Researchers created a form of artificial vision for a blind woman with the aid of a brain implant position in the visual cortex. The results pave the way for the creation of visual brain prosthetics to help the blind to regain sight.
A new touch-sensing glove can feel pressure and other tactile stimuli, researchers report. The glove has applications for those with motor function disorders and could be adapted from virtual reality gaming experiences.
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.
