A new study using light to target and stimulate specific neurons in lab rats trained to drink much the way human binge-drinkers do finds the rodents "flat out stopped drinking."
Mouse brains light up to track neuron activity with special genes.
To accommodate all the data needed to model the 70 million neurons that make up a mouse brain, Big Blue is using scads of the same type of memory used for PC solid-state drives.
For the first time, researchers have captured footage of a complete zebrafish brain while the animal was actively seeing.
Big Blue's new cognitive computing chips are designed to combine "digital neurons" and "on-chip synapses" and could enable applications that tackle some of the thorniest problems in computing.
What's the word on getting neurons and chips to talk to each other?
Scientists strap mouse to trackball-like contraption to study its neurons. The first virtual maze? Derived from a Quake 2 level.
Bioengineers at Stanford University have developed microchips based on the human brain that are more energy efficient and up to 9000 times faster than the typical PC.
The complex system of white matter fibres that relay information in the brain has been accurately recreated in a 3D-printed model.
