In an effort to understand what happens in the brain when a person reads or considers such abstract ideas as love or justice, Princeton researchers have for the first time matched images of brain activity with categories of words related to the concepts a person is thinking about. The results could lead to a better understanding of how people consider meaning and context when reading or thinking. The researchers report in the journal Frontiers in Human Neuroscience that they used...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) -- A new brain implant may one day be used to reactivate paralyzed limbs. Researchers at the University of Michigan developed the brain implant, which is called the BioBolt. It uses the body's skin like a conductor to wirelessly transmit the brain's neural signals to control a computer. According to the researchers, this brain implant is minimally invasive and low power, unlike other neural interface technologies that establish a connection from the brain to an external...
