Brain Regions Take Short Naps During Wakefulness Which Can Lead Performance Errors

Have you ever lost your keys or stuck the milk in the cupboard and the cereal in the refrigerator and wondered what happened? Researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison have a new explanation.

EEG Study Illuminates Word Rotation In The Brain With Implications For Dyslexia

Human beings understand words reflected in a mirror without thinking about it, just like those written normally, at least in a few instants. Researchers from the Basque Centre on Cognition, Brain and Languages (Spain) have shown this in a study that could also help to increase our understanding of the phenomenon of dyslexia.

EEG Technology May Revolutionize Assessment Of And Learning In Children With Severe Physical And Neurological Impairments

A new tool which measures brain waves in children with physical and neurological impairments, such as cerebral palsy, is being developed by researchers at the University of Hertfordshire. Hock Gan, a PhD student at the University’s School of Computer Science is working with Ian Glasscock at Games for Life to use an electroencephalography (EEG) headset […]

Alpha Brain Rhythm Predicts Real-Time Sleep Stability And May Lead To More Precise Sleep Medications

A new study finds that a brain rhythm (alpha) considered the hallmark of wakefulness not only persists inconspicuously during sleep, but also signifies an individual’s vulnerability to disturbance by the outside world. The electroencephalography (EEG)-based study results were published on March 3 in the open access journal, PLoS One; check the end of this report for a […]

EEG Brain-Computer Interface Learns To Read Human Mental Intention

You may have heard of virtual keyboards controlled by thought, brain-powered wheelchairs, and neuro-prosthetic limbs. But powering these machines can be downright tiring, a fact that prevents the technology from being of much use to people with disabilities, among others. Professor José del R. Millán and his team at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne […]
