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.
The implant was designed to detect signals associated with intended movements and then transmit these signals to a Bluetooth interface.
The journal topic includes several articles written by Dr. Shaikh and FES Center Investigator, Fatema Ghasia, MD.
Amputees use new, naturalistic sensory device at home for daily tasks, gain greater sense of personal well-being and connection to loved ones
Acute and chronic pain affect at least 100 million U.S. adults and cost the nation up to $630 billion in medical treatment and lost productivity annually.
The Cleveland FES Center congratulates Bolu Ajiboye, PhD and Robert Kirsch, PhD on receiving first place for the 2018 International Annual Brain Computer Interface (BCI) Research Award, for their project entitled “Restoring Functional Reach-to-Grasp in a Person with Chronic Tetraplegia using Implanted Functional Electrical Stimulation and Intracortical Brain-Computer Interfaces.” The Brain Computer Interface Award is…
BrainGate2 research by Bolu Ajiboye, PhD and Robert Kirsch, PhD is prominently featured in chapter nine of the recently published book, The Performance Cortex: How Neuroscience Is Redefining Athletic Genius by Zach Schonbrun. Whether it is timing a 95 mph fastball or reaching for a coffee mug, movement requires a complex suite of computations that many take…
Technologies that restore movement and the sense of touch are helping people to overcome the physical effects of stroke and spinal-cord injury.
