Your Brain Boots Up Like a Computer

by 2 others
As we yawn and open our eyes in the morning, the brain stem sends little puffs of nitric oxide to another part of the brain, the thalamus, which then directs it elsewhere.

Only Using Part of Your Brain? Think Again

When ferrets watch the mind-bending movie The Matrix, brain activity is only slightly higher than when they stare at nothing. Scientists say this might mean something about how much of your brain is in use.

New Neurons Need Signals to Survive

The human brain continues to produce new nerve cells throughout its life and these neurons may be key to learning new information. But many of these novice neurons wither and die before joining the vast signaling network of their mature peers. Now new res

ROBOKONEKO (Kitten Robot)

The main aim of ATR's CAM-Brain Project is to build/grow/evolve an artificial brain by 2001 with a billion artificial neurons.

GENOBYTE MAIN PAGE

Design of digital electronic circuits is a complex task requiring knowledge of a large collection of domain-specific rules.

世界著名人工智能專家欲在漢研制新的人工大腦

上月離開美國,被譽為「人工大腦」領域先驅的美國猶他州州立大學計算機系教授雨果‧德‧加里斯博士抵漢,成為武漢大學全職教授,受聘該校國際軟件學院國際人工智能研究室主任。

大腦奇幻之旅

有朝一日,會有人寫一部大腦的使用說明書,來解釋大腦的功能。說明書將一一交代新生兒是如何構成大腦,以及每個部分的具體功能,至於大腦如何出色地再現外部世界、同時又怎樣關注外部

Modeling Neural Development

This original and timely collection is one of the first books to study neural development using computational and mathematical modeling. Modeling provides precise and exact ways of expression, which allow us to go beyond the insights that intuitive or com

World in My Mind, My Mind in the World

Not consciousness, but knowledge of consciousness: that is what this book communicates in a fascinating way. Consciousness is the thread that links the disappearing gorilla with the octopus suffering from a stomach ache, and the person under anaesthetic w

海馬體:大腦真的很有意思!

會讀書、考試拿高分的人,不見得頭腦好;不懂得物理原理,不會計算拋物線,卻能把球丟到特定位置的運動好手比較聰明? 博學多聞不等於頭腦好;發現自己喜歡的東西,會非常徹底鑽研的人才是頭腦好? 年紀愈大愈善於用腦,超過三十歲大腦會更靈活;腦細胞不會死掉,反而不斷增加? 活用大腦不是為了「無限地增強記憶力」、「盡快解決問題」,而是為了過快樂有趣的生活? 大腦操縱記憶的部位「海馬體」,人腦中最具可塑性的地方就是這裡。

Bright Air, Brilliant Fire

In this challenging, exhilarating leap by a disciplined and original mind, Nobel Prize-winner Edelman (medicine, 1972) throws a neurobiological line between two ships--mind and matter--in the stormiest of scientific seas. In his defense of the biological component of mind, Edelman ( The Remembered Pres ent ) disposes of cognitive and behavioral theories of consciousness. To take up the slack, he extends current developments in brain neuroscience well into speculation. He is far too modest in stating that his goal is "to dispel the notion that the mind can be understood in the absence of biology," for the book is a near-kinetic series of critiques and proposals to connect physics and psychology. The "Harmonies" section draws on other disciplines--philosophy, linguistics and psychiatry, among others--to entwine these tendrils of thought into a "unified theory" of mind.

Welcome to Neurocomputing.org, the resource site for all those interested in simulating the brain within a dynamic virtual environment using realistic neurons having action potentials (not artificial neural networks) . Recent advances in 3D engines (like

Coffee Break Brain

Here's a reason to tell your boss to "give you a break." As this ScienCentral News video explains, scientists working with rats say breaks from activities may help your memory.

Putting your brain on a microchip

Despite false starts, cognitive computing research is finally bearing fruit, and billions of pounds of research is flowing in.

On Intelligence - Welcome

Numenta, Inc.

by 2 others
Numenta is developing a new type of computer memory system modeled after the human neocortex. The applications of this technology are broad and can be applied to solve problems in computer vision, artificial intelligence, robotics and machine learning. Th

Memory-prediction framework

The memory-prediction framework is a theory of brain function that was created by Jeff Hawkins and described in his book On Intelligence. This theory concerns the role of the hippocampus, neocortex, and the thalamus in matching sensory inputs to stored me

Theoretical Neuroscience - RedwoodCenter

It is often said that "neuroscience is data-rich yet theory-poor." Our aim is to supply useful algorithms and theoretical ideas to neuroscience in order * to provide new forms of analysis for neural data (spike trains, EEG, MRI), * to provide theories and

創智慧(On Intelligence)

智慧究竟是什麼?二十多年來人工智慧和神經網路等想要模擬人類智慧的嘗試失敗,正是因為他們沒有先了解什麼是智慧。霍金斯提出一個強有力的理論,解釋人類大腦是怎樣運作以及為什麼他

Brain Chips

We react naturally to the signals our brains send out to our bodies. Science has long been able to listen into the signals the brain sends, but is just now learning to turn those signals into meaningful action. The result is restoring movement and speech

Study Reveals New Vaccine Reverses Memory Loss

Imagine an Alzheimer's patient receiving a vaccine made of specialized blood cells and then showing a much- improved memory. Also, imagine that vaccine having no side effects and needing to be given only occasionally.
