Sensory signals transmitted from a prosthetic leg to the nervous system helps amputees perceive their prosthetic limb as part of their body. The new neurofeedback helps them perceive the new limb as significantly lighter.
A new method for analyzing brain oscillation data can detect short beta wave bursts in real-time within neural frequency bands of 20 Hertz. The method also shows how rats can increase the occurrences of these bursts.
Inter-Dream, a new immersive virtual reality system developed by researchers and artists, can ease you into the right frame of mind for a restful night's sleep.
Neurofeedback training helps reinforce brain patterns associated with motor function while participants complete imaginary motor tasks. The findings may help in the rehabilitation for stroke and other disorders that compromise motor function.
Researchers have developed a neurofeedback system which allows Parkinson's patients to voluntarily control beta wave activity in the subthalamic nucleus.
Researchers report the brains of those who practice meditation are less affected by negative feedback than those who do not meditate. The study reports this could be due to altered dopamine levels caused by the act of meditation.
