As we have previously discussed this month, Traumatic Brain Injuries are complex injuries, driven by interacting mechanisms (Corps, Roth, & McGavern, 2015). Due to the rising rate of TBI diagnosis, it is increasingly important to understand its components and potential methods of treatment (Simon, McGeachy, Bayır, Clark, Loane, & Kochanek, 2017; James,Theadom, [...]

The Basics of TBI

This month the HBSF Brain Blog will be devoted to posts about Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and related disorders such as Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE). Silver, McAllister, Arcinegas and the American Psychiatric Association (2019), define TBI as, “a disruptions of brain function and/or structure due to the application of external physical force [...]

Deep Learning and Neural Emotion Recognition

Brain Machine Interfaces (BMI), also known as Brain Computer Interfaces (BCI), are an emerging technology designed to communicate with the human brain. Though there are many potential uses, these devices can be used as a type of neural prosthesis or as a way to measure electrical activity through electroencephalography (EEG).  In our [...]

Deep Learning and Neurohealth

Howard Brain Sciences Foundation (HBSF) is interested in both the research and utilization of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to spur new advances in detection, treatment, and patient care. AI has countless potential uses as modern Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) have become increasingly complex, and thus capable of observing and processing data regarding the [...]
