Neuroscientists are taking inspiration from natural motor control to design new prosthetic devices that can better replace limb function. In new work, researchers have tested a range of brain-controlled devices - from wheelchairs to robots to advanced limbs - that work with their users to intelligently perform tasks.
Ethology, a sub-topic of zoology, is the study of animal behavior that focuses on behavior in natural settings, as opposed to behaviourism, which focuses on the behavior of animals in laboratory settings. The term “ethology” is based off the Greek word ethos, which means character. It was first made popular in 1902 by William Morton Wheeler, an American myrmecologist, but the term was actually suggested by John Stuart Mill in 1843 for use in associationistic psychology. Ethology can also...
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...
Genes, Brain and Behavior (G2B) is a peer-reviewed scientific journal established in 2002. It is published by Wiley-Blackwell on behalf of the International Behavioral and Neural Genetics Society. It was published on a quarterly basis during its first year in publication. In 2003, the journal switched to bimonthly publications, and then in 2006 it switched to an 8-issue-per-year schedule. Content from G2B is available online from the Wiley Online Library or, from EBSCOhost after 12 months....
