New probe measures electrical activity of hundreds of individual neurons in living brains

New probe measures electrical activity of hundreds of individual neurons in living brains To move beyond historically difficult and damaging methods of taking these readings, researchers from Caltech have demonstrated a minimally invasive probe for doing in vivo electrophysiology: real-time electrical recordings of living nerves in the brain.The probe can measure electrical activity in three dimensions, which could be a huge breakthrough for our understanding of cognition and neural activity.

'Locked-in' ALS patients get a voice thanks to this new mind-reading machine

'Locked-in' ALS patients get a voice thanks to this new mind-reading machine Now researchers from Europe have used a brain-computer interface to communicate with four completely locked-in ALS patients.Locked-in syndrome means that patients can’t communicate, even though they’re still “in there.
