NeuroVigil's iBrain may help people with A.L.S., like Stephen Hawking, communicate using advanced machine-brain interfaces.

 

About the Hawking experiment: "The idea is to see if Stephen can use his mind to create a consistent and repeatable pattern that a computer can translate into, say, a word or letter or a command for a computer."

Michael Lopez Jr. Celebration Of Life - Saying Good By to All American "Magic Mike" RIP: 1/13/2013

★ Final Farewell To Mike Lopez Jr.★

It is hard to imagine anyone who followed football in Oregon in the 1980′s not remembering his name. It struck fear into many an opponent and his #19 was called and shouted often at Oregon State where he did some legendary things. He was one of the greatest athletes to every come out of Oregon and was an All American and named Gatorade Player Of The Year. The 1981 Graduate of Aloha was truly special in every way and was known by those closest to him as “Magic Mike”! ♥

To everyone who cares, you should not be "okay" , do something. Real life. Real facts. Real me - ALS : Beth Popa Castelvetere

To everyone who cares, you should not be "okay" , do something. Real life. Real facts. Real me - ALS : Beth Popa Castelvetere | #ALS AWARENESS #LouGehrigsDisease #PARKINSONS | Scoop.it

Beth Popa Castelvetere :  Forgive me if I offend anyone in any way. The outpouring of love and support I have received since my Trickett shed her earthly shell has been nothing short of amazing. Honestly, I am not "okay." I am not at "peace." Every second of every day I am reminded of my beautiful friend not being here. I have no distraction, I have no "go on." I am living every second with what took her away. A horrifying, gruesome hell. I won't be ”okay " I won't be at "peace." Complete bullshit. No one with a heart should be "okay" with any of this. PEOPLE THIS IS THE TIME TO DO SOMETHING. Now look at my picture.... Trickett Fewell Wendler, myself and another beautiful mother (who I am honored to call my friend) Jodi Oliver. I created an ALS moms private group last February. It is here I found the bond of true motherhood. Jodi is a part of this bond. Jodi is now coming to the end of her ALS journey. My heart has never known so much pain. My pain pales in comparison to the pain each of their children is facing, six children left without their mothers. This picture was less than a year ago. Now really I'm supposed to be "okay?" Unf**king acceptable. I think this picture speaks for itself. Jodi, I love you my thoughts are with you and your family. To everyone who cares, you should not be "okay" , do something. Real life. Real facts. Real me.

Report from the First NIH Consensus Conference to Define the Neuropathological Criteria for the Diagnosis of CTE- National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke | #ALS AWARENESS #LouGehrigsDisease #PARKINSONS | Scoop.it

n 1928, the pathologist Harrison Stanford Martland described the clinical features of a distinct neuropsychiatric disorder in boxers known as the “punch-drunk syndrome.” Several decades later this became known as “dementia pugilistica,” reflecting a belief that it was a disease almost exclusive to former boxers.  More recent neuropathological studies have identified this condition in persons with other forms of head injury, including athletes exposed to repetitive brain injury in a wide range of sports. Thus, almost 90 years after Dr. Martland’s first.......................

Frates' dream of becoming big leaguer comes true

Frates' dream of becoming big leaguer comes true | #ALS AWARENESS #LouGehrigsDisease #PARKINSONS | Scoop.it
BOSTON -- Once a standout Division I college baseball player, Pete Frates never got the chance to be a Major Leaguer. That changed on Monday, when the Red Sox signed the Beverly, Mass., native to a ceremonial contract before an Opening Day crowd of 37,203 at Fenway Park. Frates, a former team captain at nearby Boston College, was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) in 2012. He has spent much of his time since working to raise awareness about the debilitating disease, which weakens muscles to the point where those who suffer from it cannot speak or walk.
