Observing opposing neuronal states in a global scan

News that one of the world’s most advanced brain research centres will serve all nations is spreading like wildfire across the internet in the past 24 hours.

Harvard brain scientists are launching a global probe in search of the ins-and-outs of each different method of categorizing images inside our brains and whether they correspond to any of the seven basic personality traits (fun-sensitive, openness-dependent, conscientious-focused, extroverted and conscientious-focused).

Each method will be carried out by the I. R. A. Brain Research Unit, the Scripps Research Institute’s computing centre for visual analytics and cognitive neuroscience research (this acronym is short for Intelligence Research & Advanced Mechanisms, Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA).

After several years of research the global team of scientists is launching a much-anticipated study, testing the full range of methods for the 3, 800 participants.

Their study will enable the team to explore the work by more than 64 scientists, 30 in the US, writing a paper for Thomson Reuters. Their paper is a kind of ‘Global Brain Study’ for which representatives will travel all over the world including the UK and the USA to provide relevant brain data and gives insights about how culture, psychology and intelligence is related when faced with big data and artificial intelligence.

Senior author of the paper Terrance Holey, group leader at I. R. A. Brain Research Unit, co-supervised the study in the Organisation for the Development of Neuro-Educational Computing (ODC) team and a brainswearer at the University of Oxford.

The study will be carried out worldwide in 10 academic institutions and 10 universities in the United States, Australia, Germany, Israel, Canada, Denmark, Lebanon, Netherlands, Norway and South Africa, it said.

The authors will evaluate 19 different types of mental traits by each country, followed by the popular knowledge test, the five-item Raven’s Chi, which allows users to identify various personality traits in the following so-called ordered sets.

A significant amount of research is conducted globally by brain scientists in this area. This includes data on personality RBCs (referred to as executive functions), and whether there are genetic and environmental factors that based on personality can predict an individual’s personality, the I. R. A. Brain Research Unit paper said.

As far as big data and artificial intelligence methods are concerned, their global study means that the success of one, nation, country and country can be expected to match that of the next. Mattis just said the United States is boosting its intelligence ability and is jeopardizing human lives, ” Holey said.
