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.
By developing machine-learning models that can review protein information culled from genome databases, researchers found relatively simple design rules for building artificial proteins. When the team constructed these artificial proteins in the lab, they found that they performed chemical processes so well that they rivaled those found in nature.READ MORE
Using a combination of cell imaging experiments and mathematical modeling, a team of researchers has started to unravel the mechanisms behind tetraploidy – a chromosomal abnormality that is often found in malignant tumors.READ MORE

Processing vocal recordings of infected but asymptomatic people reveals potential indicators of COVID-19.
Analysis of data from the COVID Symptom Study app, led by researchers from King’s College London, reveals that there are six distinct ‘types’ of COVID-19, each distinguished by a particular cluster of symptoms.
In a study with implications from oncology to ecology, researchers have shown that data science can unlock subtle clues about the individual origins of collective behavior.READ MORE
