When reading, people are not only able to predict the next word, but also the words’ grammatical properties. This allows us to read faster. The findings could help with the development of new neural networks focused on natural language processing.
A new mathematical approach is able to predict the severity of autism traits from brain activity data.
Findings contradict the assumption the visual system categorizes objects based on simple features alone.
Even when people adjust their view as a result of social influence, their brain activity shows traces of prior disagreements.
Researchers speak out about how studying the brain has led to significant advances in robot development.
Financial losses evoke neuroplasticity alterations to the auditory cortex, a new study reports.
The brain suppresses the perception of the heartbeat, affecting our perception of other sensory stimuli. Researchers propose the brain’s sensitivity to sensory stimuli depends on the cardiac cycle and the brain’s perception of it.
NMDA receptor hypofunction is involved in the reduction of sleep spindles and delta oscillations, which appear in the brain during deep natural sleep. Findings confirm the role NMDA receptors play in sleep disorders that accompany psychotic states.
