Researchers at the University of Texas at Austin have developed a decoder that uses information from fMRI scans to reconstruct human thoughts. Jerry Tang, Amanda LeBel, Shailee Jain and Alexander Huth have published a paper describing their work on the preprint server bioRxiv.Daily top 2022-10-26. The energy resolution in hyperspectral imaging techniques has always been an important matter in data interpretation. In many cases, spectral information is distorted by elements such as instruments’ broad optical transfer function, and electronic high frequency noises. In the past decades, advances in artificial intelligence methods have provided robust tools to better study sophisticated system artifacts in spectral data and take steps towards removing these artifacts from the experimentally obtained data. This study evaluates the capability of a recently developed deep convolutional neural network script, EELSpecNet, in restoring the reality of a spectral data. The particular strength of the deep neural networks is to remove multiple instrumental artifacts such as random energy jitters of the source, signal convolution by the optical transfer function and high frequency noise at once using a single training data set. Here, EELSpecNet performance in reducing noise, and restoring the original reality of the spectra is evaluated for near zero-loss electron energy loss spectroscopy signals in Scanning Transmission Electron Microscopy. EELSpecNet demonstrates to be more efficient and more robust than the currently widely used Bayesian statistical method, even in harsh conditions (e.g. high signal broadening, intense high frequency noise).

Scientists have decoded visual images from a dog’s brain, offering a first look at how the canine mind reconstructs what it sees. The Journal of Visualized Experiments published the research done at Emory University. Researchers are pursuing age-old questions about the nature of thoughts—and learning how to read them.Scientists have decoded visual images from a dog’s brain, offering a first

. Perceived images are hard to decode from fMRI scans. But a new kind of neural network approach now makes it easier and more accurate.Researchers have demonstrated how to decode what the human brain is seeing by using artificial intelligence to interpret fMRI scans from people watching videos, representing a sort of mind-reading technology.Making news this month is a study by researchers the Advanced Telecommunications Research Institute International (ATR) and Kyoto University in Japan, having built a neural network that not only reads but re-creates what is in your mind.

An algorithm can reconstruct pictures a person is looking at from brain scans, could one day be used to tell what someone is thinking. People with chronic pain who use medical cannabis have a higher risk for heart rhythm disorders versus nonusers, according to a study presented at the European Society of Cardiology Congress 2022, held from Aug. 26 to 29 in Barcelona, Spain.Measurement(s) Brain activity measurement • Brain structure Technology Type(s) Magnetoencephalography • Magnetic Resonance Imaging Factor Type(s) Audiovisual movie Sample Characteristic – Organism Homo sapiens. If you’re a senior and walking to the mailbox takes longer than it used to, new research suggests you might want to ask your doctor to check your thinking skills.

The use of nitrous oxide ‘cracking ‘ technology in the labor ward

In a case report published in Anaesthesia Reports, a 35-year-old woman who is herself an anesthetist describes her own use of special equipment to recover and break down nitrous oxide used for pain relief during her labor, saying it is mostly easy to use. She also discusses the positive feeling of reducing harm to the environment.For many women, especially those who have had children, leakage of urine is a common complaint.
