A new technique using ultrasound to clear the toxic protein clumps thought to cause dementia and Alzheimer’s disease is moving to the first phase of human trials next year. The treatment has proven successful across animal tests and presents an exciting, drug-free way to potentially battle dementia.
In a new paper, researchers at MIT have detailed a neural network capable of detecting depression. Unlike previous methods using machine learning, MIT’s neural net doesn’t require the subject to answer specific questions – it can make an assessment based on everyday conversation, or even text.
Memories are transferred from one snail to another in a laboratory.
Researchers led by Tobias Loetscher from the University of South Australia used machine learning to understand how eye movements and personality are related.
Scientists from the University of California claim to have developed a machine that can interpret and translate your thoughts into words in real time, with a 90 per cent accuracy.
We should be teaching our youth with the intrinsic rewards of awe as opposed to the extrinsic reward of grades.
In an experiment with science fiction implications, neurologists say they taught monkeys to play a game by stimulating their brains with electrodes.
Bryan Johnson’s company, Kernel, aims to improve mental function and treat disorders by creating a brain interface
HUMANS of the future could have enormous lungs to live in underwater kingdoms, or biohacked brains where memories can be bought and sold for a fee.
Mensa accepts human geniuses with an IQ of 130.
