In the not so distant past being able to control one’s environment through thoughts alone was once imprisoned within the realm of science fiction. However, the advancement of technology has … Continue Reading Brain-computer-interface can read people’s opinions from brainwaves.
In the renowned Avatar film, we saw humans ‘living-in’ their synthetic alien counterparts through wireless brain signals sent from remote locations via brain-to-brain interfaces (BBIs). Whilst non-invasive wireless BBIs capable … Continue Reading Novel brain-to-brain interface has the ability to control locomotion.
A lack of understanding currently veils the field of brain injury, with sufferers undergoing cataclysmic personality changes as well as other chronic health problems affecting the whole body. Electronics are … Continue Reading Artificial and biological neurons communicate over the internet.
Neurologically capable neurobot a step closer to integrating nanobots into biological nerval systems.
The human brain presents a powerful, low-energy computing model, made up billions of networked neurons connected by synapses which provide the memory elements. Synaptic connections can become stronger or weaker, … Continue Reading Neurologically capable neurobot a step closer to integrating nanobots into biological nerval systems.
Speech is a complex process involving both motions of the mouth and vibrations of folded tissues, called vocal cords, within the throat. However, if the vocal cords sustain injuries or … Continue Reading ‘Stick-on’ artificial throat converts motion into speech.
Knee replacement surgery, where a damaged, worn or diseased knee is replaced with an artificial joint, is the most common joint replacement procedure, with the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons … Continue Reading Prototype smart, bionic knee implant can power itself.
Researchers use AI to rescue embryos from brain defects by re-engineering cellular voltage patterns.
Improper neural patterning during brain development leads to serious disorders such as open neural tube defects, brain malformations, and susceptibility to autism or degenerative disorders. There are currently no clinically … Continue Reading Researchers use AI to rescue embryos from brain defects by re-engineering cellular voltage patterns.
Uncovering the dynamics of facial identity processing in the brain along with its representational basis and interpretation outlines an obvious application for those unable to communicate without the use of … Continue Reading Artificial intelligence uses EEG data to reconstruct images based on what participants perceive.
Robotics has attracted great interest among teachers and researchers as a valuable tool for developing cognitive and social skills of students, from kindergarten to middle-level education, supporting science, mathematics, technology, … Continue Reading New emotional-based AI is a step forward in using robotic tutors in primary school classrooms.
The skin is the largest organ in the human body and is made up of three layers, the epidermis, dermis and the fat layer. The epidermis is the outer layer … Continue Reading Artificially intelligent synthetic skin interacts with brain cells.
When a person’s brain receives sensory input, the electrical signals are decoded in various sensory areas of the cortex, and then combined in the brain’s hippocampus, the brain’s memory centre, … Continue Reading Human trials begin on ‘brain-chip’ to bypass brain damage and form memories.
