Machine learning and deep neural networks can capture and analyze the “language” of animal behavior in ways that go beyond what’s humanly possible.
New research makes a molecular connection between the brain and aging — and shows that overactive neurons can shorten life span.
Taste and smell receptors in unexpected organs monitor the state of the body’s natural microbial health and raise an alarm over invading parasites.
Activity in the visual cortex and other sensory areas is dominated by signals about body movements, down to little tics and twitches. Scientists are now rethinking how they study and conceive of perception.
Singing experiments with residents of the Bolivian rainforest demonstrate how biology and experience shape the way we hear music.
