UC San Diego Creates Center for Brain Activity Mapping

May 16, 2013

…Creates Center for Brain Activity Mapping Responding to President Barack Obama’s “grand challenge” to chart the function of the human brain in unprecedented detail, the University of California, San Diego has established the Center for Brain Activity Mapping (CBAM). The new center, under the aegis of the interdisciplinary Kavli Institute…

Transparent Brain Implant Can Read Deep Neural Activity From the Surface

January 11, 2024

A multidisciplinary team of researchers at UC San Diego developed a thin, transparent, flexible neural implant that can capture high-resolution information about activity deep inside the brain without damaging its delicate tissue.

How Your Brain Remembers What You Had for Dinner Last Night

January 17, 2018

Confirming earlier computational models, researchers at University of California San Diego and UC San Diego School of Medicine, with colleagues in Arizona and Louisiana, report that episodic memories are encoded in the hippocampus of the human brain by distinct, sparse sets of neurons.

Human Brain Organoids Implanted into Mouse Cortex Respond to Visual Stimuli for First Time

December 28, 2022

A team of engineers and neuroscientists has demonstrated for the first time that human brain organoids implanted in mice have established functional connectivity to the animals’ cortex and responded to external sensory stimuli.

Supercomputers Aid Our Understanding of Complex Brain Waves

April 1, 2019

Using the Comet supercomputer at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at UC San Diego, campus researchers have demonstrated they can efficiently analyze more than 1,000 EEG 128-channel high-density data sets via the new Open EEGLAB Portal running on SDSC’s Neuroscience Gateway.

Decoding Birds’ Brain Signals Into Syllables of Song

September 23, 2021

Researchers can predict what syllables a bird will sing—and when it will sing them—by reading electrical signals in its brain, reports a new study from the University of California San Diego. The work is an early step toward building vocal prostheses for humans who have lost the ability to speak.

UC San Diego in International Collaboration to Develop Wireless Implantable ‘Neurograins’

July 13, 2017

Five UC San Diego professors will receive $4MN as part of an international collaboration led by Brown University to develop grain-sized sensors, actuators and networking to be inserted into the cerebral cortex for brain research or repair. DARPA is funding the overall $19MN project announced this week.

Neural Implant Monitors Multiple Brain Areas at Once, Provides New Neuroscience Insights

April 27, 2021

How do different parts of the brain communicate with each other during learning and memory formation? A study by researchers at UC San Diego takes a first step at answering this fundamental neuroscience question, thanks to a neural implant that monitors multiple brain regions at the same time.

In Some Children with Autism, “Social” and “Visual” Neural Circuits Don’t Quite Connect

December 17, 2019

Researchers combined eye gaze data with brain scans to discover that in a common subtype of autism, brain areas responsible for vision and attention are not controlled by social brain networks, and so social stimuli are ignored.

When Mom Talks, Are Infants with ASD Listening?

January 3, 2022

Researchers at UC San Diego School of Medicine pinpoint the regions of the brain and neural mechanisms responsible for normal or impaired development of a child’s response to baby talk and why infants with autism do not typically respond well.
