Robotic instruments have been assisting clinical staff and engineers alike for many years, with prosthetic robotic arms, which allow people who have lost a limb to regain freedom of movement, … Continue Reading First successful non-invasive mind-controlled robotic arm.
Stroke, traumatic brain injury, and neurodegenerative diseases can all cause the loss of the ability to speak. Some people with severe speech disabilities learn to spell out their thoughts letter-by-letter … Continue Reading Synthetic speech generated from brain signals.
A Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) marries the brain to Artificial Intelligence (AI), using signals recorded from the brain to enable communication or to control a neuroprosthesis. This technology is now being … Continue Reading Researchers translate brain signals directly into speech.
Various neuronal activity recording and stimulating devices enable cellular exploration to further understand AI, brain diseases, and work towards developing the ‘immortal download’. Brain functions are controlled by millions of … Continue Reading A small step towards the immortal download, new neurochip records long-term brain cell activity.
Touch is essential for hand use, however, brain-controlled prosthetic limbs have not been endowed with this critical sense. Now, a study from researchers at the University of Pittsburgh develops a … Continue Reading New brain-computer interface restores the sense of touch in the hand of a paralyzed man.
It is known that brain–computer interfaces record brain activity and translate the information into useful control signals. They can be used to restore function to people with paralysis by controlling … Continue Reading New technology for reading signals directly from the brain allows typing at 12 words per minute.
Mobility after paraplegia due to spinal cord injury (SCI) is primarily achieved by substituting the lost function with a wheelchair. However, the sedentary lifestyle associated with excessive wheelchair reliance can … Continue Reading Brain-computer interface enables paralyzed man to walk in world’s first.
For designers of brain-computer interfaces, whose goal is to translate neural patterns into commands for a prosthetic device, it may be important to know that the emerging plan to execute … Continue Reading Researchers begin to hone cybernetics by mapping grip pressure variance in the brain.
