AlterEgo, the headset that listen to your internal verbalization

Thanks to AlterEgo wearable gadget, neuromuscular signals from a user will be fed into a neural network (AI) that is trained by researchers “to identify [a fundamental set of] subvocalized words from neuromuscular signals, but it can

Trans-cranial stimulation can really improve our memory, DARPA funded research on epilepsy has found.

A little electrical brain stimulation (trans-craneal) can boost our memory. The trans-craneal stimulation is a brain-stimulation technique in which electrical current is applied via electrodes implanted on or directly in the brain parenchyma. It can be a bit invasive.

It was spotted already in Jan 14th , 2017, by the Russians. RT published an article that was leaving no doubt: “Facebook’s job ads suggest ‘mind reading’ social networks could soon be a reality. Three months later during

First brain-controlled drone race took place in Gainesville (FL, USA)

The World’s First Brain-Drone Race was a ground-breaking spectacle within the field of BCI research. On April the 15th, 2017, at the Florida Gymnasium, the competition of one’s cognitive ability and mental endurance, required competitors to out-focus an opponent

New achievement reached in Neuro-Prosthetics: paralyzed man move his arm to feed himself

A paralyzed man in Cleveland can feed himself for the first time in eight years, aided by a computer-brain interface that reads his thoughts and sends signals to move muscles in his arm. [1] Earlier this year,

DARPA funds brain stimulation research for skills learning acceleration

It is called Targeted Neuroplasticity Training (TNT), DARPA’s research program that aims boosting synaptic plasticity to accelerate learning. It takes years to learn some of the most important national security skills, such as speaking foreign languages, analyzing surveillance images, and marksmanship.

Facebook hiring neuroscientists to build mind-reading network, a social one with DARPA

As spotted by RT news, “recruitment ads at the facility for a number of neuroscience based positions have sparked speculation that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s dream of telepathic communication through technology could be on its way”.[1] The
