BRAIN. Broad Research in Artificial Intelligence and Neuroscience

BRAIN. BROAD RESEARCH IN ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE AND NEUROSCIENCE wishes to create links between researchers from apparently different scientific fields, such as Computer Science and Neurology, Artificial Intelligence, Cognitive Sciences, and Neurosciences, that can intersect in the study of the brain and its intelligent functions.

We are planning to put out a new issue of Volume 9, issue 4, in December 2018. You are invited to write on any topic of our journal. 

You may submit your work to The deadline for sending articles for the 4th issue is the 1st of November, 2018.

Starting with the 1st volume (the year 2010), our journal has been included in the new Master Journal List of Thomson Reuters. You can find us in the new Emerging Sources Citation Index (part of Web of Science) at this link:


Below you can see a screen capture with some indexed papers (from the december 2017 issue). You can check the Web of Science to see all the indexed papers.

The Prediction of the Rate of the Dropout of the Primary Schools Students by Using the Genetic Algorithm

In this research, the ARIMA model of the time series has been applied for the prediction of the rate of the dropout of the primary schools for the male and female students during the period (2007-2015) by estimating the auto-correlation and partial coefficients. It shows that the time series is unstable. After estimating correlation and

Are We Safe Enough in the Future of Artificial Intelligence? A Discussion on Machine Ethics and Artificial Intelligence Safety

Nowadays, there is a serious anxiety on the existence of dangerous intelligent systems and it is not just a science-fiction idea of evil machines like the ones in well-known Terminator movie or any other movies including intelligent robots – machines threatening the existence of humankind. So, there is a great interest in some alternative research

Approximation Solutions of Boundary-contact Problems of Non-classical Diffusion Models Coupled-elasticity

In this article we formulate and analyze a class of diffusion PDE models for oscillation systems of coupled–elasticity in 2-D bounded domains. Approximate method in Green-Lindsay formulation with thermal and diffusion relaxation times has been developed. Basic Boundary contact problems for isotropic in homogeneous finite and infinite media with the inclusion of piece wise elastic

A Corpus-driven Study of Contrastive Markers in Cantonese‒English Political Interpreting

Political interpreting, as a significant means for foreign language speakers to access a government’s official policies, has been regarded as an intensive and stressful task. Any single misinterpretation or misuse of strategy can lead to regional and even international disputes. It will therefore be interesting to study the pragmatic strategies applied by interpreters working in

New Ideas for Brain Modelling 4

This paper continues the research that considers a new cognitive model based strongly on the human brain. In particular, it considers the neural binding structure of an earlier paper. It also describes some new methods in the areas of image processing and behaviour simulation. The work is all based on earlier research by the author

A Facial Motion Capture System Based on Neural Network Classifier Using RGB-D Data

Analysis of live and dynamic movements by computer is one of the areas that draws a great deal of interest to itself. One of the important parts of this area is the motion capture process that can be based on the appearance and facial mode estimation. The aim of this study is to represent 3D

Comparing the Effect of Neurofeedback and Verbal Self-Instruction on Children Afflicted with Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder: A Cognitive- Behavioral Approach

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is one of the developmental-behavioral disorders whose prevalence is between three to five years of age. There are several ways to cope with this problem. Two common methods for treating this disorder are verbal self-instruction and neurofeedback. This study intended to compare the effect of neurofeedback and verbal selfinstruction on children

Artificial Intelligence and the Future of Smart Cities

Smart cities integrate a wide variety of technologies and support those innovations capable of delivering sustainable socio-economic development of cities. They are complex environments that are shaped by their innovation capacity, information and communication technologies (ICTs) development and adoption, living standards, residents’ readiness, and, last but not least, the willingness to invest. Higher urbanization rates

To What Extent Is Free Will Actually Free? The Answer of Neurosciences

Even though at the beginning of the 1980s the results of the first neuroscience experiments made some researchers label free will as an “illusion”, researches of recent years have unexpectedly changed this perspective. It is raised the issue of post-classical, post-dualistic views in which free will can no longer be regarded as an “all-or-nothing” phenomenon,
