"I have no idea how that happened, but it's a thrill to share cool things about the brain with people all over the world. I am so proud of MIT for starting the online learning revolution 20 years ago with OCW!" ~Nancy Kanwisher
Scientists have long searched in vain for a class of brain cells that could explain the visceral flash of recognition that we feel when we see a very familiar face, like that of our grandmothers. CBMM's Winfrich Friewald and colleagues have discovered...
The Italian Scientists and Scholars in North America Foundation annually awards the Young Investigator Awards in various disciplines to outstanding, early-career Italian researchers working in the United States or Canada.
Simultaneous measurement of neural rhythms and spikes across five brain areas reveals how propofol induces unconsciousness. Read the eLife publication about this discovery with authors including CBMM Research Collaborator Prof. Emery N. Brown.
Computer models that mimic humans’ extraordinary hearing abilities could improve treatments for hearing loss. MIT neuroscientist Josh McDermott hopes to develop computational models that can perform sophisticated auditory tasks as well as the human brain.
