Latest Brain–computer interface Stories
As is the fate of nearly all scientific and technological advances, military experts are already prowling for ways to convert recent advances in neuroscience into advantages on the battlefield.
In a new study to appear in Neuron, scientists at the RIKEN Brain Science Institute (BSI) have uncovered mechanisms that help our brain to focus by efficiently routing only relevant information to perceptual brain regions.
A team of researchers co-led by the University of Pennsylvania has developed and tested a new high-resolution, ultra-thin device capable of recording brain activity from the cortical surface without having to use penetrating electrodes.
Scientists have designed a novel, noninvasive system that allows users to control a virtual helicopter using only their minds, as reported in the online journal PLoS ONE on Oct. 26.
Two monkeys trained in a Duke University laboratory were able to control a monkey on a computer screen and distinguish between different textures of virtual objects using only their brains.
In a first ever demonstration of a two-way interaction between a primate brain and a virtual body, two monkeys trained at the Duke University Center for Neuroengineering learned to employ brain activity alone to move an avatar hand and identify the texture of virtual objects.
Scientists at the University of California, Berkeley, have created a groundbreaking brain-imaging process that allows them to 'see' moving images inside people's minds.
Imagine tapping into the mind of a coma patient, or watching one's own dream on YouTube.
