A new neuroprosthesis has been developed to bypass a damaged section of the hippocampus and provide a neighboring area with correctly translated memory. The device could help people with Alzheimer's disease or those who have problems with memory following brain injury.
Researchers have developed new software that allows powered prosthetics to automatically tune themselves, making the limbs more functionally useful.
Researchers have developed a new soft robotic hand with numerous embedded fiber optic sensors and a new type of stretchable optical sensor. They believe incorporating the stretchable optical material into the hand could help provide more feedback.
Researchers report a person who has been paralyzed for more than a decade has become the first person to be able to 'feel' physical sensations through a prosthetic hand directly connected to his brain.
A new study could pave the way to the creation of a new generation of self learning and easy to use neuroprosthetic devices.
According to a new study, researchers have successfully used polymer nanotubes to create a neuron-like network.
New discoveries about neuroplasticity following vision loss could improve patient susceptibility to sensory prosthetics.
Researchers have developed a brain friendly extracellular matrix environment that could help change the way people with spinal cord injury and prosthetics lead their lives.
Researchers use simulations to mimic what vision could be like after a patient undergoes one of two different vision restoring therapies.
Researchers have developed a technique to make brain controlled prosthetics more precise. A pilot clinical trial of the neuroprosthesis is underway for people with paralysis and ALS.
Implanting neuroprosthetics into the posterior parietal cortex allows a paralyzed man to control a robotic arm through thought, a new study reports.
New retinal implants could restore vision up to five times better than current technology, a new study reports.
