Noninvasive spinal stimulation and a robotic exoskeleton enable a completely paralyzed man to move his legs voluntarily, researchers report.
A newly developed cognitive hearing aid can monitor brain activity to determine who a person is listening to and amplifies that voice to assist the listener. The technology can help a hearing impaired person follow a conversation in a noisy environment far more easily.
Hailed by many as a breakthrough for neuroscience research, a new study reports brain-in-a-dish models may not be as useful as reported previously. The study reports instead of differentiating normally into the brain's distinctive cell types, cerebral organoids often express mixed genes normally found in different kinds of cells.
Using magnetic beads implanted into muscle tissue within the amputated residuum of animals, researchers have created a more precise way to control prosthetic limbs.
Study explains the human tendency to look at a situation, or object, that needs improvement in different contexts, and instead, generally believe adding an element is a better solution than removing one.
Researchers develop a framework to show how neuroprosthetics can be used as a tool for examining how and where the brain encodes new information.
Using minimally invasive brain implants, researchers evoked the sense of touch in patients who had lost tactile sensations. The technique could be used to restore tactile sensations to those with paralysis and neuropathy.
A new study reports researchers have successfully used electrical stimulation on the spinal cord of a paralyzed patient to allow him to stand, move his legs and make stepping motions.
A newly developed biodegradable microcapsule that delivers nerve growth factor guides the development of hippocampal neurons in in-vitro experiments.
Researchers report a new neuroimaging device can successfully measure brain synchronization during a conversation.
