The use of computer vision could offload low-value work better suited to machines, augmenting rather than replacing clinicians.
An AI-based robotics system could help predict and prevent falls.
What are the consequence of losing so much sleep?
“In many ways, we are flying blind in our discussions about artificial intelligence and lack the data we need to credibly evaluate activity.”
Statistics could reshape obstetrics.
The web of neurons that make up the brain is an apt metaphor for a network of cities — only the travelers are people, not electrical signals.

Research by neuroscientists at Stanford suggests that the neurons responsible for maintaining maps in the brain of the physical environment also incorporate mental states such as goals or...
Brian Wandell and his group looked at 24 brain regions to see how the composition changed from age 7 to 83. The regions in red changed the most, regions in blue changed the least.
Ketamine has been used for decades as an anesthetic, but researchers are exploring its potential as a treatment for severe forms of mental illnesses like OCD and bipolar disorder.
Resting neural stem cells (nuclei shown in blue) accumulate large protein aggregates (pink) in and around storage compartments called lysosomes (green).
