Researchers call for regulations and ethical guidelines to help protect personal privacy and autonomy for those who use neurotechnologies.
Researchers report repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation can help to reverse some of the signs of Alzheimer's disease. So long as patients receive the treatments, cognitive decline appears to halt and, in some cases, cognitive abilities improve.
Following targeted motor and sensory reinnervation, a procedure that reroutes residual limb nerves to intact muscles and skin in amputees, the brain remaps both motor and sensory pathways. Additionally, researchers note, TMSR may help counteract poorly adapted cortical plasticity following amputation.
A combination of activity based training and spinal cord epidural stimulation has allowed a patient paralyzed as a result of spinal cord injury to regain voluntary movement in his legs, researchers report.
Researchers have created a convolutional neural network to better understand how the brain processes movies of natural scenes. This may be the first step in helping scientists decode how the brain makes sense of dynamic visual surroundings.
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.
A new 'click on' prosthetic arm allow can be controlled by thought.
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.
Researchers are exploring how they can transform common items of clothing to help monitor Parkinson's disease and other neurological conditions.
