The team from Imperial College London in the UK and Peking University in China used data from the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing (ELSA) for their analysis.Jan 29, 2018, 18:14 PM IST
These sensors would send neurological signals like the electroencephalogram (EEG) readings, which the device can decode to launch and operate compatible apps.
This abnormal hyper-sensitivity of brain networks, called Explosive Synchronization (ES), can be observed in other network phenomena as well across nature.Jan 13, 2018, 16:00 PM IST
The researchers show in the paper that when the highest-risk parts of a patient`s daily and long-term cycles of brain irritability overlap, seizures are nearly seven times more likely to occur than when the two cycles are mismatched.Jan 09, 2018, 14:33 PM IST
The level of exertion should be enough to work up a bit of a sweat but doesn't need to be so rigorous that you can't hold a conversation.Dec 28, 2017, 14:38 PM IST
