Study shows sensory feedback gives monkeys better control of computer cursors Monkeys moved thought-controlled computer cursors more quickly and accurately when provided with additional sensory feedback, according to a new study in the Dec. 15 issue of The Journal of Neuroscience. While most brain-machine technologies rely only on visual feedback, this study demonstrated that these systems can be improved when users have additional input, such as a sense of the arm's position and motion, a...

UCLA-Caltech collaboration demonstrates how we focus our thoughts Every day our brains are flooded by stimulation "” sounds, sights and smells. At the same time, we are constantly engaged in an inner dialogue, ruminating about the past, musing about the future. Somehow the brain filters all this input instantly, selecting some things for long- or short-term storage, discarding others and focusing in on what's most important at any given instant. How this competition is resolved across...

Move over, touchpad screens: New research funded in part by the National Institutes of Health shows that it is possible to manipulate complex visual images on a computer screen using only the mind. The study, published in Nature, found that when research subjects had their brains connected to a computer displaying two merged images, they could force the computer to display one of the images and discard the other. The signals transmitted from each subject's brain to the computer were derived...

Doctors in Israel have developed a unique "sniffing" controller that allows people with severe disabilities to use their noses to write, surf the Web, and even navigate their wheelchairs. The new technology might even be used in the future to create a sort of 'third hand' to assist healthy surgeons or pilots. The device uses a "sniffing technology" that measures pressure changes in the nose from breathing in and out, and then translates these changes to electrical signals. When tested on...

The world's largest high-tech fair is the place to go to find out how you can play games or do daily chores all by just using the power of your mind. At the annual CeBIT fair, crowds gathered around a man sitting at a pinball table, wearing a cap full of electrodes attached to his head. The man controlled flippers with ease without the use of his hands. Michael Tangermann, of Berlin Brain Computer Interface, told spectators "He thinks: left-hand or right-hand and the electrodes monitor the...
