Deep neural networks show promise as models of human hearing

Computational models that mimic the structure and function of the human auditory system could help researchers design better hearing aids, cochlear implants, and brain-machine interfaces. A new study from MIT has found that ...

Enhanced AI tracks neurons in moving animals

Recent advances allow imaging of neurons inside freely moving animals. However, to decode circuit activity, these imaged neurons must be computationally identified and tracked. This becomes particularly challenging when the ...

Study reveals broader impact of Alzheimer's on brain function

Scientists at The University of Texas at Dallas Center for Vital Longevity (CVL) have published new evidence that shows changes in brain network patterns that occur in early-stage Alzheimer's disease differ from those associated ...

Neuroscience

Physicists overturn common assumptions regarding brain activity

The brain is a complex network containing billions of neurons. The soma of each of these neurons communicates simultaneously with thousands of others via their synapses (links), and collects incoming signals through several ...
