The Deep Neural Network of AI That Misleads Results

While we can’t trust AI to be perfect, it turns out that sometimes we can’t trust ourselves with AI either.

Mandatory Fortification of Corn Masa Flour May Help To Prevent Birth Defects in Hispanic Population

Mandatory fortification of corn masa flour products with folic acid, as is already the case with enriched cereal grains, may achieve more substantial prevention of neural tube birth defects among the Hispanic population.

Discovery May Lead to Improvements for Spinal Cord Injuries

New research suggests that the immune system’s ability to respond to spinal cord injuries diminishes with age – and identifies potential avenues to improve that response and help patients heal.

Brain Stimulation During Deep Sleep May Boost Recall Memory

Researchers have long suspected that a good night’s sleep can improve our memory. The mechanism behind this link has remained unclear. A new study has provided records from inside the brain that support one of the leading theories of memory consolidation during sleep.

Links Between Cognition and Personality Identified by Massive Meta-Analysis

In a new landmark study, University of Minnesota research shows surprising links between human cognition and personality — pillars of human individuality that shape who we are and how we interact with the world.
