Mapping Emotions in the Brain

Mapping Emotions in the Brain | Budoucnost | Scoop.it
We don't know what processes give rise to emotion, we're not sure how different emotions relate to one another, and we don't know how emotion is represented in the brain.

Data on the brain: ‘Wet computing’ liquid implants could boost intelligence

Data on the brain: ‘Wet computing’ liquid implants could boost intelligence | Budoucnost | Scoop.it
American scientists believe they have found a way that could one day make people more intelligent. This could be done by implanting data stored in liquid, enabling things like photos and documents to be stored in one’s brain.

Fear, Safety and the Role of Sleep in Human PTSD

Fear, Safety and the Role of Sleep in Human PTSD | Budoucnost | Scoop.it

The effectiveness of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) treatment may hinge significantly upon sleep quality, report researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine and Veterans Affairs San Diego Healthcare System in a paper published today in the Journal of Neuroscience.



“The implication is that we should try treating sleep before treating the daytime symptoms of PTSD and see if those who are sleeping better when they start exposure therapy derive more benefit.”

Karlos Svoboda's insight:

Dear researchers do you understand that  eletrical shocks or high tones are torture for everyone. Wish you testing on your bodies.

Enter the first cyborg-type robot (2014-09-01) - ISO

Enter the first cyborg-type robot (2014-09-01) - ISO | Budoucnost | Scoop.it
What if cyborgs were real? Partly robot, partly man, functioning as one. No, we are not talking science fiction anymore. The first one is here and his name is HAL.

 

Do you know someone in a wheelchair? What if I tell you there is a way that this person can walk again? That all it takes is a robot suit that reads your mind. What if you too could wear this exoskeleton to gain the strength of a Hulk or a Superman and help people? Would you believe me if I said all this was possible? Japanese robotics company CYBERDYNE has created one such exoskeleton, that is, a device designed to be worn by a human. This Hybrid Assistive Limb (HAL) can detect and reproduce the wearer’s intention to move by reading signals from the brain.

Cyborg Moths, Wired From Birth, Could Serve as Living Drones - D-brief | DiscoverMagazine.com

Cyborg Moths, Wired From Birth, Could Serve as Living Drones - D-brief | DiscoverMagazine.com | Budoucnost | Scoop.it
A controllable cyborg bug could, theoretically, operate like tiny drones that could carry out mapping or reconnaissance missions.

 

Hacking an animal is possible because animals are, in part, electric: movement (in moths or in you) happens when the brain sends an electric signal to a muscle. A controllable cyborg bug could, theoretically, operate like a tiny robot — one that’s been honed by millions of years of evolution.

Karlos Svoboda's insight:

Warning before insects and animals with implants, maybe someone is watching!!!  The biobugs could also carry tiny payloads to achieve their missions: a microphone to pick up sound.

Brain to Brain Communication Using EEG Waves and the Internet

Brain to Brain Communication Using EEG Waves and the Internet | Budoucnost | Scoop.it
Brain-to-brain communication was achieved recently using brain-computer interfaces, computer-brain interfaces, electroencephalographic (EEG) recordings and the internet. The developers of this brain-to-brain communication system demonstrated the transmission of information between conscious human brains without use of motor or peripheral sensory systems. This means that the information was sent from one mind to another mind without talking […]

Scientists Induce Lucid Dreaming With Electrical Stimulation | IFLScience | Budoucnost | Scoop.it
Dreams in which the sleeper knows they are dreaming and has some measure of control as to how the events pan out have been stimulated electrically, according to a new paper.    Lucid dreaming is the somewhat misleading name given to dreams where the dreamer is aware that they are in fact dreaming. They are not necessarily any clearer than other dreams, but the dreamer can often consciously control the course of the dream, making for a more intelligible experience.

“Algorithm” is a word that one hears used much more frequently than in the past.

Bypass commands from brain to legs through computer

Bypass commands from brain to legs through computer | Budoucnost | Scoop.it
Gait disturbance in individuals with spinal cord injury is attributed to the interruption of neural pathways from brain to the spinal locomotor center, whereas neural circuits locate below and above the lesion maintain most of their functions. An artificial connection that bridges the lost pathway and connects brain to spinal circuits has potential to ameliorate the functional loss. A research team has successfully made an artificial connection from the brain to the locomotion center in the spinal cord by bypassing with a computer and exercised control over walking.
