Researchers Design New Brain Implant
2 December 2018, by Zachary Levin
Researchers have shown that an experimental brain implant allows individuals with paralysis to control a cursor on a tablet computer. The study marks another step toward the group’s ultimate goal of restoring forms of communication to individuals with neurological impairments, said Krishna Shenoy, professor of engineering at Stanford University and a senior author of the paper.
Stimulating the Brain – Without Major Surgery
4 December 2018, by Catriona May
One of the treatments for managing Parkinson’s Disease is to use deep electrical brain stimulation to relieve debilitating symptoms like muscle stiffness and tremors.
But it’s a daunting procedure. Surgeons must cut into the skull to expose the brain and stimulate it directly. Unsurprisingly, this kind of open brain surgery carries with it a long list of risks, including brain trauma. What if the brain could be stimulated without having to drill a hole in patients’ skulls?
Here we highlight funding opportunities that have been brought to our attention to share with the community.
