Translating thought into action
A human trial of a tiny device developed by University Melbourne researchers is allowing patients with paralysis to operate computers just with their thoughts
Stimulating the brain – without major surgery
University of Melbourne researchers have shown the Stentrode, a tiny device inserted next to the motor cortex, can stimulate, as well as record, brain activity.
A tiny device implanted next to the brain’s motor cortex could one day help paralysed people move their limbs again.
In Pursuit podcast: Thought-controlled futures
We talk to the developers of the stentrode, a new engineering marvel that allows brain activity to be recorded and used to control an exoskeleton.
Next-Gen technologies: All in our minds
As we move from the information era to the robotic era, thought-controlled technologies have far-reaching potential for how we live our lives.
Moving with the power of thought
A device the size of a matchstick, implanted next to the brain’s motor cortex, could one day help paralysed people move their limbs.
