Student researchers capture specific thought processes in short-term memory with simple EEG electrodes.
It sounds like something a snake-oil salesman might peddle you, but by popping a pill, you could become a real life virtuoso.
Scientists have successfully erased bad memories (and only bad memories) in meth addict mice.
Like something straight out of science fiction, MIT neuroscientists have successfully implanted false memories into the brains of mice.
Study shows chewing gum helps you focus on tasks requiring continuous monitoring.
Everything in your computer is more or less 2D. You've got graphics cards, processors, and memory that are all effectively silicon pancakes. IBM thinks that's all just a big waste of a dimension, and they're working commercial deployment of a decidedly three-dimensional Hybrid Memory Cube.
Remember the last time you walked into a room and forgot what you were there for? Absurd lack of parallelism aside, it's something we all experience, and apparently it isn't just some random occurrence. A team of researchers in the state of Indiana say there's a bona fide, scientific reason for it.
Before you go out and buy a fancy and expensive new computer with an SSD and a bunch of DRAM inside it, take a minute and listen to HP explain how they're going to have a new technology competing against flash memory in a year and a half, and they're planning on rendering DRAM and SRAM obsolete by 2015.
It's only been in the last few years that things like mental pictures and memories as signals in our brain have become accessible, measurable, and even recordable. An article in Nature this week reveals how memories are actually quantized into little sub-second chunks, and the researchers did it by 'teleporting' rats.
So, you think spending all day on the Internet hasn't changed the way your brain works? Think again! A new study has shown that using the Internet affects how we remember things.
