Neurotechnology

Man smiling with a comfortable dry eeg headset
Dry-EEG systems can open the door for the application of neuroscience in real-world settings, and the market to a new generation of products and services based on neurotechnology. However, there are many open questions related to their reliability, accuracy and signal quality. This post will give the reader solid arguments for selecting a technology that fits the application requirements.

Man with spinal cord injury that can grasp objects again thank to a brain-computer interface developed under the MoreGraso Project
Brain-computer interfaces (BCI) occupy an emerging field with the potential of changing the world, with diverse applications from rehabilitation to human augmentation. In this post, we will provide some insights into what BCIs are, how they are built, and what are the most promising applications that may be available in the near future.

Future of society in which the ethics of neurotechnology and technological advances have been taken into account
Cars connected to the mind, implants in the brain to cure Alzheimer's or letters that are written just by thinking about it are some of the advances on which neurotechnology is working. Brain-machine interfaces (BCI systems) will completely change the way we live, but are we aware of the ethical issues and implications that these developments will involve?

computer hacker who is hacking the brain and heart of a person without cybersecurity
What would happen if a computer hacker could access the neural information of the president of the United States and revealed the nation’s next military objectives? Or what if the hacker discovered the president suffers from a mental illness and disclosed this information to the press? Or even worse… How much would a rival country pay for such information?

Person carrying out a project of market research and digital transformation in the fourth industrial revolution.
The 4th Industrial Revolution is technology-driven and will impact the business market unprecedentedly, adding US$14.2 billion to the global economy in the next 15 years (Accenture), and affecting industries. Within this context, if the market research sector wants to survive such a deep transformation, it must overcome significant barriers. But… what are the challenges for market research and how can this industry be accelerated?

 Participant in consumer neuroscience study uses eeg and gsr neurotechnology at the food gastronomy fair 2018
Nutritional neuroscience is an increasing field of research that companies are implementing to better understand the gastronomic profiles consumers. New functional neuroimaging and human behavior research techniques are applied to get the neural and behavioural correlates of taste, food presentation and selection among many others.

 Patient or person with tetraplegia with spinal cord injury using brain-controlled neuroprosthetics to be able to move the arms and perform the action of grabbing objects in tasks of daily life thanks to a non-invasive bci with eeg
People with high-level cervical injuries suffer total loss of the functions of the lower limbs and partial or total paralysis of upper limbs. The research team of the H2020 MoreGrasp European project has developed a brain-controlled motor neuroprosthesis. This cutting edge-neurotechnology will enable tetraplegics to carry out daily movements with their hands, such as grab a glass to drink water or brush their teeth, improving their autonomy and quality of life.

 Person using a brain computer interface called brain to vehicle in a car to improve safety on the steering wheel
Nissan has recently presented the Brain-to-Vehicle technology, which connects the driver’s brain with the vehicle to create a more comfortable and safer driving experience. The project is based on a cutting-edge brain-computer interface that has lead to great advances in brain-sensing devices, EEG signal processing and vehicle shared control. Connecting our brains to vehicles will be in the spotlight of the automotive sector for the next years. Do you want to learn more about the project?
