This section contains interesting articles around neurotechnology, neurorehabilitation and the latest technological development around neurotechnology. From cutting edge imaging techniques to helping control products with a simple thought or a simple gesture, neurotechnology has undoubtedly played a significant role in a lot of people’s lives with neurological disabilities.
With the COVID-19 pandemic, people have had restricted access to hospitals or their doctors which creates a huge problems for people who would depend on going to clinics. This arises the need and significance to meet the needs of people depending on technology for their daily survival. Some interesting ideas and research together constitutes this section which will be growing with time.
Neurotechnology: The Inception
There has been quite of lot of research done around neurotechnology with one of the major breakthrough around brain imaging techniques. These techniques widely range from EEG, MRI, PET to MEG techniques. Read the entire article here
Neurorehabilitation – Technology can help us in a good way
Neurorehabilitation deals with rehabilitation due to a nervous damage or any injury impacting the nerves system. These injuries include stroke, CLS and other diseases .. Read the entire article here.
Neuroprosthetics- A technological milestone
This has undoubtedly one of the best applications of neurotechnology. BCIs which began as a hypothetical research has once again proved beneficial with clinical applications. Recent advances in BCI technology has led to the development of neuroprosthetics…Read the entire article here
Neurosecurity- Safety of neural devices
Electro activity in the human brain has been studied for over a century and various applications devised that enhance human capabilities in areas where capability may be deficient. Read the entire article here
“For grey matter, there is no black and white. If you think in black and white, then you do not use enough brain functions.”
With merely beginning as a notion to captivate research, the research of bringing technology in understanding the brain has surpassed human expectations. It is still difficult to believe how far the journey with extensive research done in various disciplines like neurotechnology, neuroinformatics, neuroplasticity and neuroethics to name a few
Having the leverage of using nanotechnological devices and the modern day imaging techniques, the clinical applications has come into light though with ethics to be kept in mind. Various fields like artificial intelligence, deep learning and machine learning have assisted research to simulate the neural network and also getting machines to not only think like humans but also introducing the training and learning traits. Though, the field of neurotechnology has been around for some time, it’s only in the last decade that the focus has gradually shifted towards this field
