Bleak Cyborg Future from Brain-Computer Interfaces if We’re Not Careful
The most promising method to achieve real-world BCI applications is through electroencephalography, a method of monitoring the brain’s electrical activity. EEG-based BCIs will require a number of technological advances prior to widespread use, but more importantly, they will raise a variety of social, ethical, and legal concerns. Researchers conducted a review of modern commercial brain-computer interface devices and discuss the primary technological limitations and humanitarian concerns of these devices in APL Bioengineering.
Brain Stimulation Evoking Sense of Touch Improves Control of Robotic Arm
The brain-computer interface user was able to transfer objects with a robotic arm at twice the speed of doing it without the tactile feedback.
Researchers Discover Method to Detect Motor-Related Brain Activity
Motor-related brain activity is of great interest to researchers looking for a better way to improve neurorehabilitation, and one factor to consider is the suppression of the specific rhythmic activity of neurons within the sensorimotor cortex of the brain. Studies indicate this feature suffers from variability when using traditional methods to explore it. In the journal Chaos, scientists in Russia are approaching the problem from a different angle to search for a more robust feature of brain activity associated with accomplishing motor tasks.
