Gentle touch and the bionic eye: Using haptics to improve outcomes for people given visual prosthetics
Normal vision is essentially a spatial sense that often relies upon touch and movement during and after development, there is often a correlation between how an object looks and how it feels. Moreover, as a child's senses ...
Paddlefish sensors tuned to detect signals from zooplankton prey
Neurons fire in a synchronized bursting pattern in response to robust signals indicating nearby food.
Researchers Design Electronic Amplifier Capable of Functioning in Extreme Temperatures
(PhysOrg.com) -- Missions to space require 'warm' boxes, which protect electronic circuitry from extreme temperatures and exposure to radiation. Electrical engineering researchers at the University of Arkansas ...
Researchers identify signals triggering dendrite growth
A study in worms that are less than a millimetre long has yielded clues that may be important for understanding how nerves grow.
Random noise helps make signals clearer
Scientists have shown the energy conditions, under which a weak signal supplied to a physical system emerges as a stronger signal at the output thanks to the presence of random noise (a process known as stochastic resonance), ...
Four-wavelength integrated silicon laser for inter-processor data transmission
Fujitsu Laboratories announced the development of a four-wavelength integrated silicon laser for optical transceivers that use silicon photonics, a step toward faster data communications between processors.
Perceptual learning relies on local motion signals to learn global motion
Researchers have long known of the brain's ability to learn based on visual motion input, and a recent study has uncovered more insight into where the learning occurs.
Developing LSI for High Speed Next Generation Communication Interfaces
NEC Corp. announced today the development and successful demonstration of LSI technology for next-generation high-speed serial communication interfaces. This new technology allows inter-chip communication that is three times ...
