Engineers at MIT have designed an artificial synapse in such a way that they can precisely control the strength of an electric current flowing across it, similar to the way ions flow between neurons. Read the rest of this entry…

Neurotechnologies have reached to a point of interacting with the physical, digital and social world. That fundamental truth has opened a wealth of interest in neuroscience, in leadership sectors far beyond medicine.

The concept of functional connectivity is central for understanding the synergistic behavior of brain regions which form distributed networks. With the fast advancement of neuroimaging techniques and the subsequent development of sophisticated signal-analytic methodologies, connectivity can nowadays be assessed in various ways. Often, the descriptive power of graphs is exploited by turning connectivity measurements into graph topologies.
