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.

…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 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…
