The dendritic arms of some human neurons can perform logic operations that once seemed to require whole neural networks.
An organized tide of brain waves, blood and spinal fluid pulsing through a sleeping brain may flush away neural toxins that cause Alzheimer’s and other diseases.
Machine learning and deep neural networks can capture and analyze the “language” of animal behavior in ways that go beyond what’s humanly possible.
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.
While we sleep, one kind of slow brain wave helps to reinforce memories, but a competing wave weakens them.
Researchers have discovered a surprising mathematical relationship in the brain’s representations of sensory information, with possible applications to AI research.
