Researchers from the MoCoTi European project have designed the prototype of an android which learns how to actuate its own limbs and can be easily duplicated. The device, formed of an artificial brain which controls a tendon-driven rob...

  • ‘Waves’ of neural activity give new clues about Alzheimer’s
