Army devel­ops big data approach to neu­ro­science (press release):

A big data approach to neu­ro­science promis­es to sig­nif­i­cant­ly improve our under­stand­ing of the rela­tion­ship between brain activ­i­ty and per­for­mance.

To date, there have been rel­a­tive­ly few attempts to use a big-data approach with­in the emerg­ing field of neu­rotech­nol­o­gy. Read the rest of this entry »

Akili Inter­ac­tive: Dig­i­tal pedi­atric ADHD ther­a­peu­tic per­forms well with or with­out accom­pa­ny­ing stim­u­lant ther­a­py (Mobi­Health News):

Dig­i­tal ther­a­peu­tic com­pa­ny Akili Inter­ac­tive has announced the first results of an open-label, mul­ti­site pedi­atric ADHD tri­al pro­vid­ing some patients with the company’s video game-like treat­ment along­side a stim­u­lant med­ica­tion.

Accord­ing to the com­pa­ny, both those who received the AKL-T01 ther­a­py with (n = 130) or with­out (n = 76) accom­pa­ny­ing stim­u­lant med­ica­tion saw sig­nif­i­cant improve­ments one month after Read the rest of this entry »

Brain tech is here: These gad­gets from CES 2020 rely on your brain­waves to work (CNET):

The futur­is­tic promise of tech devices that use brain waves to improve sleep, anx­i­ety and con­cen­tra­tion — and even con­trol pros­thet­ic hands — may final­ly be com­ing to fruition, with a slew of new prod­ucts on dis­play at CES 2020 in Las Vegas. Brain tech holds great poten­tial for help­ing us under­stand and con­trol our minds from the com­fort of our homes, but sci­ence still has a long way to go.

Here are some of the coolest brain tech prod­ucts we saw at CES 2020. Some of these prod­ucts are already on the mar­ket, while some are only pro­to­types.” Con­tin­ue read­ing over at CNET

10 Non-invasive Neurotechnologies About to Transform Brain Enhancement and Brain Health

BrainComputerInterface.

30,000+ sci­en­tists and pro­fes­sion­als gath­ered for the annu­al Soci­ety for Neu­ro­science con­fer­ence in Chica­go last month, prov­ing the grow­ing inter­est and activ­i­ties to bet­ter under­stand the inner work­ings of the human brain, and to dis­cov­er ways and tech­nolo­gies to enhance its health and per­for­mance.

Now, which of all those ongo­ing efforts are clos­er to touch­ing our lives, to empow­er con­sumers, patients and health pro­fes­sion­als? Read the rest of this entry »
