The world´s first Brain Training Device has given a ray of new hope to the recovery of survivors after stroke. Developed by researchers of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University´s Interdisciplinary Division of Biomedical Engineering, this novel device which can detect brainwave, and thereby control the movement of paralyzed limbs, or go even further to control a robotic hand based on its sophisticated algorithm. (PRWEB) May 15, 2013 The world´s first Brain Training Device has...

Grammatical Errors Detected When They Brain Is On Autopilot
2013-05-14 06:33:19

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Neuroscientists at the University of Oregon have captured conclusive evidence that people detect and process grammatical errors with no awareness of doing so. While the theory that the brain works on autopilot when it comes to grammar has been around for some time, hard evidence has been elusive. In the current study, native-English speaking participants ages 18-30 had their brain activity recorded using electroencephalography,...

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Samsung is joining forces with an engineering professor at the University of Texas at Dallas to work on a device which could allow you to control your smartphone or tablet computer with your brain. According to Susan Young of the MIT Technology Review, the device in question is an electroencephalography (EEG) cap which could be used to launch an application, select a specific person out of a list of contacts or a song from a...

Science Of Neuromarketing Helping Advertisers Get In Consumers’ Heads
2013-04-14 08:10:31

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports — Your Universe Online In the highly-competitive, multi-million dollar advertising industry, science is increasingly becoming an important tool in determining exactly what kinds of marketing campaigns and products appeal to a potential consumer — so much so that there is an emerging field dedicated solely to getting inside our brains to figure out what we really want. This hybrid of science and advertising is known as neuromarketing, and...

Sleep Better And Improve Your Memory With Sound Stimulation
2013-04-12 08:10:02

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A new study reveals that the slow oscillations in brain activity that occur during slow-wave sleep are critical for retaining memories. Playing sounds synchronized to the rhythm of the slow brain oscillations of sleeping people enhances the oscillations, the researchers found, and boosts memory retention. The study, published in Neuron, demonstrates an easy and noninvasive method of influencing human brain activity to improve sleep...

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...
