The machines that control the brain’s thinking: the process of implanting the device is too dangerous Sina Technology News Beijing on November 15th news, according to foreign media reports, since neural scientists and engineers began to study how the human brain and machine connected, people put forward using the technology of a wide variety of ways. For example, just think we love most TV programs can change, just use your head to drive and so on. In theory, we can use the mind to control the bionic equipment worn on the body, like the movie "Iron Man", or use the thinking of remote control of home appliances. But even if the use of the best technology, our thinking and the machine is still a certain risk. Have I not been able to buy machines that can be controlled by thought? There are some toys on the market that can be manipulated by thinking, but they can’t make you as smart as iron man, and can’t make you as big as him. We can see a small variety of devices, such as, can make the manipulation of odd shape video game hat, or is rotated by a brain wave fan etc.. But all of these commodities have the same flaw: they are too cumbersome. How does the brain graft develop? Medicine is developing more advanced treatments for patients with paralysis or amputations. Last year, scientists in a paralyzed woman of the left hemisphere of the brain is implanted in a micro sensor, so she can for a similar device, the Bluetooth mouse control to "touch" on a tablet computer touch screen. Surgeons at the Johns Hopkins University implanted 128 electrode sensors in a young man’s brain to control the hands and arms, allowing him to move a finger on the bionic arm. From Australia Monash University neurosurgeon Geoffrey Rosenfeld (Jeffrey Rosenfeld) is developing a "bionic eye", they hope to signal can make eye receiving the imitation of vitreous body is directly transmitted to the visual cortex in the brain in the graft. The team believes that this technology can benefit 85% of the blind. Because information can be transmitted directly to the brain, people who fail to improve their vision through the retina can also use this technology. They plan to carry out human trials in 2017. The technology that connects the brain to the prosthesis is improving, but they are still flawed. In order to read the brain’s electrical signals clearly, the surgeon must open, or drill the skull, in order to move the plant directly into the brain. There is a risk of this procedure, and after a while, the scar tissue will gradually wrap the graft, blocking the transmission of signals. Is there a more moderate approach? There are some methods, but they have only been tested on sheep. Nicholas Opie (Nicholas) and the Melbourne University, Melbourne Royal Hospital and the Institute of neuroscience and mental health of the colleagues of the jointly developed a device called "stentrode". Its volume is very small, can be put into the body’s blood vessels. The doctor will be able to.相关的主题文章:
