Clinical trials showing gist-reasoning training creates neural changes, supports LearningRx results. Colorado Spring, Colo (PRWEB) May 20, 2014 A new data-driven perspective article from the Center for Brain Health at The University of Texas at Dallas found that brain training focused on strategic attention, innovation, and integrated reasoning created lasting cognitive and neural changes that spilled over into real life. Brain training participants ranged from teenagers to healthy older...

Neural Networks Imitate Intelligence Of Biological Brains
2014-05-16 03:16:13

National Science Foundation For every thought or behavior, the brain erupts in a riot of activity, as thousands of cells communicate via electrical and chemical signals. Each nerve cell influences others within an intricate, interconnected neural network. And connections between brain cells change over time in response to our environment. Despite supercomputer advances, the human brain remains the most flexible, efficient information processing device in the world. Its exceptional...

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. Publishing in Physical Review Letters the researchers from the Complex Networks group at Queen Mary´s School of Mathematical Sciences describe how different areas in the brain can have an association despite a lack of direct interaction. The team, in collaboration with researchers in...

Paper offers a mathematical formulation of the brain's neural networks As computer scientists this year celebrate the 100th anniversary of the birth of the mathematical genius Alan Turing, who set out the basis for digital computing in the 1930s to anticipate the electronic age, they still quest after a machine as adaptable and intelligent as the human brain. Now, computer scientist Hava Siegelmann of the University of Massachusetts Amherst, an expert in neural networks, has taken...

Scientists from the University of Wisconsin have successfully had implanted neurons, created in laboratory conditions, connect with the brains of mice and both send and receive signals. In research published Monday in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), lead author Jason P. Weick and associates Yan Liu and Su-Chun Zhang describe how they were able to take blank slate human embryonic stem cells (hESC), turn them into neurons, implant them into the brains of...
