Science Daily Mind & Brain


( Just believing that an AI is helping boosts your performance
May 13th 2024, 15:05

Sometimes it seems like an AI is helping, but the benefit is actually a placebo effect -- people performing better simply because they expect to be doing so -- according to new research. The study also shows how difficult it is to shake people's trust in the capabilities of AI systems.

( Cats purrfectly demonstrate what it takes to trust robots
May 13th 2024, 15:05

Would you trust a robot to look after your cat? New research suggests it takes more than a carefully designed robot to care for your cat, the environment in which they operate is also vital, as well as human interaction.

( Potential power and pitfalls of harnessing artificial intelligence for sleep medicine
May 13th 2024, 12:34

A new article highlights how artificial intelligence stands on the threshold of making monumental contributions to the field of sleep medicine. Through a strategic analysis, researchers examined advancements in AI within sleep medicine and spotlighted its potential in revolutionizing care in three critical areas: clinical applications, lifestyle management, and population health. The committee also reviewed barriers and challenges associated with using AI-enabled technologies.

( Study reveals patients with brain injuries who died after withdrawal of life support may have recovered
May 13th 2024, 10:52

Analysis of 1,392 patients with traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) found that some patients for whom life support was withdrawn may have survived and recovered some level of independence a few months after injury. Families are often asked to make decision to withdraw life support within 72 hours of a brain injury, and the new study suggests delaying decisions may be beneficial for some patients.

( Study traces an infectious language epidemic
May 13th 2024, 10:52

A computer scientist has shown the power of language to predict harm -- this time to the nation's health.

( What makes a memory? It may be related to how hard your brain had to work
May 13th 2024, 10:52

The human brain filters through a flood of experiences to create specific memories. Why do some of the experiences in this deluge of sensory information become 'memorable,' while most are discarded by the brain? A computational model and behavioral study developed by Yale scientists suggests a new clue to this age-old question, they report in the journal Nature Human Behavior.

( Eye care: Taking electroretinography to the next level with a soft multi-electrode system
May 13th 2024, 10:51

Electroretinography (ERG), which involves measuring electric potential in the retina, is a powerful tool for diagnosing and studying ocular diseases. However, multi-electrode systems for ERG are usually built on top of hard, uncomfortable contact lenses. To address this issue, researchers have developed an innovative multi-electrode ERG system built on top of commercial soft contact lenses. Demonstrating excellent performance and biocompatibility, the proposed system will help push the envelope of what is possible with ERG.

( Team studies factors related to a sense of economic insecurity in older adults
May 13th 2024, 10:51

Researchers undertook a study of older adults to examine the connection between a sense of economic insecurity and a person's participation in social activities.
