    Brain-wave sensing machines have been used to ‘telepathically’ control everything from real-life helicopters to characters in a computer game. Now the technology has gone a step further by allowing someone in India to send an email to his colleague in France using nothing but the power of his mind. The researchers used electroencephalography (EEG) headsets to record electrical activity from neurons firing in the brain, and convert the words ‘hola’ and ‘ciao’ into binary. In EEG, electrical currents in the brain are linked with different thoughts that are then fed into a computer interface. This computer analyses the signal and...

    ...boy recovers completely Although a team of four physicians insisted that his son was “brain-dead” following the wreck, Thorpe’s father enlisted the help of a general practitioner and a neurologist, who demonstrated that his son still had brain wave activity. The doctors agreed to bring him out of the coma, and five weeks later Thorpe left the hospital, having almost completely recovered.
  • Japanese Wheelchair Steered Using Brain Waves

    TOKYO — Toyota Motor Corp. says it has developed a way of steering a wheelchair by just detecting brain waves, without the person having to move a muscle or shout a command. Toyota's system, developed in a collaboration with researchers in Japan, is among the fastest in the world in analyzing brain waves, it said in a release Monday. Past systems required several seconds to read brain waves, but the new technology requires only 125 milliseconds — or 125 thousandths of a second.

    Carol Weihrer talks to a group at the Trinity Methodist Church, in April in Virginia. Weihrer is speaking out about anesthesia awareness after her experience of feeling her surgery under general anethesia during an eye operation. Linda Spillers / AP file MCLEAN, Va. - The pain in Carol Weihrer’s eye was so severe she decided to have it surgically removed, believing it was the only way to get on with life.Instead, the surgery was the beginning of an unending nightmare. Her anesthesia failed, leaving her awake but paralyzed for a five-hour surgery in which doctors cut and gouged to...
  • 'Brainwave' cap controls computer

    A team of US researchers has shown that controlling devices with the brain is a step closer. Four people, two of them partly paralysed wheelchair users, successfully moved a computer cursor while wearing a cap with 64 electrodes. Previous research has shown that monkeys can control a computer with electrodes implanted into their brain. The New York team reported their findings in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. "The results show that people can learn to use scalp-recorded electroencephalogram rhythms to control rapid and accurate movement of a cursor in two directions," said Jonathan Wolpaw and Dennis McFarlane....
  • Stop Alien Abductions! (with your thought-screen helmet)

    STOP ALIEN ABDUCTIONS THIS WEBSITE TELLS YOU HOW TO MAKE A THOUGHT SCREEN HELMET, THE MATERIALS AND TOOLS YOU NEED TO MAKE ONE, AND WHERE YOU CAN OBTAIN THE MATERIALS The thought screen helmet blocks telepathic communication between aliens and humans. Aliens cannot immobilize people wearing thought screens nor can they control their minds or communicate with them. Results of the thought screen helmet exceeded expectations. Since January 2000 aliens have not taken any abductees while they were wearing thought screen helmets using Velostat shielding. See Case Histories and Testimonials. The thought screen helmet was invented by Michael Menkin in...
  • Baby brainwaves measured in womb - BBC

    A test which can measure the electrical signals in the foetal brain could one day help doctors protect babies from damage sustained in the womb. It is one of the first times that the activity of the brain has been measured, and showed that foetuses could even respond to a bright light shining through their mothers' abdomen. The research, carried out by scientists at the University of Arkansas, in the US, used a technique called magnetoencephalography (MEG). Nerve activity in the brain involves tiny electrical impulses, and this technique relies on the principle that even the smallest of these creates...
  • Scientists Create Lullabies From Brain Waves

    Some time ago I had a record album that seemed magical. It put me to sleep within minutes. Now, it turns out that it may not have been magic at all, but science. Researchers at the University of Toronto's sleep clinic have found that the human brain creates its own internal music, and that same music can be used to fight a common problem that affects millions of people across the continent: anxiety insomnia. By playing their own "brain music" back to them, researchers were able to get persons with sleeping disorders to fall asleep more quickly, and to...
