Brainwave Passwords Are The Next Futuristic Thing
2013-04-10 19:28:17

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Researchers are working on a new way to provide security where instead of typing a password, you simply think of it. The team presented their findings at the 2013 Workshop on Usable Security at the Seventeenth International Conference on Financial Cryptography and Data Security in Okinawa, Japan. They conducted several experiments to determine whether their ideas were feasible. Researchers used the Neurosky MindSet for their...

EEG could be more widely used to identify treatable causes of common disorders in hospital patients, say researchers in Mayo Clinic Proceedings A retrospective study of patients who had in-hospital electroencephalography (EEG) has established that EEG is a valuable tool that could be deployed more widely to identify treatable causes of impaired consciousness in the hospital setting. The study is published in the April issue of the Mayo Clinic Proceedings. Altered mental status (AMS) and...

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...
