Inspired by the brain’s structure, IBM and Cornell University researchers have developed an efficient, scalable, and flexible non–von Neumann architecture in a 5.4-billion-transistor chip with 4096 neurosynaptic cores interconnected via an intrachip network that integrates 1 million programmable spiking neurons and 256 million configurable synapses.

When visual evoked potentials (VEPs) are deployed in brain–computer interfaces (BCIs), the emphasis is put on stimulus design. In the case of transient VEPs (TVEPs) brain responses are never treated individually, i.e. on a single-trial (ST) basis, due to their poor signal quality. Therefore their main characteristic, which is the emergence during early latencies, remains unexplored. Read the rest of this entry…

A prosthetic hand wired to nerves in an amputee’s upper arm allowed the patient to feel sensory rich information, grasp objects intuitively and identify what he was touching while blindfolded.

The sense of touch was achieved Read the rest of this entry…
