Brain Signal that Indicates Whether Speech Has Been Understood Discovered

Neuroscientists from Trinity College Dublin and the University of Rochester have identified a specific brain signal associated with the conversion of speech into understanding. The signal is present when the listener has understood what they have heard, but it is absent when they either did not understand, or weren't paying attention.

The research is in Current Biology. (full open access)

Android upgrades are a mess -- but if you arm yourself with knowledge, you can at least make an educated decision about what sort of experience you want (or are willing to accept).

Here's my most dismal look yet at how the top device-makers are doing:

New Neurons in the Adult Brain Are Involved in Sensory Learning

Although we have known for several years that the adult brain can produce new neurons, many questions about the properties conferred by these adult-born neurons were left unanswered. What advantages could they offer that could not be offered by the neurons generated shortly after birth?

The research is in PNAS. (full access paywall)

Separate brain systems cooperate during learning, study finds

A new study by Brown University researchers shows that two different brain systems work cooperatively as people learn. The study, published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, focused on the interplay of two very different modes of learning a new task: reinforcement learning and working memory. Reinforcement learning is an "under-the-hood" process in which people gradually learn which actions to take by processing rewards and punishments at the neural level, and then choosing the one that works best on average—even if the person is not aware of it. In contrast, working memory involves keeping previous actions and their outcomes in mind to more rapidly and flexibly improve performance. "People have largely interpreted these systems as working independently or as competing with each other in the learning process," said Michael Frank, a professor in Brown's Department of Cognitive, Linguistic and Psychological Sciences and co-author of the paper. "But we show that the two work together, with neural signals underlying working memory helping to guide those that support reinforcement learning."

Manual labor
“I've always been amused by the contention that brain work is harder than manual labor. I've never known a man to leave a desk for a muck-stick if he could avoid it.”

New Insights On the Neurobiology of Dying

A new study provides insight into the neurobiology of dying. For the study, investigators performed continuous patient monitoring following Do Not Resuscitate - Comfort Care orders in patients with devastating brain injury to investigate the mechanisms and timing of events in the brain and the circulation during the dying process.

The research is in Annals of Neurology. (full open access)
