Stanford bioengineers create circuit board modeled on the human brain

Stanford bioengineers have developed a new circuit board modeled on the human brain, possibly opening up new frontiers in robotics and computing. For all their sophistication, computers pale in comparison to the brain. The modest cortex of the mouse, for instance, operates 9,000 times faster than a personal computer simulation of its functions.

Human brains 'hard-wired' to link what we see with what we do

Your brain's ability to instantly link what you see with what you do is down to a dedicated information 'highway', suggests new UCL-led research.

These computer chips mimic the human brain

No computer works as efficiently as the human brain – so much so that building an artificial brain is the goal of many scientists.

Let your brain control your cellphone

Samsung is reportedly spending R&D money on developings ways to control a phone by the human brain.

US maps the human brain

The US government has launched a long-running research project aimed at mapping the human brain.

Google neural network simulates human brain

Google researchers have built a neural network comprised of 16,000 computer processors in an effort to simulate the human brain.
