A Helmet That Turns Your Brainwaves Into Electronic Music

A Helmet That Turns Your Brainwaves Into Electronic Music | Chasing the Future | Scoop.it
By outfitting a motorcycle helmet with an EEG device, artist Aiste Noreikaite has created a way to turn firing neurons into heady beats.

 

From the outside, the Experience Helmet, made by Lithuanian sound artist Aiste Noreikaite, looks like any old white motorcycle helmet. But put it on, and you become suddenly immersed in your own private sound installation. High and low tones combine to form an enveloping electronic beat—all of which is composed by your own brainwaves

Researchers find molecular switch to make old brains young again | Chasing the Future | Scoop.it

Researchers at Yale University have found a way to effectively turn back the clock and make an old brain young again.

 

As we enter adulthood, our brains become more stable and rigid when compared to that of an adolescent. This is partially due to the triggering of a single gene that slows the rapid change in synaptic connections between neurons, thereby suppressing the high levels of plasticity of an adolescent brain.
