Researchers Create New Prototype of the Brain’s Real-Life Neural Networks

Scientists have created a new paradigm of how data deep in the brain could travel from one network to another ​and how these neuronal network bundles self-improve with time. The team – comprised of researchers from the Cyber-Physical Systems Group at the USC Viterbi School of Engineering and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign – has titled the paper “Network Science Characteristics of Brain-Derived Neuronal Cultures Deciphered From Quantitative Phase Imaging Data,” which is believed to be the first research to examine this self-optimization event in vitro neuronal networks. Uncertainty…

How Stress Changes the Brain and What You Can Do to Overturn the Damage

​Stress has become a rather normal part of our daily lives, and research has found that overcoming stressful events can actually make us more resilient. But when the stress is severe or chronic, it needs to be treated immediately. That is because repeated stress can have a massive impact on our brain, making us vulnerable to a number of both physical and psychological problems. Mood, Cognition, and Behavior​ Repeated stress is a key trigger for constant inflammation in the body. Chronic inflammation can lead to a number of health issues, such as…
