Novel Brain Training Game May Reduce Kids’ ADHD Symptoms (Medspace):
“A novel cognitive training computer game that uses a child’s own brain waves to improve concentration may reduce symptoms of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), say US researchers.
Investigators used a novel feed-forward modeling (FFM) system, which…is based on a computer cognitive training game in which attention is required to move an avatar through the game. The game was calibrated using an electroencephalogram (EEG) headband with three frontal sensors to create a model of attention and inattention states. Read the rest of this entry »
Digital tattoo lets you control devices with mind power alone (New Scientist):
“WHAT’S on your mind? For £79, anyone can buy a headset that reads the electrical activity of their brain. It’s called an electroencephalogram, or EEG, and you can use it to control devices with the power of your mind. But there’s a drawback: Read the rest of this entry »
