Brain Computation Is Organized via Power-of-Two-Based Permutation Logic

The Theory of Connectivity proposes that the origin of intelligence is rooted in a power-of-two-based permutation logic, producing specific-to-general cell-assembly architecture capable of generating specific perceptions and memories, as well as generalized knowledge and flexible actions. Here ...

Deep learning assisting clinicians to diagnose insomnia

Sleep analysis suffers from a lack of automated monitoring and diagnostic tools. Therefore, the results of this study are promising, because using deep learning on EEG they were able to accurately differentiate between 42 insomniac patients and 41 healthy controls. A set of 57 EEG features was ...

Resting-state connectivity biomarkers define neurophysiological subtypes of depression

A recently published study defined novel subtypes of depression that transcend current diagnostic boundaries and may be useful for predicting therapeutic responsiveness. They show by using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) in a large multisite sample (n = 1,188), that patients with ...
