Easy tasks don't test brain's true complexity

Rice Jun 12, 2017

The human brain naturally makes its best guess when making a decision, and studying those guesses can be very revealing about the brain's inner workings. But neuroscientists at Rice and Baylor College of Medicine say a full understanding of the complexity of the human brain will require better real-world simulations.

Rice May 31, 2017

Rice University engineers working to add “muscle sense” to prosthetic limbs found that tactile feedback on the skin allowed blindfolded test subjects to more than double their ability to discern the size of objects grasped with a prosthetic hand.
