AI plugged into the brain detects delirium, watching Scooby-Doo as a kid makes you fat today, an Xbox controller and a virtual mall found source of theta waves: Digital Pulse


The latest health care technology news

AI plugged into the brain can detect delirium

Researchers found that by combining a neural network and data from medical devices that measure brain waves, they could accurately predict delirium in patients. In fact, the AI-powered test had 97% accuracy, compared to about 40% when done by a human using traditional methods. Voter advocacy groups are already lobbying to make wearing the device mandatory at all times for politicians.

Watching Scooby-Doo as a kid made you fat today

A study published in Pediatrics found a link between television viewing between the ages of 5 and 15 and metabolic syndrome at age 45. The bad news is even changing habits later in life didn’t really result in different outcomes. The good news is that Scooby and the gang vow to get to the bottom of this nefarious plot to limit screen time, most likely by pulling the mask off some old guy looking to cash in on a small town’s woes.

An Xbox controller and a virtual mall used to discover source of theta waves

Researchers looking for the source of theta brainwaves used an Xbox controller and some shopping at a virtual mall to find it. A better understanding of these waves may lead to better treatments for Alzheimer’s disease and other neurological disorders. If that doesn’t pan out, at least the interview subjects will be qualified to get jobs as professional gamers.
