A person with ALS uses a brain implant to control a computer cursor, enabling them to enter text using the Dasher interface. Here’s the article about the tech this ALS patient is using: http://spectrum.ieee.org/tech-talk/biomedical/bionics/neural-implant-enables-paralyzed-als-patient-to-type-6-words-per-minute
What if you could control devices just with your thoughts? Pioneering neuroscientist Miguel Nicolelis illustrates how state-of-the-art research on brain-machine interfaces makes it possible for the brains of primates to interact directly with mechanical, computational and virtual devices without any interference of the body muscles or sensory organs. Going beyond the brain-controlled exoskeleton that makes […]
Using an electroencephalogram (EEG) based system, the ability to walk has been restored following a spinal cord injury. The preliminary proof-of-concept study shows that it is possible to use direct brain control to get a person’s legs to walk again. The participant, who had been paralyzed for five years, walked along a 3.66m long course […]
Neuroengineer Rajesh Rao of the University of Washington is developing brain-computer interfaces, devices that can monitor and extract brain activity to enable a machine or computer to accomplish tasks, from playing video games to controlling a prosthetic arm. “Mysteries of the Brain” is produced by NBC Learn in partnership with the NSF.
