Stereo vision using computing architecture inspired by the brain

Trend Technology

The Brain-Inspired Computing group at IBM Research-Almaden will be presenting at the 2018 IEEE Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR 2018) our most recent paper titled “A Low Power, High Throughput, Fully Event-Based Stereo System.” The paper describes an end-to-end stereo vision system that uses exclusively spiking neural network computation and can run on neuromorphic hardware with a live streaming spiking input. Inspired by the human vision system, it uses a cluster of I… Computer Science News | … Read more

Probiotics for the brain? Study could pave the way for anti-stress injections

Trend Technology

A recent paper shows that a particular bacterium can encourage a rodent’s brain into a state that resists inflammation, paving the way for probiotic immunizations to treat stress-related mental disorders like PSTD and anxiety. The post Probiotics for the brain? Study could pave the way for anti-stress injections appeared first on Digital Trends. … Emerging Tech – Digital Trends

Normative brain size variation and brain shape diversity in humans

Trend Technology

Brain size variation over primate evolution and human development is associated with shifts in the proportions of different brain regions. Individual brain size can vary more than twofold among typically developing humans, but the consequences of this for brain organization remain poorly understood. Using in vivo neuroimaging data from more than 3000 individuals, we find that larger human brains show greater areal expansion in distributed frontoparietal cortical networks and related subcortic… Science Express TOC RSS Feed

Tiny particles could help fight brain cancer

Trend Technology

Glioblastoma multiforme, a type of brain tumor, is one of the most difficult-to-treat cancers. Only a handful of drugs are approved to treat glioblastoma, and the median life expectancy for patients diagnosed with the disease is less than 15 months. MIT researchers have now devised a new drug-delivering nanoparticle that could offer a better way to treat glioblastoma. The particles, which carry two different drugs, are designed so that they can easily cross the blood-brain barrier a… MIT News – … Read more
