Neurotech start-up Ctrl-labs raises $28M to reinvent human-computer interactions

___

Ctrl-labs rais­es $28 mil­lion from GV and Alexa Fund for neur­al inter­faces (Ven­ture Beat):

Ctrl-labs, a New York start­up that’s devel­op­ing a device capa­ble of trans­lat­ing elec­tri­cal mus­cle impuls­es into dig­i­tal sig­nals, today announced that it has raised $28 mil­lion in a fund­ing round led by GV, Google’s ven­ture cap­i­tal arm, Read the rest of this entry »

What will neurotechnology look like just one or two decades ahead?

Cred­it: Uni­ver­si­ty of Not­ting­ham

Will it be about a new gen­er­a­tion of portable brain scan­ners that can sig­nif­i­cant­ly low­er the price of research, like the one being devel­oped by researchers at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Not­ting­ham and Uni­ver­si­ty Col­lege Lon­don in the UK?

Or will it be about sophis­ti­cat­ed neur­al inter­faces, like the ones the US mil­i­tary is work­ing on, to change the ways our minds inter­act with the world around us?

Or, per­haps, will it be about inex­pen­sive, data-rich approach­es to detect pat­terns in your smart­phone usage and detect men­tal health and brain dis­or­ders in their ear­ly stages — such as what Mind­Strong HealthNeu­raMetrix and oth­ers are already doing?

–> Con­tin­ue read­ing We need to rethink neu­ro­science. And you can help us, over at the World Eco­nom­ic Forum.
