A new brain-computer interface could help thousands of people with neurodegenerative disorders and spinal cord injuries the ability to regain communication skills. The BCI, in combination with a machine learning algorithm, can generate words on a screen, based on a person thinking about writing the word.
A new brain-machine interface allows wearers to wirelessly control a wheelchair or robotic arm by simply imagining an action. The neuroprosthesis could help improve the quality of life for those with disabilities.
Retrofitting wireless earbuds to detect neural signals and relaying the data back to smartphones via Bluetooth, researchers say the new earEEG system could have multiple applications, including health monitoring.
