Her CAREER project uses the power of machine learning to address the challenges of high data dimensionality and limited sample sizes in clinical neuroscience.
Scientists discover a ‘push-pull’ dynamic between the brain’s hemispheres during high-risk betting.
Are you that holiday shopper rushing from store to store? Your habits may be rooted in theories of ‘optimal foraging,’ experts find.
Findings could improve treatments for humans affected by attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder.
Psychology Today reports that NSF has funded 18 interdisciplinary projects in neuroscience and cognitive science. Sridevi Sarma, associate professor of biomedical engineering, is part of a research effort examining human decision-making in complex environments.
In an effort to improve robotic swarming algorithms, an interdisciplinary team of scientists will study how the brain allows an animal to navigate and change its route while moving.
Hopkins neuroscientist discovers that performing a task in front of an audience triggers part of the brain associated with action and motor skills.
Imagine two Olympians who are equally trained, equally fit, equally talented. Is there a way to tell which athlete will win, and which athlete will choke? Vikram Chib, an assistant professor of biomedical engineering at Johns Hopkins, says that if he could compare their brain scans, he’d have a good idea about which one is most likely to choke under pressure.
The Science of Learning Institute at Johns Hopkins University will support six new interdisciplinary projects with two-year seed grants. This is the fifth round of seed grants for the institute, which launched in 2013 to foster better understanding of all levels of learning. “Our latest round of grants continues to showcase the highly innovative and intensely cross-disciplinary collaborations […]
