According to science journal Plos One the international team of researchers from Starlab Barcelona in Spain and Strasbourg successfully achieved brain-to-brain transmission of information between humans. For brain-to-brain transmission the researchers used electroencephalogram (EEG) and image-guided transcranial magnetic simulation technologies to transmit the greetings between test subjects from India to France in one study and from Spain to France in another.Electrodes were attached to a participant’s scalp on the emitter end.
Students from the American university of Minnesota developed a method of control over small helicopter by force of thought — technology of transformation of electric impulses of a brain directly to operating signals, and as a result the helicopter by force of thought flied not much worse, than with traditional manual management.
In experiment participated five people each of which learned to operate successfully the helicopter without hands. For force of thought it was used an electroencephalograph. On it arrive impulses from 64 electrodes on the special hat, fixing electric activity of the head skin, connected with various zones of a brain.
The researchers from University of Texas have plan to involve EEG caps, which uses the energy of brainwave for controlling tablets and smartphones. Samsung also is a partner of researchers of this plan of brainwave technology. In stage of stream, a complement is unwieldy and directed during disabilities, though, Samsung submits alternative methods, and this can be a judicious conclusion. The participants asked to carry capital letters of EEG, which is the magnitude electric activity along their scalp. Then they mean to do selections with focusing on an idol, which flashes during the magnitude graphic, that a complement recognizes as an electrical pattern. The correct complement is in a ballpark from 80 to 95 percent, and the users are means to do selections during each 5 seconds. As a result, for making the complement approachable, the researchers want to raise EEG hats, which are more available and reduction.
PossessedHand stimulator is a device that will make your fingers move without the signals in the brain.
The system, developed jointly by scientists at Tokyo University and by Sony, is a pair of soft straps which are fixed on the man’s hand, and built-in straps electrodes to send the muscles of the nervous system stimulating pulses of medium intensity.
Professor Henry Markram, intends to create the largest computer in the world, which will be analogue of the human brain. The Human Brain Project, which will be implemented at the Federal Polytechnic School of Lausanne on the shores of Lake Geneva, aims to create a carbon copy of the brain in 2023.
Devices that pick up brain waves and translate them into mechanical action are being developed to control prosthetic limbs, robots and video games. Soon you’ll be able to control your television and phone. But now comes the BrainDriver, a car that is driven entirely by your thoughts.It’s a new application of the brain-computer interface to allow human drivers to control their car without a steering wheel.Researchers, led by led by Raul Rojas, a professor of artificial intelligence at the Freie Universitat Berlin, use an “Emotiv neroheadset” to record brain activity in the driver. The neuroheadset is a electroencephalography, or EEG, originally developed for video games by San Francisco-based company Emotiv. Before a driver even steps into the car, they have to go through several rounds of mental training. That’s when the driver learns how to move virtual objects just by thinking of moving them.
One of the biggest breakthroughs in the field of prosthetics has been made recently.The researchers could develop artificial limbs which are controlled by the brain user. Researchers are working to increase the flexibility of their prostheses.Their latest invention works in the following way: the user must consider the motion, after which the brain signals detected by sensors and transmitted to the prosthetic limb. it is impossible not to note that most amputees have lost control over the nerves. However, for restoring this control, Mr. Sullivan can use the new prosthesis. At present, the researchers at Northwestern University in the U.S.are studying different models of the brain to find out whether they can be used artificial limbs or not, according to Tech2.0.
