simple and everyday task. We use our short-term memory when remembering a new telephone number if there is nothing to write at hand, or to find the beautiful dress inside the store that we were just admiring in the shopping window. Yet, despite the apparent simplicity of these actions, short-term memory is a complex...

The Drake Institute announces an Autism Breakthrough. Advanced neurofeedback treatment protocols are derived from an analysis of the patient's quantitative EEG brainmap. As many as 19 areas of the brain can be treated simultaneously to create more functional connections in the brain to improve social communication, language, and emotional stability. Irvine, California (PRWEB) December 23, 2011 The Drake Institute of Behavioral Medicine in southern California has applied a new...

TAU study finds anxiety-ridden individuals are less sensitive to their environments Anxious people have long been classified as "hypersensitive" – they're thought to be more fearful and feel threatened more easily than their counterparts. But new research from Tel Aviv University shows that the anxious may not be hypersensitive at all – in fact, they may not be sensitive enough. As part of a study on how the brain processes fear in anxious and non-anxious individuals, Tahl...

Researchers at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (UMB) have developed a new method for detailed analyses of electrical activity in the brain. The method, recently published in Neuron, can help doctors and researcher to better interpret brain cell signals. In turn, this may lead to considerable steps forward in terms of interpreting for example EEG measurements, making diagnoses and treatment of various brain illnesses. Researchers and doctors have been measuring and interpreting...

New research published Dec. 9 in the journal Science suggests it may be possible to use brain technology to learn to play a piano, reduce mental stress or hit a curve ball with little or no conscious effort. It's the kind of thing seen in Hollywood's "Matrix" franchise. Experiments conducted at Boston University (BU) and ATR Computational Neuroscience Laboratories in Kyoto, Japan, recently demonstrated that through a person's visual cortex, researchers could use decoded functional magnetic...

Penn-led team develops microelectronic device to map brain activity A team of researchers co-led by the University of Pennsylvania has developed and tested a new high-resolution, ultra-thin device capable of recording brain activity from the cortical surface without having to use penetrating electrodes. The device could make possible a whole new generation of brain-computer interfaces for treating neurological and psychiatric illness and research. The work was published in Nature...
