Science magazine turns on yet another way electromagnetism can alter the way we think and remember – by switching on vivid visual hallucinations:
A 22-year-old male was receiving deep brain stimulation to isolate where his daily seizures originated. His disorder appeared after he caught West Nile virus at the age of 10 and subsequently [...]
Science Daily is rubbing their hands (and stomping their feet) over new breakthroughs in harnessing your everyday movements to power up your batteries:
…[Georgia Institute of Technology professor Zhong Lin] Wang then developed the first triboelectric nanogenerator, or “TENG.” He paired two sheets of different materials together — one donates electrons, and the other [...]
New Scientist has an amazing new therapy for patients in a vegetative state – using the same direct current-stimulation that increases creative “flow” to turn their brains back on all the way:
The team worked with 55 people who had experienced a traumatic brain injury or lack of oxygen to the brain and were in [...]
The medievalists at Medievalists.net are all excited over a new technology that “unerases” writings that were erased by scribes to make more room on precious parchment:
Using cutting-edge technology, European scientists have uncovered new fragments by Euripides and an unknown ancient commentary on Aristotle.
These writings were on parchments that were washed off and overwritten in [...]
PhysOrg is sending out the call, as the Pentagon prepares to team up with brain-tech DIYers:
[...A]t the Maker Faire in New York, a new low-cost EEG recording front end was debuted at DARPA’s booth. Known as OpenBCI, the device can process eight channels of high quality EEG data, and interface it to [...]
This device is “a regulateur des intermittences”, according to La Nature. I’m not sure what “intermittences” are exactly, but Gustave Trouvet was going to fix ‘em by plugging this in. He fixed all kinds of things with his numerous inventions.
I found the picture (by someone named Burgun?) on Wikimedia Commons.
Laboratory Equipment reveals a quantum leap in tDCS – transcranial direct current stimulation, or zapping your brain to make it do things differently. As the regular reader knows well, folks have already used tDCS to enter creative states… but now they’ve found out how to use electricity to release painkilling chemicals in the [...]
Gigaom has the scoop on Tesla’s bid to change the face of America – by introducing a network of electric-car charging stations:
Eectric car maker Tesla announced on Monday night that it has installed its “Supercharger” rapid car charging network at an initial six locations throughout California and Tesla says charging at these stations [...]
