Decoding the Human Brain: Charting the Next Big Territory in BCI

Decoding the Human Brain: Charting the Next Big Territory in BCI Human brain is a peculiar organ, forever keeping scientists hooked. A group of researchers from Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences Leipzig recently conducted an interesting study. In these efforts, they were joined by researchers from Public University of Navarre, and TU Berlin. About the Study: Studies show that brain activity occurs even when people think

Researchers Prove Prospects of Meditation

When we are kids, we dream of a big world for ourselves. This usually means being the best fighter pilot out there or a ton of other dreams. However, as we grow older, the real world humbles most of us! Then we start seeking a path of achieving perfection by improving concentration and making ourselves less error-prone. Researchers from University of Michigan have proven that meditation can be the difference

Bifacial Solar Modules:  What’s New under the Sun?

Harvesting solar power is the need of the hour. But, operators, developers and financiers face challenges with gains associated with harvesting activity. Thus, it does not come as a surprise that efforts are directed at lowering costs and improving profits. And, going by recent results, the hard work is set to pay. What’s the Hype About: Bifacial Solar Modules are ready to enter the world. And, the breakout modules have

Trucking Alliance Fights For More Technology in Drug Testing

Technology is expected to transform commercial trucking is we know it today. Automation is the hot-rod in this industry. From automation in driving, to monitoring, to detecting faulty components, automation is simply unescapable today. And, the director of Trucking Alliance is fighting for more changes in the industry. According to Lane Kidd, the managing director, there are over 300,000 truck driver on the road today that will fail the drug

Scientists Identify the Memory Storing Neurons in Humans

Scientists at Columbia University School of Engineering and Applied Science have pinpointed the specific neurons responsible for memory. To locate these neurons, neuro engineers did an in-depth study of the patients with electrode implants in the brain. To derive the result, the researcher took the help of virtual reality technology. They examined the patient’s brain activities while they were looking at VR memory video. The study allowed the viewers to

Batteries can Now Store Renewable Energy

The exhaustion of fossil fuels in the future is inevitable. To save people from energy crisis scientists are developing devices that can use renewable sources of energy. Energy from sun, wind, and water can produce tremendous power that can last for a lifetime. However, the availability of these sources has its own limitations. For instance, solar energy is only available only in the day. Whereas, during the night user has

 Voice Technology

Objects and human beings have had long-lasting affair. Sophisticated software and simple tools all comprise extensions of human bodies. The creation of sophisticated tools is a mark to trace human well-being and progress. As tools are so vital for our prosperity and existence, the techniques of interfacing have gained substantial significance. The interface between machines and humans is very important that as soon as a brand new medium is developed

Supercomputers

Scientists from Trinity College Dublin have found a way to break water molecule with little energy use. This presented a major obstacle to the discovery of sustainable energy. With the new discovery, the doors for creating a renewable energy with no wastage is wide open for further research. So, does this mean we will be able to smell a really-ecofriendly coffee in the next year? Maybe not! The researchers have

Wildfires are getting worse. Can new technology make us safer

Authorities Pin Large Hope on Technologies to Fight Wildfires The reasons for wildfires can be varied but the devastation and loss they bring is massive. The recent case in point is the wildfires in California in 2018. They burnt thousands of acres of lands, killed scores of people, and led hundreds of people homeless. The repercussions are uglier causing community-wide upheaval. Recently, concerned authorities have pinning large hopes on technology

Innovation in Microscopy Promises Glowing Prize for Researchers

A team of researchers from UCLA have found a new technique to expand the capabilities of fluorescence microscopy. The new technique will enable scientists to identify living and tissues with a glowing mechanism with the help of 3D imaging. The new techniques uses dyes which glow under special lighting and turn two-dimensional images into stacks of virtual three-dimensional slices. The study published in Nature Methods can be a new lease
