redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Scientists are developing an implant that can allow them to manipulate the neural activity of rhesus monkeys, allowing them to help regain lost decision-making processes in the primates and providing a technological device which could someday help those suffering from dementia, stroke, cerebral injury or various brain diseases. A team of researchers hailing from the University of Southern California (USC), the University of...

Emotiv - Hacking The Human Brain
2012-08-27 09:45:58

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Our minds are often the most secure place we can go to think thoughts otherwise unspeakable to human ears. We may not agree with every thought we have and might even be ashamed by many of them, yet there they are, striking the core of our minds like lightning; quick and unpredictable. As such, it could be quite embarrassing and frightening to know someone not only has access to our brains, but knows what we´re thinking....

[ Watch the Video ] Connie K. Ho for RedOrbit.com For one lucky woman, 15 years of paralysis was broken on Saturday, April 12 when the 58-year-old woman, who is unable to speak, controlled a robotic arm by thinking about a particular action. This resulted in the robotic arm picking up a bottle of coffee, lifting it her to mouth, allowing her to take a sip. This feat is part of the progress made in a project regarding brain-computer interfaces restorative neurotechnology and assistive...

Swiss Robot Gives Paraplegic Man Mobility Via Mind-Control
2012-04-25 07:25:57

Mobility is something most of us take for granted, and when we lose that ability through paralysis we lose a huge part of our independence. Now, a team of Swiss scientists are making strides in giving paraplegics back at least some of their mobility through the use of a new mind-controlled robot. The robot is controlled by the brainwaves of a paraplegic wearing an electrode-fitted cap. The person wearing the cap, Mark-Andre Duc, demonstrated the device from a hospital in the Swiss town of...

Finnish researchers break ground in neonatal brain research In the past few years, researchers at the University of Helsinki have made several breakthroughs in discovering how the brain of preterm babies work, in developing treatments to protect the brain, and in developing research methods suitable for hospital use. Each year, the brains of hundreds of Finnish children, and therefore their future lives, are at risk due to premature birth or intrapartum asphyxia. The brain is a...
