New Mathematical Model Shows How Our Brains Make Complex Decisions

by David Nield, Science Alert

Getting to the bottom of understanding how our brains work is a fascinating challenge for scientists, and new research promises to shed more light on the inner workings of our minds – through a complex mathematics model. Scientists in the UK say they’ve constructed “the first biologically realistic mathematical model” that matches the way the brain makes complex decisions.

To Make Sense of the Present, Brains May Predict the Future

by Jordana Cepelewicz, Quanta Magazine

A controversial theory suggests that perception, motor control, memory and other brain functions all depend on comparisons between ongoing actual experiences and the brain’s modeled expectations.

Last month, the artificial intelligence company DeepMind introduced new software that can take a single image of a few objects in a virtual room and, without human guidance, infer what the three-dimensional scene looks like from entirely new vantage points. Given just a handful of such pictures, the system, dubbed the Generative Query Network, or GQN, can successfully model the layout of a simple, video game-style maze.

Are Male and Female Brains Biologically Different?

by Fatima Sheikh, The Tech Inside

The research has concluded that there is no such thing as a female brain or a male brain. Shocked? Yes, this response is what I expect. The researchers for many years have conducted surmountable numbers of MRI which conclude that when it comes to brains there is no difference between the male minds and female minds. Let us explain his and more to you.
