Scientists Unveil Unprecedented “Live” View Into the Brain’s Complexity

Posted by in categories: computing, neuroscience

The human brain, with its intricate network of approximately 86 billion neurons, is arguably among the most complex specimens scientists have ever encountered. It holds an immense, yet currently immeasurable, wealth of information, positioning it as the pinnacle of computational devices.

Grasping this level of intricacy is challenging, making it essential for us to employ advanced technologies that can decode the minute, intricate interactions happening within the brain at microscopic levels. Thus, imaging emerges as a pivotal instrument in the realm of neuroscience.

The new imaging and virtual reconstruction technology developed by Johann Danzl’s group at ISTA is a big leap in imaging brain activity and is aptly named LIONESS – Live Information Optimized Nanoscopy Enabling Saturated Segmentation. LIONESS is a pipeline to image, reconstruct, and analyze live brain tissue with a comprehensiveness and spatial resolution not possible until now.

Solar sails were first demonstrated in space by the Planetary Society’s LightSail 2 mission, which raised a small CubeSat’s orbit by 1.9 miles (3.2 km) using only the propulsive force of photons, or light beams, from the Sun.

A single gene mutation may have made us smarter than Neanderthals

Posted by in categories: genetics, neuroscience

Once we fully we understand intelligence it could be essentially increased to nearly infinite levels once everything is quantified like this article talks about 😗😁.

Modern humans have a gene mutation that boosts the growth of neurons in the brain neocortex, a brain region associated with higher intelligence.

For the First Time Ever, Lab-Grown Brain Tissue Spontaneously Creates Human-Like Brain Waves

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, neuroscience

The recreation of the human brain is giving clues to essentially how we engineer a super brain someday 😀.

Nobody’s quite sure what it means yet. But we’re sure that it’s important.

Science Fiction Meets Neuro-Reality: Organoids to Rebuild the Brain

Posted by in categories: bioengineering, biotech/medical, computing, neuroscience

This is leading to even better brain engineering 👏 🙌 👌 😀 😄.

Computer-augmented brains, cures to blindness, and rebuilding the brain after injury all sound like science fiction. Today, these disruptive technologies aren’t just for Netflix, “Terminator,” and comic book fodder — in recent years, these advances are closer to reality than some might realize, and they have the ability to revolutionize neurological care.

Neurologic disease is now the world’s leading cause of disability, and upwards of 11 million people have some form of permanent neurological problem from traumatic brain injuries and stroke. For example, if a traumatic brain injury has damaged the motor cortex — the region of the brain involved in voluntary movements — patients could become paralyzed, without hope of regaining full function. Or some stroke patients can suffer from aphasia, the inability to speak or understand language, due to damage to the brain regions that control speech and language comprehension.
