5 Amazing Things Your Brain Does While You Sleep
Sleeping for a third of a day has to have a purpose, if not, its not particularly advantageous to human evolution. Scientists have been studying sleep for decades and have come up with some answers. Here are 5 functions your brain carries out during sleep.

Brain Stimulation Restores Memory During Lapses
A team of neuroscientists at the University of Pennsylvania has shown for the first time that electrical stimulation delivered when memory is predicted to fail can improve memory function in the human brain. That same stimulation generally becomes disruptive when electrical pulses arrive during periods of effective memory function.

First long-term stabile brain implant developed based on an anti-inflammatory coating
Complex neurotechnological devices are required to directly select and influence brain waves inside the skull’s interior. Although it has become relatively easy to implement the devices, researchers are still faced with challenges when trying to keep them running properly in living organisms over time. But that could be changing now, thanks to a new method. A research team was able to create a microprobe that grows into the neural tissue without inflammation and with the help of a medicinal coa...

Electronic synapses that can learn: towards an artificial brain?
Researchers from the CNRS, Thales, and the Universities of Bordeaux, Paris-Sud, and Evry have created an artificial synapse capable of learning autonomously. They were also able to model the device, which is essential for developing more complex circuits.
