Automated System Could Monitor Drug-Induced Comas Accurately
2013-11-01 10:32:56

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A patient with a traumatic brain injury will sometimes be placed into a medically-induced coma, which allows the brain time to heal and dangerous swelling to subside. Brought about through the use of general anesthesia drugs, medically-induced comas can last for days. In the current system, doctors and nurses need to monitor these patients to ensure they are at the right level of sedation. A new study published in the journal PLOS...

Neuroscientists Discover New ‘Mini-neural Computer’ In The Brain
2013-10-31 07:35:43

University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Medicine Dendrites, the branch-like projections of neurons, were once thought to be passive wiring in the brain. But now researchers at UNC have shown that dendrites actively process information, multiplying the brain’s computing power. The finding could help researchers better understand neurological disorders. Dendrites, the branch-like projections of neurons, were once thought to be passive wiring in the brain. But now...

Humans And Rodents Process Their Mistakes

Brown University Study finds parallels in neural processing of 'adaptive control' People and rats may think alike when they've made a mistake and are trying to adjust their thinking. That's the conclusion of a study published online Oct. 20 in Nature Neuroscience that tracked specific similarities in how human and rodent subjects adapted to errors as they performed a simple time estimation task. When members of either species made a mistake in the trials, electrode recordings showed...

First Steps Toward Mind Reading
2013-10-15 15:39:52

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online According to a new study in the journal Nature Communications, researchers from Stanford University have used brain monitoring in ‘real-life’ situations to reveal the region of the brain responsible for numerical processing. The researcher said that unlike previous approaches, their research could lead to "mind-reading" technology that would allow a patient who cannot speak to communicate by simply thinking. They also speculate...
