A team of neuroscientists at Dartmouth College has shown that different individuals’ brains use the same, common neural code to recognize complex visual images. The paper, “A common, high-dimensional model of the neural representational space in human ventral temporal cortex,” is in the October 20, 2011, issue of the journal, Neuron. The lead author of […]

Future microchips may have only one type of component, capable of rewiring itself to do different jobs. Researchers from Northwestern University in the US have developed a material that can radically change its electronic properties. A resistor made from it could become a transistor or a diode, according to the report in the journal Nature […]
