Electric stimulation improves memory

Electric Stimulation Improves the Working Memory of Older People

The performance of our working memory deteriorates as we age. As we get older, it becomes increasingly difficult to form new memories and hold on to them. Now researchers at Boston University have shown that it is possible to improve memory in older folks. They used external electric stimulation to give 70-year-olds the memory abilities […]

SeizeIT2: Discreet and Clinically Accurate Seizure Detecting Wearable

Approximately 65 million people worldwide are affected by epilepsy. This complex disease has one commonality: seizures. Medical decision to change any prescribed drug is based on the number of seizures. Inaccurate seizure reporting causes challenges in diagnosing and treating people with epilepsy.

Dopamine detect sensors

University of Central Florida Researchers Developing Sensors to Detect Parkinson’s Disease in Seconds

Dopamine is a chemical that is believed to play a role in various diseases such as Parkinson’s, depression and some cancers. When Parkinson’ disease develops, the cells in the substantia nigra part of the brain begin to die. These cells produce dopamine and the loss of dopamine in the brain leads to issues with movement.

Brain Computer Interface with Neurofeedback Can Improve Your Performance, Says Columbia Study

When we feel agitated, fearful, or calm, our state of mind can significantly affect our ability to make decisions, judgments, and actions. For example, when walking across a beam, your odds of making across the beam without falling off is dramatically better if the beam is only six inches off the ground. But at 60 […]
