Music in premature infants enhances high-level cognitive brain networks | PNAS
Certain structured music for premature babies can help recover neural development lags from full third term delivered babies it seems. Wonder if running the same sounds through a speaker attached to the woman's belly might improve things for normal babies? MP3's included

Evolving Images for Visual Neurons Using a Deep Generative Network Reveals Coding Principles and Neuronal Preferences: Cell
Using some specific monkey neurons that are in a cluster near the ears as a replacement for the discriminator in a GAN deep learning setup, these biology/neurology researchers effectively were able to ask the cells directly what visually interested them.

All languages speak syllables at about the same rate. Neuroscientists now know why | Big Think
So there's a reason the motor cortex is involved in language processing, and why most human languages use a 4-5Hz syllable rate. Entrained auditory signals are chunked at about 4.5Hz., motor cortex internally oscillates at 4-5Hz

Halo Neuroscience announces public availability of Halo Sport
Uses neuropriming, where they stimulate the motor cortex to make it easier for the brain to reconfigure (neuroplasticity) and learn motor control patterns. So they shock your head lightly for 20 minutes before the actual training regime. Enhanced human athletics is here.

Smartphone attached patch thingy you stick on your head, which can stimulate alertfulness without outright shocking you or drugging you up. Might be decent, but uses disposable contact strips you need to replace.

neurocam / neurowear
So, a head mounted camera that triggers on the users emotions, and can tag photos with the user's feelings (roughly). Not for excitable people, and definitely not for exciting situations (extreme sports, other...), but a good way for cutting down on the number of photos taken, in comparison to a continuous lifestream lifelogger device, assuming your interest is in things you found interesting at the time the photo was taken, rather than trawling through recorded memories for other things. May have military applications as the brain can pick up on things in the visual field that the brain finds interesting, even if the conscious mind is unaware of it (there's a DARPA project like that that essentially uses a human's unconscious interest as a form of video preprocessor system for intel/surveillance purposes).

Focus / Start Your Head with transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS)
Shocking your brain to work better, apparently. Which sorta works (applies to focus, learning, and working memory and possibly raising pain thresholds and non-dominant hand usability), but long term usage effects are still unknown. Also, it uses saline soaked sponges for the contacts to keep your skin from burning!

Makes of the Muse, a brainwave sensor bluetooth headband that works with a smartphone. Currently, it is just sending the brainwave sensor data to the phone, which processes it to detect certain states. Eventually, they want to move into brainwave analysis sufficient to allow "mind controlled" smartphones via the headband. Not a licensee of NueroSky...
