Boosted by celebrity endorsements and a controversial research program, clinics are peddling stem cell autism treatments questioned by experts

A researcher holds a box containing vials of human embryonic Stem Cell cultures from the freezer at the Burnham Institute on November 3, 2004 in La Jolla, California. Sandy Huffaker/Getty Images From Central America to Ukraine, unlicensed clinics are offering stem cell therapies as a treatment for autism.  Stem cells used mainly to treat blood disease. Their effectiveness on autism is unproven and the FDA has not licensed their use for the condition. One prominent clinic providing such tre...

Skoltech research makes it easier to pinpoint brain activity in EEG studies

Skoltech researchers have proposed a fast and accurate numerical method of addressing the problem plaguing electroencephalography (EEG) studies that monitor the brain's electrical activity -- having to laboriously locate the source of EEG signal in the brain due to the low spatial resolution of this method.

Studies suggest dyslexia could be caused by having less brain plasticity

Two studies point to diminished brain plasticity — the ability to adapt thinking and memory to new information — as the cause behind dyslexia. People with dyslexia appear to have less brain plasticity than average, according to the studies, which were conducted at Hebrew University of Israel and MIT. People with dyslexia are more likely to forget recent events than non-dyslexics, and their brains do not adapt as well to "repeated stimuli, including spoken words, musical notes, and faces," accord...

'See through,' high-resolution EEG recording array gives a better glimpse of the brain

Electroencephalograms (EEGs) are commonly used to measure brain activity, but they cannot differentiate the activity of different types of brain cells. Nor is it possible to easily combine EEG data with brain imaging data. A collaboration between Boston Children's Hospital and Northeastern University has led to a highly miniaturized, see-through EEG device. Using it in live, awake mice, researchers were able to capture the electrical outputs of individual neurons while simultaneously performing ...

Can you flip a switch and shut down seizures?

Its function depends on finely calibrated electrical activity triggering the release of chemical messages between neurons. Electroencephalography, or EEG, visualizes a brain’s electrical activity and can reveal how an epileptic seizure diverges from the predictable wave pattern of typical brain activity.

Nissan Researches Mind-Over-Motor Technology – Technologue

Nissan made big, brainy waves at CES by unveiling its brain-to-vehicle research project. If you’ve read recent headlines about people controlling robotic arms or quadcopters simply by thinking about doing so while wearing funny electroencephalography (EEG) caps bristling with sensors and wires, you might wonder whether the era of drive-by-wireless imagination is upon us. It is not. Nor is direct brain control of your commute what Nissan is after. This sandbox research project simply aims to use ...

Researchers recorded a thought making its way through the brain in real time — see what it looks like

Brain scientists at the University of California Berkeley placed electrodes on the outer layer of the brains of 16 patients and watched how a thought developed in their heads. The insights shed new light on how the prefrontal cortex coordinates activity in the brain, like a conductor. The researchers also saw that when the brain engages in simple tasks, our motor cortex begins to work very early, suggesting we're sometimes preparing to respond before we've completely heard what's being said. ...

As Our Machines Get Smarter, Do Humans Need An Upgrade?

Brain augmentation might sound like science fiction, but the technology is already a well-established field of neuroscience. There are noninvasive forms of tech like EEG, in which sensors use electrical signals to communicate with our brains, and cochlear implants that interface with auditory neurons to restore hearing. Brain-computer interfaces already play a crucial role in […]

Researchers combine EEG and MRI to find improved ways of understanding ALS

Researchers in the Academic Unit of Neurology at Trinity College Dublin in Ireland have been studying brain wave patterns in the neurodegenerative condition amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). They have made the surprising discovery that some specific parts of the brain are 'over-connected' in ALS, while other parts show reduced activity as the brain networks disintegrate.

Have Trouble Sleeping After A Bad Day? Your Dog Does Too!

Ever feel like your dog is just a human with paws? Now, a Hungarian study discovered that dogs suffer with sleep issues after enduring a stressful experience, just like we do. The study found that, like humans, dogs who experienced a negative situation, took longer to fall asleep than the group who had a positive one. The dogs were subjected to negative experiences such as being tied in one place or being ignored by their owner. The positive experiences lasted si...

Lama Nachman Keeps Stephen Hawking Talking with Assistive Tech

Believing anything is possible led Lama Nachman to become a groundbreaking engineer in predictive computing – and yes, she is on physicist Stephen Hawking’s speed dial. World-renowned physicist Stephen Hawking had fans laughing when he auditioned people to find a replacement for his trademark computer-generated voice. The spoof for Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day last March revealed for many just how iconic Hawking’s voice is and how its sound is imbedded in the way we think about the universe. “Ste...

A strange technique that involves observing your own brain activity could be the future of treating depression

A non-invasive technique that stimulates a part of the brain known to be involved in depression could have major benefits for people with the disorder, a recent study has found. The technique involves having a person observe the activity of their own amygdala, and consciously try to increase that activity by recalling positive memories. It's called fMRI neurofeedback. Kymberly Young, the leading author of the new study and an assistant professor of psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh Scho...
