Do Neural Networks Get Fooled by Visual Illusions?News
A convolutional neural network is a type of artificial neural network in which the neurons are organized into receptive fields in a very similar way to neurons in the visual cortex of a biological brain. A new study examines the phenomenon of visual illusions in convolutional networks compared to their effect on human visionREAD MORE
Researchers discovered that a small cluster of neurons within the brain is responsible for controlling the body’s immune response and the release of cytokines, which leads to inflammation in the body.
Researchers have uncovered additional complexities behind mechanical allodynia – the sensation of pain from innocuous stimuli, such as light touch.
Baycrest scientists are pioneering the use of individualized brain stimulation therapy to treat aphasia in recovering stroke patients.READ MORE
Sleep is crucial for consolidating our memories, and sleep deprivation has long been known to interfere with learning and memory. Now a new study shows that getting only half a night's sleep - as many medical workers and military personnel often do - hijacks the brain's ability to unlearn fear-related memories.READ MORE
Researchers have developed a new targeted approach to prevent a toxicity seen in the sensory neurons of dorsal root ganglia after gene therapy to treat neurological disorders.READ MORE
Synapses are essentially the connections between neurons, transmitting information from one cell to the other. Astrocytes are star-shaped cells that form the glue-like framework of the brain. They are one kind of cell called glia, which is Greek for "glue."READ MORE
A new lens on visual neurons is laying the groundwork for a more complete "family tree" of the mammalian brain. A study has revealed a new categorization of mouse neurons that relies on multiple types of data drawn from each individual cell.
By monitoring a well-replicated biomarker associated with reward, a study by neuroscientists provides evidence that the old adage, "There's no place like home," has its roots deep in the brain.READ MORE
Researchers have described how the presence of brain metastases causes acute cerebrovascular dysfunction from the early stages of the disease. The researchers demonstrated a method to return cerebrovascular flow to normal.READ MORE
