'Junk DNA' could be key to controlling fear

A piece of "junk DNA" could be the key to extinguishing fear-related memories for people struggling with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and phobia, according to a study from The University of Queensland.

Computer model helps make sense of human memory

Brains are a mazy network of overlapping circuits—some pathways encourage activity while others suppress it. While earlier studies focused more on excitatory circuits, inhibitory circuits are now understood to play an equally ...

Light up logic: Engineers perform computational logic with light

For the first time, researchers have performed logic operations with a chemical device using electric fields and ultraviolet light. The device and the pioneering methods open up research possibilities, including low-power, ...

Oxygen vacancy supported memory

A non-volatile memory keeping its digital information without power and working at the same time at the ultrahigh speed of today's dynamic random access memory (DRAM) – that is the dream of materials scientists of TU Darmstadt.

Scientists develop brain-inspired memory material

Our brain does not work like a typical computer memory storing just ones and zeroes: thanks to a much larger variation in memory states, it can calculate faster consuming less energy. Scientists of the MESA+ Institute for ...

Magnetic materials: Forging ahead with a back-to-basics approach

Scientists have recently started to explore the possibility of using an intrinsic property of the electron known as spin for processing and storing information. Magnetic fields can influence the dynamics of electron spin, ...
