'Number sense' arises from the recognition of visible objects

Humans and animals have a "number sense," an inborn ability to register the number of objects in a scene. The neural basis of this ability is believed to be what are called the number neurons, which respond to certain numbers ...

For better deep neural network vision, just add feedback (loops)

Your ability to recognize objects is remarkable. If you see a cup under unusual lighting or from unexpected directions, there's a good chance that your brain will still compute that it is a cup. Such precise object recognition ...

Neural fingerprints ID those likely to abstain from cocaine

By measuring the strength of connections between different brain networks, Yale researchers successfully predicted who would abstain from cocaine during treatment, they report Jan. 4 in the American Journal of Psychiatry.

The virtual cancer patient

No two cancers are the same. Each type of leukaemia has its peculiarities, every tumour patient a unique disease. Why? Cancer cells are degenerate cells whose growth is out of control as the result of various genetic changes. ...

Communication between neural networks

The brain is organized into a super-network of specialized networks of nerve cells. For such a brain architecture to function, these specialized networks – each located in a different brain area – need to be able to communicate ...

Stimulating deeper insights into brain function

Modeling changes in brain activity over time provides deeper insights into learning and behavioral responses. Observing the brain's response to repeated stimuli has helped KAUST researchers develop a method for modeling connectivity ...
