A Non-Invasive Brain-Computer Interface for Completely Locked-In Patients: Interview with Dr. Ujwal Chaudhary

Researchers have developed a non-invasive brain-computer interface (BCI) for completely locked-in patients. This is the first time that these patients, with complete motor paralysis but an intact cognitive state, have been able to reliably communicate. A completely locked-in state involves the loss of all motor control, including that of the eye mu (Read more...)

Stentrode Minimally Invasive Brain-Machine Interface: Interview with Dr. Thomas Oxley, Neurologist at Royal Melbourne Hospital

Australian researchers at the Royal Melbourne Hospital and the University of Melbourne have developed an electrode that can record brain activity from the motor cortex, without the need for invasive brain surgery. The electrode, called a stentrode, is implanted into a blood vessel in the brain using minimally invasive surgical techniques. The (Read more...)
