In a First, People Had Their Brain Activity Tracked Remotely During Everyday Life

In a new study out Monday, scientists say they can now record people’s brain activity wirelessly throughout the day—a feat that could allow for better research into the brain’s inner workings. They then used that data to adjust the treatment of people with Parkinson’s disease through deep brain stimulation. It’s an…Read more...

Neuralink: We Got a Monkey to Play Pong Using Only Its Mind

Neuralink, the secretive neuroscience startup co-founded by Elon Musk, has been even more quiet than usual these days. That is, until this week when it released a YouTube video of a monkey appearing to play the classic video game Pong with its mind.Read more...

New brain implant design is meant to restore vision to the blind

Experiments that let a paralyzed person swig coffee using a robotic arm, or that let blind people “see” spots of light, have proven the huge potential of computers that interface with the brain. But the implanted electrodes used in such trials eventually become useless, as scar tissue forms that degrades their electrical connection to brain cells Next month, tests will begin in monkeys of a new implant for piping data into the brain that is designed to avoid that problem. The project is intended...

‘Locked-in’ patient communicates through first at-home brain implant

In a medical first, a 58-year-old ALS patient suffering from locked-in syndrome has regained the ability to communicate through an at-home brain implant that translates her thoughts into text. The post ‘Locked-in’ patient communicates through first at-home brain implant appeared first on Digital Trends.

Brain implants allow paralyzed man to feel his fingertips again

New brain implant technology has given a paralyzed man a whole new lease on life. Since a devastating car accident a decade ago, Nathan Copeland hasn’t been able to feel his hands and fingers. That all changed after scientists implanted chips into his brain to give him sensation through a prosthetic arm. Nathan can not only move and manipulate objects using his mind, but also feel when the robotic fingers are touched. Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center recently publish...
