Researchers have created a new musical instrument that can be controlled by thought alone. The instrument, dubbed the Encephalophone, may help as a rehabilitation tool for those with motor disabilities, the Frontiers in Human Neuroscience study reports.
There is new hope for people suffering from memory related problems. Researchers have successfully implanted a neuroprosthetic system into the brains of epilepsy patients that uses the person's own memory patterns to enhance memory encoding and recall.
Researchers have developed a new method of 3D printing that allows for electronics to be printed on the hand. The team also printed biological cells onto a skin wound of a mouse. They hope this new technique could lead to a new method for providing skin grafts and wound care.
A new wearable device appears to help those with vision loss avoid collisions with high level objects, researchers report.
California governor allocates an initial grant of $2 million to the Cal-BRAIN initiative to help map the brain.
Researchers have demonstrated working electronic circuits designed using methods that resemble Darwinian evolution and which are closer to the natural networks of the human brain.
Researchers have developed what they have dubbed a 'brain stethoscope', a device capable of turning EEG brain wave data into sound. The device is able to detect epileptic seizures that do not result in convulsions.
An international team of researchers have created remote controlled nanobots from a biodegradable material that they believe could assist doctors in diagnosing diseases and delivering drugs to target sites.
