 By Adam Conner-Simons | Rachel Gordon| Sep 1, 2017 @ 13:25  | CSAIL/ MIT News|  ComText, from the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, allows robots to understand contextual commands. Despite what you might see in movies, today’s robots are still very limited in what they can do. They can be great for many repetitive tasks, […]

‘Seeing’ Robot Learns Tricky Technique for Studying Brain Cells in Mammals

‘Seeing’ Robot Learns Tricky Technique for Studying Brain Cells in Mammals

By Caroline Brogan | Sep 1, 2017 @ 12:50| Imperial scientists have successfully taught robots to perform a challenging brain technique only previously mastered by a handful of humans. Whole-cell patch clamp electrophysiology, or whole-cell recording (WCR), is the gold-standard technique for studying the behaviour of brain cells called neurons under different brain states such as […]
