A new study reveals that the slow oscillations in brain activity that occur during slow-wave sleep are critical for retaining memories. Playing sounds synchronized to the rhythm of the slow brain oscillations of sleeping people enhances the oscillations, the researchers found, and boosts memory retention.
Researchers are working on a new way to provide security where instead of typing a password, you simply think of it.
A retrospective study of patients who had in-hospital electroencephalography (EEG) has established that EEG is a valuable tool that could be deployed more widely to identify treatable causes of impaired consciousness in the hospital setting.
Reading text on digital devices like tablet computers requires less effort from older adults than reading on paper.
One of the mechanisms involved in human hearing is similar to the operation of a car battery, according to a new study by researchers at the University of Iowa.
Researchers have long observed that humans tend to synchronize their body movements with each other without consciously thinking about it. The mechanisms behind this phenomenon and its significance for social interaction, however, have largely remained a mystery.
Study shows networking properties between brains when guitarists play together
Electrocardiography, sometimes called ECG or EKG, is a measurement of the electrical activity of the heart as the linear process unfolds. With the use of electrodes that are attached to the skin, this non-invasive test can provide vast information as to the patient’s status. By leaving the electrodes attached, the patient’s status can be monitored over intervals of time and recorded on the device. This data can be sent electronically for consults about potential treatments without delay....
Electrooculography, sometimes shortened to EOG, is the tracing of electricity used for operation of the retina in different phases, specifically the resting potential. The results are recorded on an electrooculogram. These are interpreted for opthalmological diagnosis and in recording eye movements. Eye movement measurements: Usually, pairs of electrodes are placed either above and below the eye or to the left and right of the eye. If the eye is moved from the center position towards one...
