Case Western Reserve University assistant professor seeks to improve effects of neuromuscular electrical stimulation by measuring unknown role of human effort
Dustin Tyler‘s research on the neural interface between man and machine plays an integral part in the upcoming ReHAB trial and push toward the Avatar XPrize.
Brain-computer interfaces today are about where the personal computer was in the early 1980s, said A. Bolu Ajiboye, an associate professor of biomedical engineering at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland. In the not-too-distant future, he said, “they’re going to get exponentially better.”
Bill Kochevar’s lasting legacy will be his selfless commitment to helping others with quadriplegia regain control over their limbs.
$3 million grant supports creation of system to let thoughts move immobile arm in severely paralyzed patients
A $3 million grant from the United States Department of Defense is supporting a group of biomedical researchers as they look to advance a platform to allow unprecedented reanimation of paralyzed limbs under direct control of the brain.
CLEVELAND — Ground-breaking, life-changing research is happening at MetroHealth Medical Center when it comes to spinal cord injuries and giving people function back.
Cleveland FES Center using deep brain stimulation to study gait, balance impairment
A balanced discussion of the realities, the mythologies, and the concerns surrounding cutting-edge brain research. A new film, I AM HUMAN, takes a comprehensive look at the realities of neurotechnology today. The film follows three patients for whom experimental treatment may be the best option. Experts weigh in on the difficulties and the promise of neurotech.
Prostheses are morphing into mind-controlled extensions of the human body that let their wearers feel what they’re touching.
Scientists think they’ve identified a previously unknown form of neural communication that self-propagates across brain tissue, and can leap wirelessly from neurons in one section of brain tissue to another – even if they’ve been surgically severed.
