Science Bulletins: Tapping In—The Promise of Brain-Computer Interface

For decades, neuroscientists have sought to use electronics to communicate with the brain. Computing and surgical technique have now become sophisticated enough to implant devices directly into neural tissue. In this feature, researchers at Albany Medical Center and the Wadsworth Center at the New York State Department of Health reveal a world where mind and machine merge. Their cutting-edge devices translate brain signals into action, helping people with ALS and other disabilities regain the ability to communicate.Science Bulletins is a production of the National Center for Science Literacy, Education, and Technology (NCSLET), part of the Department of Education at the American Museum of Natural History.Related LinksAMNH: Brain-The Inside Storyhttp://www.amnh.org/exhibitions/brain/AMNH News: Brain-related postshttp://www.amnh.org/news/tag/brain/Wadsworth Center, New York State Department of Health: Brain-Computer Interface Systemhttp://www.wadsworth.org/bci/index.htmlNIH: Locked-In Syndromehttp://www.ninds.nih.gov/disorders/lockedinsyndrome/lockedinsyndrome.htm
