Researchers have built a synthetic synapse in work that could one day lead to a fully-functioning artificial brain.
Mice that are low on the totem pole have a tough life. It turns out that bullying has some measurable effects on the brain chemistry of mice.
The path to combining man with machine into a real cyborg may be a little bit clearer thanks to new scientific research.
A new study from The University of Michigan has found that after being disrupted, mouse brains are able to shift important functions tied to learning and memory.
The debate over whether cellphones affect the brain rumbles on. The latest study shows a measurable effect on brain activity - but one which may or may not be harmful, say the team.
University of Sydney scientists say they're on the verge of creating an 'electronic thinking cap' - a way of stimulating the brain to provide flashes of insight.
People with conservative views have a larger amygdala, a primitive part of the brain associated with fear, new research shows.
A medical team believes it's developed an effective vaccine against the most common type of brain cancer, and is about to try it out on human subjects.
People who are haunted by visions of war and scenes of violence sometimes wish they could remove the bad memories from their minds. Medical researchers at Johns Hopkins University think that it may be possible someday.
A quick blast of electricity to one region of the brain can make a person better at math for up to six months, say neuroscientists at Oxford University.
New research funded by the National Institutes of Health shows that people can manipulate complex visual images on a computer screen using only the mind.
Despite having a brain the size of a grass seed, bumblebees can solve a complex mathematical problem which keeps computers busy for days.
In a initiative being compared to the Human Genome Project, neuroscientists are attempting to map all the major circuits in the human brain.
University of Utah scientists have demonstrated that planting microelectrodes on the surface of the brain can allow people to 'speak' with their thoughts.
Telling a robot do do something? That is so early 21st century. There's a new team of scientists working on a computer interface that could send commands to a robot simply by thinking about them.
Israeli cientists have developed an implantable chip that delivers precise stimulation to control disorders such as depression or Parkinson's disease.
A team of researchers from Japan and Michigan Technological University has built a massively parallel molecular computer.
Japanese scientists are preparing to develop "mind-reading" robots and consumer electronics that can be controlled by thought.
A UC Berkeley optometrist had warned that over-exposure to 3D technology could cause a small number of people to suffer from vision fatigue.
