Children with ADHD seem more sensitive to repeated experiences of failure
Probabilistic neural decoding allows for the estimation of the goal distance from neuronal activity imaged from the parietal cortex. Neurons could predict the goal distance even during sound omissions. The prediction became more accurate when sound was...
In a collaboration of the Neural Computation Unit and the Optical Neuroimaging Unit at the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University (OIST), Dr. Akihiro Funamizu, Prof. Bernd Kuhn, and Prof. Kenji Doya analyzed the brain activity of...
The research team of Dr. Akihiro Funamizu, Prof. Bernd Kuhn, and Prof. Kenji Doya from OIST built a virtual reality system in which a mouse can be made to believe it was walking around freely, but in reality, it was fixed under a microscope. In this...
Dr. Akihiro Funamizu, Prof. Bernd Kuhn, and Prof. Kenji Doya analyzed brain activity in the parietal cortex of mice as they approached a target under interrupted sensory inputs. A depiction of the location of the parietal cortex...
