Chinese Fossils May Reveal New Human Species

According to article published in the journal PLoS may be a previously unknown human species have been identified in southern China. The bones, which represent at least five individuals, have been dated to between 11,500 and 14,500 years ago. But scientists are calling them simply the Red Deer Cave people, after one of the sites where they were unearthed. As said study co-leader Darren Curnoe from the University of New South Wales, Australia they are trying to be very careful at this stage about definitely classifying them.

The Human Brain Analogous Computer

Professor Henry Markram, intends to create the largest computer in the world, which will be analogue of the human brain. The Human Brain Project, which will be implemented at the Federal Polytechnic School of Lausanne on the shores of Lake Geneva, aims to create a carbon copy of the brain in 2023.

Brain Controlled Prosthesis

One of the biggest breakthroughs in the field of prosthetics has been made recently.The researchers could develop artificial limbs which are controlled by the brain user. Researchers are working to increase the flexibility of their prostheses.Their latest invention works in the following way: the user must consider the motion, after which the brain signals detected by sensors and transmitted to the prosthetic limb. it is impossible not to note that most amputees have lost control over the nerves. However, for restoring this control, Mr. Sullivan can use the new prosthesis. At present, the researchers at Northwestern University in the U.S.are studying different models of the brain to find out whether they can be used artificial limbs or not, according to Tech2.0.
