[ARTICLE] Brain-computer interface boosts motor imagery practice during stroke recovery

Abstract

Objective: Motor imagery (MI) is assumed to enhance poststroke motor recovery; yet, its benefits are debatable. Brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) can provide instantaneous and quantitative measure of cerebral functions modulated by MI. 238 more words

Mind-controlled drones promise a future of hands-free flying

There have been tentative steps into thought-controlled drones in the past, but Tekever and a team of European researchers just kicked things up a notch. They’ve successfully tested Brainflight, a project that uses your mental activity (detected through a cap) to pilot an unmanned aircraft. 172 more words

Wireless Brain-Computer Interface

I am fascinated about brain-computer interfaces and all the research around using computers to try to recreate some brain functionalities.

In the United States, a team at the Brown University and BlackRock Microsystems  have been working on a new interface that would work wirelessly and created a device that could fit in the palm of your hand… 41 more words
