Researchers use nanotechnology to create a light sensitive film that could form the basis for a prosthetic retina.
Researchers report neurons in the PPC encode entire hand shapes. The findings are helping with the development of neuroprosthetic devices.
Researchers at UCSD have developed a new gesture recognition glove that can wirelessly translate the ASL alphabet into text. The glove can also communicate back by controlling a virtual hand and mimicking gestures.
Polydactyly, a condition where one is born with an extra finger, has significant benefits when it comes to motor skill and control. fMRI neuroimaging reveals those with extra fingers are able to move the digits independently of other fingers. The findings could help with the development of new prosthetics that extend motor abilities.
Researchers are one step closer to developing a prosthetic arm that can recreate a sense of touch through a direct brain interface.
Researchers report that in a patient who lost their hand almost three decades ago, the brain maintains an accurate representation of the missing fingers.
Findings about how the speech center is organized and how fluid speech occurs could lead to the development of neuroprosthetics capable of translating thoughts into speech, researchers report.
Combining machine learning with neuroprosthetic technology allowed a patient with paralysis to learn to control a computer cursor by utilizing brain activity without extensive daily retraining.
While neuroprosthetics that allow us to remember everything may seem like a great idea, one researcher argues such technology and abilities could have significant problems.
Researchers show that when humans use brain-computer interface technology, the brain behaves much like it does when completing simple motor skills such as waving a hand. This technology could help improve the daily lives of those who are paralyzed or lost specific abilities due to neurodegenerative diseases.
New retinal implants could restore vision up to five times better than current technology, a new study reports.
