New Microelectronic Device Maps Brain Activity In Unprecedented Detail

A team of researchers co-led by the University of Pennsylvania has developed and tested a new high-resolution, ultra-thin device capable of recording brain activity from the cortical surface without having to use penetrating electrodes. The device could make possible a whole new generation of brain-computer interfaces for treating neurological and psychiatric illness and research. The […]

A Drug Contained In Widely Used Over-The-Counter Cough Medicines May Protect Against Multiple Sclerosis Symptoms

A drug widely used in over-the-counter cough medicines appears to protect against symptoms of multiple sclerosis, a finding that could offer a new and inexpensive therapy for a condition with few effective treatment options, a study by UC Davis researchers has found. The study is available online in the journal Neurobiology of Disease.

Wheelchair Yoga Speeds Healing In Patients With Debilitating Medical Conditions

While making dinner for his daughters one night, James Abram, 59, collapsed on his kitchen floor. He was rushed to Loyola University Medical Center where doctors determined he had suffered a stroke. He later suffered a second stroke and underwent emergency surgery to reduce life-threatening swelling in his brain. Included in this report is a […]

The Brain Speaks – Scientists Decode Words From Brain Signals

In an early step toward letting severely paralyzed people speak with their thoughts, University of Utah researchers translated brain signals into words using two grids of 16 microelectrodes implanted beneath the skull but atop the brain. The Journal of Neural Engineering’s September issue is publishing Greger’s study showing the feasibility of translating brain signals into […]
