Brain Implants and Wearables Let Paralyzed People Move Again

A “neural bypass” routes signals around the damaged spinal cord, potentially restoring both movement and sensation In 2015, a group of neuroscientists and engineers assembled to watch a man play the video game Guitar Hero....

A quadriplegic patient used prosthetics to feed himself. His brain was the guide

Here's a look at the work at the intersection of brain-computer interface, robotics and AI taking place at Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab. When there’s dessert involved, most people cut a sweet treat and eat...

Neuralink Reveals Working Brain-to-Machine Interface

In a live demonstration, Elon Musk revealed that Neuralink has successfully installed a working brain-to-machine interface inside a pig. Elon Musk’s brain-hacking company Neuralink demonstrated a working brain-to-machine interface in a live demonstration on August...

Paralyzed man has sense of touch restored by brain-machine interface

This is the first BMI to restore movement and touch simultaneously Ten years ago, while on vacation in North Carolina, Ian Burkhart broke his neck in a diving accident. The diagnosis was as life-changing as...

Repairing a highway: how can we fix spinal cord injury?

The functional sophistication of the spinal cord can have devastating consequences. Will modern scientific developments replicate its functions? The “central nervous system” delicately orchestrates the complex concerto of our mental and physical faculties, from perception...

Neuroprosthetic Enables Tetraplegic Patient to Walk

A tetraplegic is one who has suffered partial or total loss of use of all four limbs and torso. Each year, it is estimated that 250,000 to 500,000 people worldwide suffer a spinal cord injury,...

The Lancet Neurology: Pioneering study suggests that an exoskeleton for tetraplegia could be feasible

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1GyJBBB8O_M A 4-limb robotic system controlled by brain signals helped a tetraplegic man to move his arms and walk using a ceiling-mounted harness for balance A four-limb robotic system controlled by brain signals helped a tetraplegic...

Brain-controlled, non-invasive muscle stimulation allows chronic paraplegics to walk

In another major clinical breakthrough of the Walk Again Project, a nonprofit international consortium aimed at developing new neurorehabilitation protocols, technologies, and therapies for spinal cord injury, two patients with paraplegia regained the ability...

This Neural Implant Accesses Your Brain Through the Jugular Vein

The brain-computer interface lets paralyzed people type using their thoughts. Brain-Computer Interface For the first time, doctors are preparing to test a brain-computer interface that can be implanted onto a human brain, no open surgery required. The...

Transforming Thoughts to Movement Offers New Hope for Spinal Cord Injury Patients

What if paralyzed limbs could move using only the power of one’s thoughts? Borrowing a story line from the realm of science fiction, a team of researchers at The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis—together...
