A newly designed compact device for recording brain activity has a customizable configuration and could help people with restricted mobility regain control of their limbs or provide advanced warnings of epileptic seizures.
Brain Computer Interface news involves science using BCI, neural interfaces, brain implant technologies, EEG control of robotics, neurobotics and more.
"Neurograins" brain-computer interfaces independently record electrical impulses and send signals wirelessly to a central hub that coordinates and processes the signals.
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.
A new study warns of potential social, ethical, and legal consequences of brain-machine interfaces and other technologies that interact with the human brain.
A new brain-computer interface could help thousands of people with neurodegenerative disorders and spinal cord injuries the ability to regain communication skills. The BCI, in combination with a machine learning algorithm, can generate words on a screen, based on a person thinking about writing the word.
The BrainGate brain-machine interface is able to transmit signals from a single neuron resolution with full broadband fidelity without physically tethering the user to a decoding system.
A closed-loop system combining AI, robotics, and BCI technology allows a quadriplegic man to control movements to cut food and feed himself.
A newly developed simultaneous brain-machine interface allowed a quadriplegic man to control two prosthetic arms with the power of his mind.

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 newly designed bionic eye is safe and stable for long-term implantation, researchers conclude following a three-month study in sheep. The discovery paves the way for human trials of the bionic device.
A new system that combines neural implants with the internet of things can remotely control the brain circuits of numerous animals across the globe simultaneously and independently via the web.
Researchers have developed a new, non-invasive method to remove dysfunctional brain circuitry and surgically treat neurological conditions. The technique, called PING, uses focused ultrasound combined with microbubbles to penetrate the blood-brain barrier and deliver neurotoxins targeted at the problematic brain area.
A new technology that measures the movement of facial muscles is 73% accurate at detecting when a person is telling a lie.
Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) can be used to modulate brain rhythms and cognitive behaviors related to "giving up" during problem-solving tasks.
Virtual reality is helping researchers uncover some of the secrets of anxiety. Using VR, study participants were able to distinguish between safe and dangerous environments in a game. However, brain scans of those with anxiety showed increased activity in the insula and dorsomedial prefrontal cortex while in a safe zone, indicating their brains were associating the safe environment with threat or danger.
SAINT, a new intensive and individualized form of transcranial magnetic stimulation reduces symptoms of depression within days of treatment. 80% of the people administered SAINT reported remission from depression symptoms that lasted for months following treatment.
A new study aims to assess the usefulness of a new technology that could speed up and enhance the clearing of metabolic waste via the glymphatic system as a person sleeps.
Studying rats in a virtual reality maze, researchers discover certain hippocampal neurons play a vital role in a specific mechanism of navigation.
A new, improved DBS technique that targets specific subpopulations of neurons in the globus pallidus with short bursts of stimulation shows promising results as a treatment for Parkinson's disease.
