Early-Warning for Seizures Could Be a Game-Changer for Epilepsy Patients

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, information science, mathematics, neuroscience

A new mathematical algorithm examines data from EEG and brain implants to learn each epilepsy patient’s unique brain pattern signatures. The system can predict the onset of a seizure within an hour, allowing the patient to take necessary interventions.

Memory Without a Brain: How a Single Cell Slime Mold Makes Smart Decisions

Posted by in categories: futurism, neuroscience

How a single cell slime mold makes smart decisions without a central nervous system. Having a memory of past events enables us to make smarter decisions about the future. Researchers at the Max-Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization (MPI-DS) and the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have now identified how the slime mold Physarum polycephalum saves memories – although it has no nervous system.

Reactivating aging stem cells in the brain

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension, neuroscience

As people get older, their neural stem cells lose the ability to proliferate and produce new neurons, leading to a decline in memory function. Researchers at the University of Zurich have now discovered a mechanism linked to stem cell aging—and how the production of neurons can be reactivated.
