How do brains tune in to one neural signal out of billions?

By Peter Julian

Human brains manage massive amounts of information, maintain their neural circuitry and accuracy, and carry and send neural messages and signals in the hundreds of billions, each second. Through selective hearing, the brain tunes out unnecessary information and stimuli in order to hone in on and interpret the target information. When nerve cells employ synchronization via signal multiplication and by sending information through precise rhythms known as brainwaves. These biological processes may be able to solve other problems in the world by bettering certain electrical and electronic systems (e.g., telecommunications).

Key Takeaways:

  • The human brain is able to distinguish and make sense of millions of neuron signals every second.
  • Research has been done to translate the sounds of the brain into the range of the human ear.
  • The blueprint and process of the brain can be used to design large-scale systems.

“The challenge for your brain is similar to what you’re faced with when trying to engage in conversation at a noisy cocktail party.”
