A Brain-Computer Interface That Works Wirelessly

Full Story - MIT Technology Review - Antonio Regalado on January 14, 2015 Researchers at Brown University and Blackrock Microsystems early in 2015, commercialized a wireless device that can be attached to a person’s skull and transmit via radio thought commands collected from a brain implant.  The device was developed by a consortium, called BrainGate, which is based at Brown and was among the first to place implants in the brains of paralyzed people and show that electrical signals emitted b...

Researchers link two human brains together for question-and-answer experiment

Called PLOS ONE, the experiment is thought to be the first to show that two brains can be directly linked to allow one person to correctly guess what’s on the other's mind. According to assistant professor of psychology and researcher at UW’s Institute for Learning & Brain Sciences, Andrea Stocco, it’s the most complex brain-to-brain experiment that’s been done to date in humans. So how exactly does this work? The first participant, or respondent, wears a cap connected to an electroencephalo...

NIST Team Breaks Distance Record for Quantum Teleportation

For Immediate Release: September 22, 2015 Contact: Laura Ost - 301-497-4880 BOULDER, Colo.—Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have “teleported” or transferred quantum information carried in light particles over 100 kilometers (km) of optical fiber, four times farther than the previous record. The experiment confirmed that quantum communication is feasible over long distances in fiber. Other research groups have teleported quantum information over ...
