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.
A new study warns of potential social, ethical, and legal consequences of brain-machine interfaces and other technologies that interact with the human brain.
Combining EEG data and MRI brain scans, researchers discovered how, during sleep, the hippocampus sends memory information it has stored throughout the day to the cerebral cortex, allowing for memory consolidation.
Daydreaming and mind-wandering appear to occur when parts of the brain fall asleep while other areas remain awake.
A new deep neural network can accurately predict a healthy person's brain age based on EEG data collected from a sleep study.
The resting brain repeatedly and rapidly replays faster memories of what a person has recently learned and practiced. The more a person replays the memory during rest, the better they become during subsequent sessions where they practice their newly learned skill.
A new study brings into question conventional theories of the neuroscience of free will. Researchers found readiness potential reflects neural activity that underlies the formation of a decision to move, rather than the outcome to move.
Following deep anesthesia, consciousness and cognitive processes unfold over time. The prefrontal cortex is the first brain area to recover, with areas associated with reaction time and attention taking longer to return to pre-anesthesia states.
Researchers have successfully recorded brain signatures of movement symptoms and deep brain stimulation of Parkinson's patients in real time. The findings could lay the groundwork for personalize therapies for those with the neurodegenerative disease.
Propofol, the commonly used anesthetic, alters and controls the dynamics of the brain's rhythms. The findings can help doctors better monitor patients under anesthesia with the aid of EEG.
Heartbeat evoked potential provides evidence of the presence of consciousness in coma patients, a new study reveals.
