Next-gen EEG could help bring back lost brain function

Next-gen EEG could help bring back lost brain function
A device under development at the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and Stanford University could help bring back lost brain function by measuring how the brain responds to therapies that stimulate it with electric current. The approach could open new avenues for treating brain disorders and selectively switching brain activities on and off, says Anthony Norcia, a professor of psychology at Stanford who initiated the project.

PPC region transforms seeing into doing

PPC region transforms seeing into doing
A new study in Nature Communications, a team from MIT’s Picower Institute for Learning and Memory provides evidence that one crucial brain region called the posterior parietal cortex (PPC) plays an important role in converting vision into action. “Vision in the service of action begins with the eyes, but then that information has to be transformed into motor commands,” said senior author Mriganka Sur, the Paul E. and Lilah Newton Professor of Neuroscience in the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences.

Neural implants modulate microstructures in the brain

Neural implants modulate microstructures in the brain
The diversity of structures and functions of the brain is becoming increasingly realised in research today. Key structures exist in the brain that regulate emotion, anxiety, happiness, memory, and mobility. These structures can come in a huge variety of shapes and sizes and can all be physically near one another. Dysfunction of these structures and circuits linking them are common causes of many neurologic and neuropsychiatric diseases.

First successful implants of StimRouter Neuromodulation system

First successful implants of StimRouter Neuromodulation system
Bioness has announced the first successful implants of its StimRouter Neuromodulation System for the treatment of chronic pain at Women's College Hospital in Toronto, Canada. Following approval by Health Canada in January, the peripheral nerve stimulation device is now available in Canada, the United States and Europe, giving patients a non-opioid, permanent solution for the treatment of chronic pain of a peripheral nerve origin, excluding pain in the craniofacial region.

The neurons that rewrite traumatic memories

The neurons that rewrite traumatic memories
Neuroscientists at EPFL have located the cells that help reprogram long-lasting memories of traumatic experiences towards safety, a first in neuroscience. The study is published in Science. Memories of traumatic experiences can lead to mental health issues such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), which can destroy a person’s life. It is currently estimated that almost a third of all people will suffer from fear- or stress-related disorders at one point in their lives.

Surfing through the patterns that form our memory

Surfing through the patterns that form our memory
The coordination of neural activity across widespread brain networks is essential for human cognition. Researchers have long assumed that oscillations in the brain, commonly measured for research purposes, brain-computer interfacing, and clinical tests, were stationary signals that occurred independently at separate brain regions.

Lab-grown neurons improve breathing in rats after spinal cord injury

Lab-grown neurons improve breathing in rats after spinal cord injury
Researchers from Drexel University College of Medicine and the University of Texas at Austin improved respiratory function in rodents with spinal cord injuries after successfully transplanting a special class of neural cells, called V2a interneurons. Their results, published in the Journal of Neurotrauma, indicate that these lab-grown cells have the potential to one day help paralysed patients breathe without a ventilator.

Confocal laser endomicroscopy receives FDA clearance

Confocal laser endomicroscopy receives FDA clearance
Mauna Kea Technologies has announced that it has received FDA 510(k) clearance of the Cellvizio 100 series F400 and F800 with a Confocal Miniprobe, the CranioFlex, to be used during neurosurgical procedures. This marks the 15th U.S. FDA 510(k) clearance of Cellvizio and the first-ever FDA clearance for CLE applications in neurosurgery.

Surgical technique improves control of prosthetic limb

Surgical technique improves control of prosthetic limb
Humans can accurately sense the position, speed, and torque of their limbs, even with their eyes shut. This sense, known as proprioception, allows humans to precisely control their body movements. Despite significant improvements to prosthetic devices in recent years, researchers have been unable to provide this essential sensation to people with artificial limbs, limiting their ability to accurately control their movements.

Eye tracking technology enhances AR/VR experiences

Eye tracking technology enhances AR/VR experiences
At its Imec Technology Forum in Antwerp (ITF Belgium 2018), Imec announced a new wireless eye-tracking technology based on electro-oculography (EOG), an ophthalmology technique used to examine eyes and record eye movement.
