Medicine & TechnologyA special collection of studies show that photobiomodulation (PBM) could treat neurodegenerative and other neurological disorders by using red or near-infrared light to stimulate healing.
Associative memory is the brain's ability to remember relationships between unrelated concepts. Scientists agree that it is formed in the memory center of the brain but the exact neurons responsible have remained a mystery until now.
The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai's new study reveals that a part of the brain that controls habits may also play a critical role in learning new things. Researchers hope to learn new insights about neurons and circuits that underlie neurological disorders involving behavior control.
A neurotechnology company has made mind-reading headphones with cloth sensors that track neurons like a mobile EEG. It monitors neural impulses to silence notifications, turn up noise-canceling white noise, or suggest a mental break.
Scientists used brain imaging technology in infants to examine the emergence of neural flexibility and its role in predicting reading ability, academic success, resilience to stress, creativity, and lowering the risks of developing psychiatric problems.
