Exposure to Trauma in Infancy Alters the Brain, but Can We Reverse It?

Weizmann Institute researchers reveal in mice how exposure to trauma in infancy alters the brain; they show that early treatment to reverse these changes is vital for rehabilitation.

Ultrasound Imaging Is a Window Into the Brain

A new study is a proof-of-concept that functional ultrasound technology can be the basis for an "online" brain–machine interface, which reads brain activity, deciphers its meaning with decoders programmed with machine learning and consequently controls a computer that can accurately predict movement.

Sleeping Brain Waves May Offer Protection to Epilepsy

Slow waves that usually only occur in the brain during sleep are also present during wakefulness in people with epilepsy and may protect against increased brain excitability associated with the condition, finds a new study led by researchers at UCL.

AI Model Predicts Long-Term Outcomes in Very Premature Babies

Researchers at UMC Utrecht have developed an AI model to predict long-term outcome in extremely premature babies early in life. The model can identify which infants might face intellectual disability as they grow.

Gold Has a Golden Future in Revolutionizing Wearable Devices

A research team has used gold nanowires to develop a wearable sensor device that measures two bio-signals simultaneously, underscoring the potential for gold to be used in other wearable devices.

Babies’ Brain Waves Are in Tune to Their Native Language Before Birth

Human babies pick up language at an exceptional pace during their first year of life, but it has mostly been a mystery whether exposure to language before birth primes their brains to acquire a specific language.
