AI Can Now Decode Speech From Brain Activity

With astonishing but still imperfect accuracy, artificial intelligence (AI) can decode words and sentences from brain activity. AI makes an estimate as to what a person has heard based on a few seconds worth of brain activity data. In a...

New Study Shows Humans Differ From Neanderthals Due to Growing Brains

A new scientific study suggests that human brains make more neural connections during development, a phenomenon that leads to growing brains and differentiates us from Neanderthals. Scientists have always pondered what makes humans a special species with some suggesting it's...

Human Brain Cells Learn Faster Than AI Study Finds

Researchers have recently taught human brain cells in a petri dish to play the retro videogame Pong faster than artificial intelligence (AI). Scientists created what they dubbed the "cyborg brain" in order to measure biological neurons against AI. This "brain"...

One Alcoholic Drink a Day Linked With Smaller Brain, Study Says

Alcohol and the human brain don't have a healthy relationship. People who drink heavily undergo alterations in brain structure and size, both of which are associated with cognitive impairments, a new study released on Friday suggests. Even modest alcohol consumption, which...

Some Neurons in the Brain Selectively Respond Only to Sound of Singing

Scientists on Tuesday announced they had found an unexpected response to singing in the brain, suggesting particular groups of neurons appear to respond selectively to these particular sound. In a Current Biology journal article, a team of scientists in the...

Brain Scan Suggests We Play a “Last Recall” of Life Events Before Death

In the first ever recording of a dying brain, scientists say we may actually relive our most important life events just before death, a University of Louisville research paper suggests. Published on Tuesday, the paper recounts how scientists accidentally captured...

Changes Similar to Alzheimers Take Place in Covid Patients’ Brains

Brain alterations similar to those found in Alzheimers patients are occurring in Covid patients' brains as well, according to a new study out of New York City's Columbia University. Reuters reports in a summary of several recent studies on the...

Greek Professor in Australia Discovers New Area in Brain

The internationally renowned neuroscientist Professor George Paxinos, a researcher at Neuroscience Research Australia-NeuRA, has discovered a new, previously unknown area in the human brain. The region, which Paxinos called "Endorestiform Nucleus", is near the point where the brain connects with...
