Obesity and higher body mass are linked to decreased cerebral blood flow. Lower cerebral blood flow is associated with an increased risk of Alzheimer's disease and a range of psychiatric disorders.
New advances in brain computer interface technology allows three people with movement impairments to control a cursor by imagining their hand movements.
Researchers report a brain computer interface can enable those with paralysis to directly operate tablet technology just by thinking about cursor movements and clicks.
EEG and brain machine interface allows amputees to move a prosthetic hand, a new study reports.
Researchers have developed new technology that reads signals directly from the brain that could pave the way for people with movement disorders to communicate.
Coupling a non invasive brain computer interface with a virtual walking avatar may help those with gait disorders to regain control of their movements, a new study reports.
Researchers were able to restore the sense of touch to a 28-year-old who suffered a spinal cord injury with the help of new brain-computer interface technology.
Researchers electronically linked the brains of pairs of rats for the first time, enabling them to communicate directly to solve simple behavioral puzzles. A further test of this work successfully linked the brains of two animals thousands of miles apart - one in Durham, N.C., and one in Natal, Brazil.
Researchers have been able to link the brains of primates and the brains of rodents, allowing the animals to exchange motor and sensory information to control movement or complete computations in real time.
DARPA's HAPTIX program seeks to provide amputees with natural touch sensations.
