Engineers at Brown University have developed a wireless, broadband fully implantable brain sensor that is rechargeable, and has performed well in animal models for more than a year.
Humans have at least two functional networks in their cerebral cortex that aren't found in rhesus monkeys, and which appear to be unique.
Researchers at the University of Waterloo, Canada, have built the world’s most sophisticated artificial brain to date.
The universe may be structured a lot like the human brain and even the internet, and similar laws may govern its growth.
Scientists have examined newly-discovered photographs of Albert Einstein's brain, and discovered several unusual features that they say may help explain his genius.
Complex brains evolved much earlier than previously believed, the discovery of a 520-million-year-old fossilized arthropod has shown.
University of Sydney researchers have shown that brainless slime molds can remember where they've been and navigate a maze using excreted chemicals as a memory system.
UK scientists at the Universities of Sheffield and Sussex have kicked off an ambitious project to produce the first accurate computer model of a honey bee brain.

The neuroscience professor who three years ago succeeded in storing information in slices of brain tissue has now been able to do the same thing for different types of memory.
A newly-discovered protein in the semen of all mammals - including humans - prompts females to ovulate through a direct effect on the brain.
A new device can enable people who are completely unable to speak or move to manage unscripted back-and-forth conversation.
Neurologists have modeled the damage caused to a man's brain when a three-foot metal bar was driven through his head - over 160 years after the accident happened.
