Interactive VR Assists in Treatment Planning
Interactive virtual reality (VR) shows a patient's unique internal anatomy to interventional radiologists in order to help physicians effectively prepare and tailor their approach to complex treatments, such as splenic artery aneurysm repair. In a new study, researchers compared the VR technology to the use of images from a commonly used visualization software system that displays images on a standard two-dimensional platform and found the accuracy to be similar with both methods, though confidence improved substantially with VR.

Dissecting AI to Better Understand the Human Brain
At the 25th annual meeting of the Cognitive Neuroscience Society (CNS), researchers presented their work in which cognitive neuroscientists are increasingly using emerging artificial networks to enhance their understanding of one of the most elusive intelligence systems, the human brain. Among the work presented at the symposium at the CNS annual meeting held in Boston from March 24-27, 2018, was “Human and machine cognition: The deep learning challenge” by Aude Oliva of MIT. In Oliva’s work, neuroscientists are learning much about the role of contextual clues in human image recognition. By using “artificial neurons” – essentially lines of code, software – with neural network models, they can parse out the various elements that go into recognizing a specific place or object.
