Columbia Engineers Translate Brain Signals Directly into Speech
29 January 2019
Advance marks critical step toward brain-computer interfaces that hold immense promise for those with limited or no ability to speak.
In a scientific first, Columbia neuroengineers have created a system that translates thought into intelligible, recognizable speech. By monitoring someone’s brain activity, the technology can reconstruct the words a person hears with unprecedented clarity.
The Magic Touch: Bringing Sensory Feedback to Brain-Controlled Prosthetics
21 January 2019, by Chris Lo
Researchers at the University of Chicago are leading a project to introduce the sense of touch to the latest brain-controlled prosthetic arms. Adding sensory feedback to already-complex neuroprosthetics is a towering task, but offers the chance to radically transform the lives of amputees and people living with paralysis.
For centuries prosthetics have been limited to basic attachments replacing missing limbs or extremities, but in the last 20 years, artificial limbs have moved forward at an electric pace.
Here we highlight funding opportunities that have been brought to our attention to share with the community.
