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
A new study finds that exercising your brain with "neurobics" before surgery can help prevent post-surgery delirium.READ MORE
Researchers have discovered a previously undescribed population of neurons that help control our eyes as they view in three-dimensional space.
New research shows that KOR receptors actually are distributed widely throughout the brain.READ MORE
A team of researchers from UTSA's Neurosciences Institute is challenging the historical belief that the organization of the cortical circuit of GABAergic neurons is exclusively local.
Researchers led by Noriyuki Sugo at Osaka University in Japan have been studying natural DNA repairmen in the developing brain. In a new study, they show that an enzyme known as Polβ prevents breaks in the DNA of specific neurons in the brain’s hippocampus soon after birth.READ MORE
A novel synthetic protein nanoparticle capable of slipping past the nearly impermeable blood–brain barrier in mice could deliver cancer-killing drugs directly to malignant brain tumors, according to a new study.READ MORE
A new study has investigated the relationship between COVID-19 and psychiatric illness. The study’s authors say that their findings suggest that a diagnosis of COVID-19 increases the risk of subsequent psychiatric illness.READ MORE
Scientists have discovered that two paralogous androgen receptor genes control social status in African cichlid fish. The finding may have applications to other species.READ MORE
