By now, we’re all familiar with the colourful spots and blobs associated with brain imaging. The assumption is often that areas which ‘light up’ are increasingly activated – and are, as such, implicitly more ‘important’ – in the task under study. But researchers using brain imaging techniques know this to be untrue...more

g.tec's wireless EEG system with active electrodes.
It sets a new standard of usability.
Also available with active dry electrodes.
The tiny and lightweight device is attached to the EEG cap to avoid cable movements and to allow completely free movements. In combination with g.tec’s active electrode technology, you will get top quality EEG recordings from 32/16/8 channels within few minutes. Just put on the cap, add a bit of gel in each electrode, and start your recording. A…

Dear All :
Do you know any book or article to have figures or images (Ct or MRI ) for facial motor presentation on the cortex and sub-cortical area ( as functional and anatomical pathway )?

Available as a 2-, 3- and 8-channel vibrotactile P300 based BCI control
However, P300 BCIs based on visual stimuli do not work with patients who lost their vision. Auditory paradigms can also be implemented using a frequent stimulus with a certain frequency and an…Continue

Brain’s electrical activity may provide the only direct path to a patient’s mental state assessment.
Over 40% of patients diagnosed as vegetative
are reclassified as (at least) minimally conscious
when assessed by expert teams.
The mindBEAGLE®system consists of a portable medical grade biosignal amplifier, an EEG cap with active electrodes,
a standard laptop computer with the mindBEAGLE® software, in-ear phones for auditory stimulation and
Samsung is researching how to bring mind control to its mobile devices
with the hope of developing ways for people with mobility impairments to connect
to the world. Therefore they use g.tec's active dry electrode system g.SAHARA.

Hyperscanning BCI - A P300 based communication tool for several
users to cooperatively and simultaneously spell.
Many futurists believe that people in the distant future will use
advanced technology to work together more directly, something
like a “hive mind”. People could use technology to help them
not just work together but also think together, accomplishing
goals more quickly and effectively. That future may not be so distant.…

When art overcomes disabilities...
g.tec integrates a landmark painting application into intendix® personal Brain-Computer Interface.
Before children start to write, they first learn to draw. Drawing is one of the oldest techniques humans have been using to communicate and visualize ideas, knowledge and emotions. There are cave paintings made 40,000 years ago, and people still use painting to express things that cannot be communicated through…Continue

We discern, from the everyday practices we engage in, essence[s] of this or that practice and use these essences to guide our practices as we see fit. That’s all there’s to math.
Consider, for example, the practice of translation with which we all are quite familiar, by virtue of actually participating in the practice of translation. Having looked at the Telugu [language] meaning of one too many English words in a English --> Telugu…Continue

I am an associate professor at Saint Peter’s University. My research interest is in cognitive modeling. The research is in semantic modeling of language in computational linguistics and in brain-style modeling.
As part of my dissertation at Stevens Institute of Technology I developed a mathematical technique that I use in my linguistic research. The technique is able to determine partial semantics of sentences.
I believe that a similar type of technique could be used…

A new study shows that reward and punishment can influence the mirror neuron related activity in the brain. Therefore the degree to which we simulate others' actions could be driven by the reward values we associate with the actions, which is likely to be different depending upon the context. This provides neural evidence that our ability to learn social skills during development through observing others' behaviour is also affected by how much we value others' behaviour.…Continue
