The Next Generation Of Brainwave-Control Helmets Looks Much Cooler

Check out the future of brain-computer interfaces. After we poked fun at the electrode-strewn skullcap you'd need to control a pinball machine's flippers yesterday, a researcher sent us this picture of the next-generation EMG helmet, that doesn't need direct contact. » 3/03/10 9:30am 3/03/10 9:30am

An End to Paralysis with Artificial Brain-to-Muscle Connectors

Click to view » 10/15/08 10:00am 10/15/08 10:00am Using a computerized connector between the brain and muscles in the body, scientists have been able to restore movement to paralyzed limbs. A group of neuroscientists report in Nature today that they used a brain-computer interface to join the motor cortex of an ape to the muscles in its wrist. After…
