IEEE Brain will feature one recording from the 2018 Brain Initiative Workshop on Advanced Neuro Technologies each month.

This month, Dr. Tim Constandinou of Imperial College London gives a presentation on a platform technology encompassing a family of innovations that together aim to tackle key challenges with existing implantable brain machine interfaces.

First-ever noninvasive mind-controlled robotic arm

20 June 2019, by Emily Durham


A team of researchers from Carnegie Mellon has made a breakthrough in the field of noninvasive robotic device control. Using a noninvasive brain-computer interface, they have developed the first-ever successful mind-controlled robotic arm exhibiting the ability to continuously track and follow a computer cursor.

Specific patterns of brain activity are thought to underlie specific processes or computations important for various mental faculties, such as memory. One such “brain signal” that has received a lot of attention recently is known as a “sharp wave ripple”—a short, wave-shaped burst of high-frequency oscillations.
