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...

Researchers test noninvasive brain stimulation for motor recovery after spinal cord injury

With funding from the Department of Defense, research facilities in Ohio and New Jersey will conduct a multi-site study of transcranial stimulation for recovery of upper limb function in individuals with chronic spinal cord...

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...

SDSU’s Brain Chip Could Eliminate Spinal Cord Injury Paralysis

Researchers at San Diego State University and two other schools won a $15 million grant to continue their work on a brain chip that could help people with traumatic spinal cord injuries undo the effects of paralysis, it was announced Monday.

A pacemaker in the brain for spinal cord injury?

Deep-brain stimulation, a technique used for more than a decade to manage the symptoms of Parkinson's disease, may help restore greater function and more natural movement to patients with spinal cord injuries that have...
