Brainwave-Reading Implant Helps Paralyzed Man Who Can't Speak

A paralyzed man who cannot speak or type was able to spell out over 1,000 words using a neuroprosthetic device that translates his brain waves into full sentences, US researchers said Tuesday.

Scientists used a tiny brain implant to help a blind teacher see

A former science teacher who's been blind for 16 years became able to see letters, discern objects' edge thanks to a visual prosthesis that includes a camera and a brain implant.

Neuralink implants are close to ready for human testing

Roughly 1,000 electrodes will be inserted into the targeted collection of neurons, and those will connect to an implant above the surface of the brain. Musk said that it plans to do initial testing with tetraplegics. 

Will Elon Musk's Neuralink Shape the Future of Humanity?

The specific objective of Neuralink is to develop ultra-high bandwidth brain-machine interfaces to connect humans and computers. Practically, this materializes as a chip that is implanted into the brain.

Elon Musk says Neuralink will do brain implants 'within a year'

Elon Musk has a vision of linking human brains to computers in order to avoid our species from being outpaced by artificial intelligence – and this dream is set to become a reality.

Brain implants help paralyzed people use tablet apps

Devices that eavesdrop on neural activity can help paralyzed people command computer tablets to stream music, text friends, check the weather or surf the internet.

For the First Time Scientists Have Boosted Human Memory

A professor from the University of Southern California has demonstrated the use of a brain implant to improve the human memory.

Tiny Prosthesis Could Help to Restore Vision and Hearing in Humans

FlatScope would be implanted between the skull and cortex in order to communicate with functioning areas of the brain that can process sight and sound.

Elon Musk's latest target: Brain-computer interfaces

Tech billionaire Elon Musk is announcing a new venture called Neuralink focused on linking brains to computers.

Stanford researchers develop brain-controlled typing for people with paralysis

A clinical research publication led by Stanford University investigators has demonstrated that a brain-to-computer hookup can enable people with paralysis to type via direct brain control at the highest speeds and accuracy levels reported to date.

First at-home brain implant lets "locked in" woman talk, venture outdoors

A paralysed woman, who is "almost completely locked in," has become the first person to use a fully implanted brain-computer interface at home in day-to-day life without constant doctor supervision.

Brain surface stimulation provides 'touch' feedback to direct movement

Researchers have now used direct stimulation of the human brain surface to provide this basic sensory feedback through artificial electrical signals, enabling a person to control movement while performing a simple task: opening and closing his hand.

Brain-sensing technology allows typing at 12 words per minute

Technology for reading signals directly from the brain could provide a way for people with movement disabilities to communicate.

How The Power To Control Objects With Our Minds Stopped Being Science Fiction

You may now be wondering how long it will be before we can unlock a door, turn on a kettle, or even send an email simply by thinking about it.

Stentrode: Moving with the power of thought

A device the size of a matchstick, implanted next to the brain’s motor cortex, could one day help paralysed people move their limbs.
