Chip implanted in obese people’s brains will zap them when they think about food

Sophie Curtis | The UK Sun | Source URL Six morbidly obese people have agreed to take part in a clinical trial of a brain chip that zaps them when they think about food. The chip, known as a responsive neurostimulation system (RNS), was originally developed by medical technology company […]

US Military funds mind-reading helmet that may let soldiers TELEPATHICALLY control robots or drones and could even give the gift of sight to the blind

Ian Randall | The Daily Mail | Source URL US military research body DARPA is funding a project to create a mind-reading helmet that could let soldiers fly drones and control robots telepathically. Led by Texas-based researchers, the project will start by trying to read the vision of one person and […]

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

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

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, […]
