The Nicolelis laboratory at Duke University has some fascinating news this week of how rhesus monkeys can use their minds to move the arms of a virtual monkey on a screen.
A device that could predict when a person with epilepsy might next have a seizure is one step closer to reality thanks to the development of software by researchers in the USA.
Researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have identified a chain reaction that triggers the regrowth of some damaged nerve cell branches, a discovery that one day may help improve treatments for nerve injuries that can cause loss of sensation or paralysis.
MyErgoHealth, a leader in Custom Ergonomic solutions, has released the results of a 30-day case study focusing on the pain relieving benefits of their myErgoBed Customized Sleep Solution and 30
The Comprehensive Epilepsy Care Center at North Shore-LIJ’s Cushing Neuroscience Institute is one of the first in the United States and the first in the New York metro area to use a new combination
It doesn't take a Watson to realize that even the world's best supercomputers are staggeringly inefficient and energy-intensive machines.
New cutting-edge research report “Electrophysiology Devices Market (ECG, EEG, Holter Monitoring Systems, Diagnostic Electrophysiology Catheters, Pacemaker, Imaging and 3D Mapping Systems) -
A patient with a traumatic brain injury will sometimes be placed into a medically-induced coma, which allows the brain time to heal and dangerous swelling to subside. Brought about through the use of anesthesia drugs, medically-induced comas can last for days.
Dendrites, the branch-like projections of neurons, were once thought to be passive wiring in the brain. But now researchers at UNC have shown that dendrites actively process information, multiplying the brain’s computing power. The finding could help researchers better understand neurological disorders.
Electrooculography, sometimes shortened to EOG, is the tracing of electricity used for operation of the retina in different phases, specifically the resting potential. The results are recorded on an electrooculogram. These are interpreted for opthalmological diagnosis and in recording eye movements. Eye movement measurements: Usually, pairs of electrodes are placed either above and below the eye or to the left and right of the eye. If the eye is moved from the center position towards one...
