The enigmas of language 

Images of the brain refute a theory of the 60s on the domain of language

A region of the brain that extends through both hemispheres, the planum temporale, is larger in the left than in the right hemisphere. The finding was linked in the 1960s with the hosting of language processing in the left hemisphere, but today European researchers show that this asymmetry is not a marker of language lateralization Leer más

Commission proposes to invest EUR 1 billion

Europe plans to invest in building a a world-class European supercomputers infrastructure

European scientists and industry increasingly process their data outside the EU because their needs are not matched by the computation time or computer performance available in the EU. This lack of independence threatens privacy, data protection, commercial trade secrets, and ownership of data in particular for sensitive applications. A new legal and funding structure shall acquire, build and deploy across Europe a world-class High-Performance Computing (HPC) infrastructure Leer más

Towards a more sophisticated brain

Low cost android´ to study the brain

The two main pitfalls of robots which imitate the human body are their control and the difficulty encountered when manufacturing them in a cost-effective manner. Researchers from the MoCoTi European project have designed the prototype of an android which learns how to actuate its own limbs and can be easily duplicated. The device, formed of an artificial brain which controls a tendon-driven robotic arm, might be the first step towards low cost humanoid robotics. Leer más
