Artificial Neural Network Investigates How Decision Making Is Altered in SchizophreniaNews
Scientists have built a computer 'brain circuit', or artificial neural network, that mirrors human decision-making processes and sheds light on how circuits might be altered in psychiatric diseases, a new study published today in eLife reports.
Researchers have investigated the function of a complex mesh of muscle fibres that line the inner surface of the heart. The study, published in the journal Nature, sheds light on questions asked by Leonardo da Vinci 500 years ago, and shows how the shape of these muscles impacts heart performance and heart failure.READ MORE
A new database of 40 breast cancer cell lines aims to help researchers deepen their understanding of these cell lines and speed up the development of new gene-targeted therapies.READ MORE
According to a new study, some people with recognition disorder hemi-prosopometamophosia see distortions to the same half of a person's face regardless of how the face is viewed. The results demonstrate that our visual system standardizes all the faces we perceive using the same process, just like facial recognition algorithms.READ MORE
In modern medicine, there remains no impartial procedure that can definitively diagnose a mental illness. Experts at the University of Tokyo are combining machine learning with brain imaging tools to redefine the standard for diagnosing mental illnesses.READ MORE
People rarely use just one sense to understand the world, but robots usually only rely on vision and, increasingly, touch. Carnegie Mellon University researchers find that robot perception could improve markedly by adding another sense: hearing.
Researchers from the University of Chicago have used state-of-the-art computer simulations to identify a preexisting drug that can target Mpro, a key coronavirus enzyme that plays a central role in the virus' life cycle.READ MORE
