Human-like brain helps robot out of a maze
10 December 2021, Eindhoven University of Technology
Eindhoven University of Technology
“A maze is a popular device among psychologists to assess the learning capacity of mice or rats. But how about robots? Can they learn to successfully navigate the twists and turns of a labyrinth? Now, researchers at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) and the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, have proven they can. Their robot bases its decisions on the very system humans use to think and act: the brain. The study, which was published in Science Advances, paves the way to exciting new applications of neuromorphic devices in health and beyond.”
Brain Chip Combines Electrodes and Microfluidics
14 December 2021, IEEE Spectrum
Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KIST)
“Neurons use electrical pulses and chemicals to communicate with each other. Analyzing both is critical for studying brain function and spotting brain diseases, but today’s implants can measure only one or the other.
Researchers in Korea have now made a multifunctional chip that can measure both electrical charges and neurochemicals in the brain, and can also inject drugs in real time. They tested the chip, which is smaller than a U.S. quarter-dollar coin, in live mice. “
