The Internet Changes Your Brain, Study Shows

The Internet has firmly burrowed its way into our psyches. We think in 140-character bursts. We Google our memory when we can't, for the life of us, remember the name of that guy from 'Ghost.' We meet new people and imagine a reconfiguration of our Facebook friends list. The Internet has fundamentally changed the way we think, and a newly released study may provide hard, scientific proof of what...

'Thought Helmets' Could Enable Voiceless Troop Communication

This won't mark the first time the US government has looked into other means for helping soldiers communicate on the battlefield, but it's one of the first instances where vocal cords aren't even necessary. The US Army has recently awarded a $4 million contract to a coalition of scientists, all of which will soon start developing a "thought helmet" to enable voiceless, secure communication between...

Researchers Devise Neural Implant That Learns Over Time

Brain-machine interfaces have done quite a bit in helping handicapped individuals interact with prosthetic limbs, computers and other humans, but a new neural implant concocted at the University of Florida could make all those past devices look archaic. Put simply, researchers have discovered a method that would enable brain-machine interfaces to "adapt to a person's behavior over time and use...

Audeo Neckband Translates Your Thoughts Into Speech

Who wants to waste energy speaking words when just thinking about speaking will do? Audeo -- a neckband that detects nerve impulses sent to the larynx -- will help you do just that. The techo-accessory has previously been demonstrated controlling a motorized wheel chair, but now the scientists behind the device have added "voiceless" speech to its repetoire of tricks. Ambient Corporation...

The Computer That Reads Your Mood

Imagine a future where your computer knows when you're feeling stressed and adjusts to you accordingly. The same system can also, say, sense when an air traffic controller is feeling burned out, and pass the next airplane landing on to someone else -- automatically. Well, with $445,000 from the National Science Foundation, researchers at Tufts University are hoping to make such a system a...
