The dynamic functional connectivity of the brain and the fMRI: an overview of analytical strategies

Resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) is a method of functional brain imaging (i.e., the measurement of the aspect of a brain area by images) that can be used to evaluate regional interactions that occur when a subject is resting. The fMRI has highlighted the rich structure of brain activity in absence of a task or stimulus. […]

A computer system that can simulate the brain

Scientists from Stanford University have generated a model capable of simulating brain activity (Benjamin BV et al). It’s capable of simulating a million neurons with billions of synaptic connections. The amount of power required is similar to that necessary for running a tablet computer. They’re calling the system Neurogrid. It’s composed of 16 Neurocore chips that […]
