BCI training reduces phantom limb pain

BCI training reduces phantom limb pain

Scientists used brain-computer-interface to train the brains of patients to reduce phantom-hand pain.

Game helps neuroscientists understand second language learners

Game helps neuroscientists understand second language learners

Researchers found that a game could help scientists understand how second language learners learn a new language, and could even help them learn it faster.

Neural networks: artificial brains need sleep too

Neural networks: artificial brains need sleep too

States that resemble sleep-like cycles in simulated neural networks quell the instability that comes with uninterrupted self-learning in artificial analogs of brains.

VR study: our visual world of color is incorrect

VR study: our visual world of color is incorrect

A study finds that people are aware of surprisingly limited color in their peripheral vision; much of our sense of a colorful visual world is likely constructed by our brain.

Machine learning enhances brain tumour diagnosis

Machine learning enhances brain tumour diagnosis

A new AI approach classifies a common type of brain tumour into low or high grades with almost 98% accuracy, researchers report.
