Children with autism have structural and functional abnormalities in the brain circuit that normally makes social interaction feel rewarding, according to new Stanford research published today in Brain.
Deficits in the brain’s reward circuit are linked to social deficits in children with autism and may point the way toward better treatments, according to a new Stanford study.
Teams are taking part in a Stanford competition to train virtual musculoskeletal models with a prosthetic leg to walk and run.
Study shows improvement in students' attitudes and test scores after teachers change their own mindset — and instruction — around math.
Lukasz Kidziński hit on the idea of a competition, in which teams from around the world would compete to design artificial intelligence algorithms that would, along with virtual bodies informed by Scott Delp’s data and models, learn to walk, run and eventually navigate obstacles.
Researchers Marinka Zitnik, PhD; Monica Agrawal; and Jure Leskovec, PhD, have designed a new system to deal with the literally billions of possibilities when considering any two drugs — out of about 5,000 on the U.S. market — and one of around a thousand different side effects.

Millions of people take upwards of five medications a day, but testing the side effects of such combinations is impractical. Now, Stanford computer scientists have figured out how to predict side effects using artificial intelligence.
New Stanford research shows that sentences that frame one gender as the standard for the other can unintentionally perpetuate biases.
​When the stakes are high, how do you motivate and inspire your team?
Your brain doesn't just sits still inside your skull, it rhythmically bulges and shrinks with each heartbeat, by an amount equivalent to a bit less the width of a human hair.
