Raised blood pressure and diabetes alter brain structure to slow thinking speed and memory

In a new study published neuroscientists at Oxford University have found that raised blood pressure and diabetes in mid-life alter brain structure to slow thinking speed and memory. Looking at results from 22,000 volunteers in the UK Biobank who underwent brain scanning, the scientists found that raised blood pressure and diabetes significantly impaired the brain’s […]

Computer System Predicts what a Person is Thinking and Displays it as an Image

A group of researchers from the University of Helsinki, Finland, have developed a technique based on EEG data, brain-computer interface technology, and artificial intelligence capable of predicting what a person sees by interpreting brain signals generated at the moment of seeing. The system – called neuroadaptive generative modelling – works via complex interactions between human […]
