Quotes

..."Understanding how sound representation is organized in the brain is ultimately very important for better treating hearing deficits," Yue says. "We hope that mouse experiments like this can provide a basis for figuring out how our own brains process language and, eventually, how to help people with cochlear implants and similar interventions hear better."
...Gallivan. "Surprisingly, however, we found that this non-visual information was also stored in ventral visual cortex. Presumably this allows for the weight of an object to become easily associated with its visual properties." In ongoing re, Drs...
"Our clinical optometrists will also review your scans with you on the same day. In the event we spot something serious, we’ll advise you on if we simply need to continue monitoring this ourselves, or we need to refer you to your Doctor or directly to Hospital. In these cases we will also discuss with you the most likely and best and treatment options too and also arrange an appropriate referral letter including options for private consultation if that is what you require. We will also keep all your scans as digital records so that we can review and compare them in the future to ensure the best your best on going care, added Mohammed"
"Grab the brain early enough, and the doors to learning and the universe remain open" says Sharma
