Brain-Computer Interface Allows Patients To Control Robotic Limbs
2013-06-12 09:56:08

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Electrodes placed on or inside the brain allow patients to interact with computers or control robotic limbs by merely thinking about how to execute those actions, University of Washington researchers reported on Tuesday. The technology could improve the quality of life for people who are paralyzed or lack the ability to speak due to stroke or neurodegenerative disease by allowing them to control a robotic arm or a prosthetic limb...

2013-03-01 09:47:03

Alan McStravick for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online In an article written earlier this month for redOrbit, this writer highlighted work being done in the Nicolelis laboratory headed by professor of neurobiology Miguel Nicolelis at Duke University School of Medicine. His previous research reported on the ability to enable a rat to “touch” infrared light through the use of a cortical stimulation technique. For the second time this month, the Nicolelis team has released an...

Novel Wireless Brain Sensor Unveiled
2013-02-28 11:18:44

Brown University A team of neuroengineers based at Brown University has developed a fully implantable and rechargeable wireless brain sensor capable of relaying real-time broadband signals from up to 100 neurons in freely moving subjects. Several copies of the novel low-power device, described in the Journal of Neural Engineering, have been performing well in animal models for more than year, a first in the brain-computer interface field. Brain-computer interfaces could help people with...
