Researchers have a relatively good understanding of "where" and "when" the brain edits incoming information; the question is “how” does this happen. It may be that researchers at the University of Bergen have found the answer.
Cognitive neuroscience research has revealed many different aspects of the brain’s functional capacity. It has not been possible to assemble the results of the different methods used to map the brain’s activity as yet, to give researchers a complete picture of what is happening in the brain. Researchers have a relatively good understanding of part of the story, for example “where” or “when” the brain edits incoming information, but how these two aspects relate to one another has been poorly understood.
Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) is a technique whereby researchers can see the movement of blood and fluid through the brain. The movement patterns can indicate where there is activity within the brain. Another technique, called event-related potentials (ERPs), is used to measure electronic activity in the brain and gives data about how the brain processes information that is resolved temporally.

New Project SNAPSTER: Novel luminescent materials by encapsulating phosphorescent metal clusters with organic liquid crystals
Nowadays energy conversion in lighting and optoelectronic devices requires the use of rare earth oxides.
Scientists have discovered the first synthetic material that becomes thicker - at the molecular level - as it is stretched.
Researchers led by Dr Devesh Mistry from the University of Leeds discovered a new non-porous material that has unique and inherent "auxetic" stretching...
