Neuromodulation Poses Next Step in Treating Heart Disease
10 October 2018, by Cynthia Weber
Jeffrey Ardell, Founding Director of the UCLA Neurocardiology Research Program of Excellence, is a fellow of the American Heart Association and has been one of the principal investigators in the field of neurocardiology for the last three decades. Ardell will be a keynote speaker at NeuroCAS, a collaborative workshop that will explore the future challenges of neurotechnology. IEEE Pulserecently spoke with him about the role neuromodulation will play in cardiac disease intervention.
Scientists Connect Three People’s Minds So They can Communicate Using Brainwaves Alone
3 October 2018, by Aristos Georgiou
Sending your thoughts directly into someone else’s brain may seem like the stuff of science fiction. But this capability could be closer to reality than you think.
A team from the University of Washington (UW) and Carnegie Mellon University has developed a system, known as BrainNet, which allows three people to communicate with one another using only the power of the brain, according to a paper published on the pre-print server arXiv.
Here we highlight funding opportunities that have been brought to our attention to share with the community.
