Synchronized brainwaves...
 
The human mind can rapidly absorb and analyze new information as it flits from thought to thought. These quickly changing brain states may be encoded by synchronization of brain waves across different brain regions, according to a new study from MIT neuroscientists.

The researchers found that as monkeys learn to categorize different patterns of dots, two brain areas involved in learning — the prefrontal cortex and the striatum — synchronize their brain waves to form new communication circuits.
MIT study finds neurons that hum together encode new information.

Breakthrough in #neuroscience as paralysed man becomes first to use power of thought to move hand

Summary:
Last week we wrote an article on the revolution in #neuroscience that everybody seems to be missing. The revolution took another step today, as a  young man Mr Buckhart has become the first patient to move his hand using the power of thought.

Three decades ago, engineers at GE research labs in Niskayuna, NY, built one of the first magnetic resonance machines and peered inside a colleague’s head. The result was the world’s first MRI image of the human brain. “This was an exciting...

Technological advancements in neuroscience produced (new) concepts and procedures like: Neural Network Computing, Cognition & Neural Interfaces lead to computer analysis detecting emotions & moods.

"Extended Cognition and Neural Interfaces.Neural network computing will lead to improvements in computer vision and analysis, such as detecting emotions and moods, which may have safety and security applications. Extended cognition involves more direct connection to people’s brains, allowing mood, thought patterns and information to be altered in the brain. Neural interfaces get information out of people’s brains more efficiently, ultimately allowing a machine-enabled form of telepathy."

The Social Psychology of Nerve Cells

Full article at http://goo.gl/MNxvvC.

The functional organization of the central nervous system depends upon a precise architecture and connectivity of distinct types of neurons. Multiple cell types are present within any brain structure, but the rules governing their positioning, and the molecular mechanisms mediating those rules, have been relatively unexplored.

The research is in PNAS. (full access paywall)

Scientists have evidence that beats in the brain — in the form of rhythmic electrical pulses — are involved in everything from memory to motion. And music can help when those rhythms go wrong.

Excellent images from the domain of the healthy mind...
 
New great Psy wallpapers here
A colleague of mine collected some great Psychology wallpapers.
If you want to change your desktop and want to feel more "psychologist" I suggest you to:
- go to http://blog.giordanochristian.com/2014/05/wallpaper-psy-10-bellissimi-sfondi-di.html 
- scroll down unti lyou find Download: wallpaper_di_psicologia_0
- this is the link to click to get the zip file

I like this one.
And you? What did you choose?
Enjoy!!!

PS: if you have any Psy wallpaper to suggest write the link here in the comments!
