Dec. 22, 2014 — An innovative way to understand how the brain works by using flashes of light, has been developed by researchers, allowing them to both 'read' and 'write' brain signals.The new ... read more

Dec. 16, 2014 — A paralyzed woman who controlled a robotic arm using just her thoughts has taken another step towards restoring her natural movements by controlling the arm with a range of complex hand ... read more

Nov. 6, 2014 — A prosthetic hand, which provides a sense of touch acute enough to handle an egg, has been completed and is now exploited by the NEBIAS project after 10 years of research. The world’s most advanced ... read more

Oct. 8, 2014 — For the first time, robotic prostheses controlled via implanted neuromuscular interfaces have become a clinical reality. A novel osseointegrated (bone-anchored) implant system gives patients new ... read more

Sep. 29, 2014 — Researchers have brought ultra-fast, nano-scale data storage within striking reach, using technology that mimics the human brain. The researchers have built a novel nano-structure that offers a new ... read more

Yoga, Meditation May Help Train Brain to Help People Control Computers With Their Mind

Sep. 25, 2014 — People who practice yoga and meditation long term can learn to control a computer with their minds faster and better than people with little or no yoga or meditation experience, new research by ... read more

Flexing the Brain: Why Learning Tasks Can Be Difficult

Aug. 27, 2014 — Learning a new skill is easier when it is related to an ability we already have. For example, a trained pianist can learn a new melody easier than learning how to hit a tennis serve. Scientists have ... read more

Aug. 14, 2014 — Gait disturbance in individuals with spinal cord injury is attributed to the interruption of neural pathways from brain to the spinal locomotor center, whereas neural circuits locate below and above ... read more

Aug. 6, 2014 — A new prosthetic system aims to identify the memory of movement in the amputee’s brain in order to manipulate the device. Controlling a prosthetic arm by just imagining a motion may now be ... read more

Aug. 6, 2014 — Scientists from Australia and France have shown that electromagnetic stimulation can alter brain organization, which may make your brain work better. In a new study, the researchers demonstrated that ... read more

June 25, 2014 — For the first time ever, a paralyzed man can move his fingers and hand with his own thoughts thanks to a new device. A 23-year-old quadriplegic is the first patient to use Neurobridge, an electronic ... read more

June 18, 2014 — A highly accurate model of how neurons behave when performing complex movements could aid in the design of robotic limbs which behave more realistically. While an action such as reaching for a cup of ... read more

June 18, 2014 — Brain cells, called astrocytes because of their star-shaped appearance, can monitor and respond to nearby neural activity, but only after being activated by the fight-or-flight chemical ... read more

June 4, 2014 — Scientists are hoping to unlock the potential of stem cells as a way of repairing neural damage to the brain. They are manipulating adult stem cells from bone marrow to produce a population of cells ... read more

Apr. 28, 2014 — Scientists have developed faster, more energy-efficient microchips based on the human brain -- 9,000 times faster and using significantly less power than a typical PC. This offers greater ... read more

Proprioceptive Feedback Helps Rehab Patients Learning to Operate Robotic Prosthetic

Apr. 9, 2014 — Proprioception significantly improved prosthetic control in the absence of vision, new research has shown. When patients are fitted with a robotic prosthetic limb, they gain control over their ... read more

Apr. 7, 2014 — When we watch a movie, our brains react to it immediately in a way similar to brains of other people. Researchers have succeeded in developing a method fast enough to observe immediate changes in the ... read more

Apr. 2, 2014 — Bioengineers are working to understand how the brain circuitry controls how we move. The goal is to develop new technologies to help patients with Parkinson's disease and other debilitating ... read more

Mar. 30, 2014 — Neural probe arrays are expected to significantly benefit the lives of amputees and people affected by spinal cord injuries or severe neuromotor diseases. By providing a direct route of communication ... read more

Mar. 6, 2014 — Scientists have created a robotic drumming prosthesis with motors that power two drumsticks. The first stick is controlled both physically by the musicians’ arms and electronically using ... read more
