Improve your memory, treat dementia, alleviate depression and ease migraine with a ZAP to the brain

Thea Jordan | The Daily Mail | Source URL Though it may sound like something from science fiction, brain zapping — or neuro-electrostimulation, as it’s known — is already being used to treat a variety of ailments. Researchers at Boston University recently reported that zapping the brains of older people […]

Brain implants, AI, and a speech synthesizer have turned brain activity into robot words

Brain implants, AI, and a speech synthesizer have turned brain activity into robot words

MIT Technology Review Science Daily Source URL Neural networks have been used to turn words that a human has heard into intelligible, recognizable speech. It could be a step toward technology that can one day decode people’s thoughts. A challenge: Thanks to fMRI scanning, we’ve known for decades that when […]

New wireless ‘pacemaker for the brain’ prevents seizures with fine-tuned stimulation – and adapts itself in real time to the patient’s needs

New wireless ‘pacemaker for the brain’ prevents seizures with fine-tuned stimulation – and adapts itself in real time to the patient’s needs

The Daily Mail | Source URL A wireless ‘pacemaker for the brain’ could offer new treatment for neurological disorders. The WAND, developed by engineers at the University of California, Berkeley, can listen to and stimulate electric current in the brain at the same time, potentially delivering ‘fine-tuned’ treatments for patients […]

Brains of 3 People Have Been Successfully Connected, Enabling Them to Share Thoughts

David Nield | Science Alert | Source URL Neuroscientists have successfully hooked up a three-way brain connection to allow three people to share their thoughts – and in this case, play a Tetris-style game. The team thinks this wild experiment could be scaled up to connect whole networks of people, […]

Want to replace painful memories with happy ones? ‘Total Recall’ technology will soon let scientists tweak our brain waves… but it may allow cyber criminals to ‘steal’ our minds

Want to replace painful memories with happy ones? ‘Total Recall’ technology will soon let scientists tweak our brain waves… but it may allow cyber criminals to ‘steal’ our minds

Steven Adams | The Daily Mail | Source URL It’s a dream long held by science-fiction writers: that one day we will be able to erase painful memories and create happy ones. But now scientists at Oxford University say that fiction is closer to reality than we might have thought. […]

This is how hackers can wipe your memory and steal your thoughts

Charlie Osborne | ZDNet | Source URL What if a hacker could one day enter your mind at will, stealing information, tweaking or eradicating memories, or causing debilitating damage? It might seem like a concept born from Altered Carbon’s stack technologies, but according to cybersecurity firm Kaspersky Lab and the […]
