Computer scientists combine computer vision and brain computer interface for faster mine detection

May 4, 2015

…Diego, have combined sophisticated computer vision algorithms and a brain-computer interface to find mines in sonar images of the ocean floor. The study shows that the new method speeds detection up considerably, when compared to existing methods—mainly visual inspection by a mine detection expert.

A New Brain-computer Interface with a Flexible Backing

March 16, 2022

Engineering researchers have invented an advanced brain-computer interface with a flexible and moldable backing and penetrating microneedles. Adding a flexible backing to this kind of brain-computer interface allows the device to more evenly conform to the brain’s complex curved surface.

New Study Shows Noninvasive Brain Imaging Can Distinguish Among Hand Gestures

May 19, 2023

Researchers have found a way to distinguish among hand gestures that people are making by examining only data from noninvasive brain imaging, without information from the hands. The results are an early step in a safe brain-computer interface that may one day help patients with movement challenges.

International Research Team Confirms Potential Glioblastoma Inhibitors

January 21, 2020

A research team from SDSC and institutes in Sweden and France have published a study on the OLIG2 inhibitor as a way to improve prognoses for brain cancer patients.

Eye-Controlled Soft Lens Paves Way to Soft Human-Machine Interfaces

August 2, 2019

UC San Diego engineers have developed a soft robotic lens whose movements are controlled by the eyes—blink twice and the lens zooms in and out; look left, right, up or down and the lens will follow. The lens is the first example of an interface between humans and soft machines.

Scientists Construct Google-Earth-like Atlas of the Human Brain

March 8, 2018

Two neuroscientists have produced a new kind of atlas of the human brain that, they hope, can be eventually refined and improved to provide more detailed information about the organization and function of the human brain.

Bioengineer Studying How the Brain Controls Movement

April 2, 2014

A University of California, San Diego research team led by bioengineer Gert Cauwenberghs is working to understand how the brain circuitry controls how we move. The goal is to develop new technologies to help patients with Parkinson’s disease and other debilitating medical conditions navigate the world on their own. Their…

Researchers ID ‘Conjunction Junction’ for Brain’s Navigation Function

July 9, 2015

Ever wake at night needing a drink of water and then find your way to the kitchen in the dark without stubbing your toe? Researchers at the University of California, San Diego say they have identified a region of the brain that enables you to do that – and generally…

Decoding Birds’ Brain Signals Into Syllables of Song

September 23, 2021

Researchers can predict what syllables a bird will sing—and when it will sing them—by reading electrical signals in its brain, reports a new study from the University of California San Diego. The work is an early step toward building vocal prostheses for humans who have lost the ability to speak.

Two UC San Diego Researchers Receive NIH High-Risk, High-Reward Awards

October 6, 2020

Two University of California San Diego researchers have received prestigious awards through the 2020 National Institutes of Health (NIH) High-Risk, High-Reward Research Program.
