Neural interfaces, brain-computer interfaces and other devices that blur the lines between mind and machine have extraordinary potential. These technologies could transform medicine and fundamentally change how we interact with technology and each other. At the same time, neural interfaces raise critical ethical concerns over issues such as privacy, autonomy, human rights and equality of […]
A clinical research publication led by Stanford University investigators has demonstrated that a brain-to-computer hookup can enable people with paralysis to type via direct brain control at the highest speeds and accuracy levels reported to date.
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 […]
