Researchers Create Mind-Controlled Flying Robot
2013-06-06 07:35:00

April Flowers for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online A new, non-invasive system that allows people to control a flying robot using only their mind has been developed by researchers at the University of Minnesota, according to a study published in the Journal of Neural Engineering. Although it sounds like fun and games, the study´s findings have implications for helping people who are paralyzed or have neurodegenerative diseases. [ Watch the Video: Science Nation – Mind-Controlled...

Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis A cross-disciplinary collaboration of researchers in the School of Science at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) explores the neural synchrony between circuits in the brain and their behavior under simulated drug addiction. The two-year study could have broad implications for treating addiction and understanding brain function in conditions such as Parkinson´s disease. Advanced mathematical models coupled with...

Breakthrough Could Lead to Better Understanding of Learning and Memory Students preparing for final exams might want to wait before pulling an all-night cram session – at least as far as their neurons are concerned. Carnegie Mellon University neuroscientists have discovered a new intermediate phase in neuronal development during which repeated exposure to a stimulus shrinks synapses. The findings are published in the May 8 issue of the Journal of Neuroscience. It's well known that...

“The Sodium Theory Revisited” reveals newest developments in nerve function research. UNITED KINGDOM (PRWEB) May 24, 2013 The sodium theory has been elegantly proposed by A.L. Hodkin, A.F. Huxley and B. Katz in the early 1950s, after their experiments on Plymouth squids, to account for the role of sodium and potassium ions in nerve functions. Since then, the electrophysiological techniques and the data acquisition techniques have known amazing developments. In The Sodium Theory...

Worm EEG Developed To Test The Effects Of Drugs
2013-05-23 12:26:15

[ Watch The Video Worm Brain Reader ] University of Southampton Scientists from the University of Southampton have developed a device which records the brain activity of worms to help test the effects of drugs. NeuroChip is a microfluidic electrophysiological device, which can trap the microscopic worm Caenorhadbitis elegans and record the activity of discrete neural circuits in its 'brain' - a worm equivalent of the EEG. C. elegans have been enormously important in...

Largest clinical study evaluating durability of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation shows depression patients maintained remission through 52 weeks with the NeuroStar New data released today at the annual meeting of the American Psychiatric Association show that the NeuroStar TMS Therapy System® induced statistically and clinically meaningful response and remission in patients with Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) during the acute phase of therapy, which were maintained through one year...

Electrical Brain Stimulation May Help Boost Math Skills
2013-05-17 11:38:35

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Oxford University researchers in a new study found that a weak electrical signal can help boost a person's mathematic skills over a period few months. The team wrote in the journal Cell Biology that their technique involves placing electrodes on the scalp of the head and applying random electrical noise to stimulate the part of the brain known to be involved in doing math. The technique, known as transcranial random noise...

Electrooculography
2012-12-31 11:47:45

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...
