2013-06-18 13:09:41

For less than $100, University of Washington researchers have designed a computer-interfaced drawing pad that helps scientists see inside the brains of children with learning disabilities while they read and write.

Brain-Computer Interface Allows Patients To Control Robotic Limbs
2013-06-12 09:56:08

Electrodes placed on or inside the brain allow patients to interact with computers or control robotic limbs by merely thinking about how to execute those actions, University of Washington researchers reported on Tuesday.

Study Shows Where Scene Context Happens In Our Brain
2013-05-21 13:17:48

Over the millennia of human evolution, our brains developed a pattern of search based largely on environmental cues and scene context. It's an ability that has not only helped us find food and avoid danger in humankind's earliest days, but continues to aid us today, in tasks as banal as driving to work, or shopping; or as specialized as reading X-rays.

Brain Trauma Diagnostics Transformed Using Wireless Signals
2013-05-15 08:15:36

New technology developed at the University of California, Berkeley, is using wireless signals to provide real-time, non-invasive diagnoses of brain swelling or bleeding.

Frontal Lobe May Not Be Key To Intelligence After All
2013-05-14 08:56:44

A new study found the frontal lobes of humans are not disproportionately larger compared to other parts of the brain, suggesting that other brain regions may play a more critical role in our unique cognitive abilities than previously thought.

Scientists Look At How The Brain Compensates For Speed
2013-05-08 18:47:22

Researchers from the University of California in Berkeley have finally pinpointed the area of the brain responsible for not only seeing fast-moving objects, but responding to them as well.

2013-05-08 17:12:26

Scientists at the Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute have discovered how the predominant class of Alzheimer's pharmaceuticals might sharpen the brain's performance.

2013-05-04 11:57:08

Mathematicians from Queen Mary, University of London will bring researchers one-step closer to understanding how the structure of the brain relates to its function in two recently published studies.
