AI can help doctors spot brain hemorrhages faster
AI is already capable of discovering medical conditions with a high degree of accuracy. However, brain hemorrhages are particularly challenging -- false positives slow things down, while missing even a tiny hemorrhage could be deadly. The technology might be ready for it, however. UC Berkeley and UCSF researchers have created an algorithm that detected brain hemorrhages with accuracy better than two out of four radiologists in a test. The key was the algorithm's finely-detailed training data.The process relied on a convolutional neural network that pored over 4,396 CT scans.

In-brain electrodes are the latest weapon against opioid addiction
Researchers at the West Virginia University Rockefeller Neuroscience Institute (RNI) and West Virginia University Medicine are conducting the first clinical trial in the US that uses deep brain stimulation to treat opioid addiction. The procedure is meant for those who have exhausted all other forms of treatment but still suffer from opioid use disorder. The first patient, a 33-year-old man, has a decade-long history of opioid and benzo abuse, overdoses and relapses.Deep brain stimulation, or DBS, is a form of surgery that places electrodes inside the patient's brain -- in this case, in the self-control and pleasure centers.

His wife Stella, whom he married in 2003, is also currently doing a documentary on the actor.
“One of my teachers told her I was a mystery [when I was young],” he says. “I didn’t speak to other kids; I didn’t play sports; I didn’t even go to the school plays. But I was tired of being called stupid, and I thought, ‘One day I’ll show you all.’ And I became this other person. My career took off.”
Despite playing dozens and dozens of roles over a 60-year acting career since the Oscar-winner is still perhaps most famously known for playing Dr. Hannibal Lecter in 1991’s The Silence of the Lambs, and its two follow up films.
Speaking of the role, Hopkins tells the magazine, “I have an instinct for those kinds of people. They’re narcissists. I don’t know if that’s in me — I just understand them. And I’ll never escape from that guy. When I started reading The Silence of the Lambs script, I told my agent, ‘This is the part of a lifetime.’ It changed everything for me.”
Hannibal Lecter: "I prefer my version to that of Anthony Hopkins" says Brian CoxHis coming to Lille to present the pilot of his Series Succession Series opening series was also the opportunity for us to discuss with Brian Cox some of his best roles, both in film and television. It was therefore impossible not to tell him about Hannibal Lecter's performance (the first ever on the screen) in The Sixth Sense of Michael Mann. In this regard, the Scottish comedian has also split a surprising confession. While praising the qualities of actor - and human - his successor in the role Anthony Hopkins (The Silence of the Lambs, Hannibal and Red Dragon ), Brian Cox has indeed told us that he did not like the other versions of the character, blaming them for omnipresence on the screen, an excessive use of violent scenes that remove according to him to Lecter all its worrying aura but also a sometimes caricatured description of the character.The Sixth Sense: when Michael Mann gave life to Hannibal LecterConsidered as one of the greatest villains in the history of cinema, the Lecter Hopkins version allowed him to win the Oscar for Best Actor, but also to obtain an international notoriety that has never been denied.

Screaming in pain, with skin peeling from their faces and limbs scorched by steam and ash, the survivors were transferred from a dinghy bobbing in the water off the small island. There was "lots of screaming. Panicked screaming," he says, recalling the injured shouting: "'Get me out of here. I'm burning. I'm burning.
