Brain gatepowerpoint(k)

  1. 1. BrainGate Hardware Summer Bird Kacie Johnson Gitau Muchane Jonathan Wright Washington Farver
  2. 2. Definition <ul><li>BrainGate Neural Interface Device- a ‘brain-computer’ interface that uses internal neural signal sensor and external processors to convert neural signals into an output signal under the users own control. </li></ul>
  3. 3. What It Is <ul><li>The sensor consists of a tiny chip (smaller than a baby aspirin) with one hundred electrode sensors each thinner than a hair that detect brain cell electrical activity. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Basic Process <ul><li>The electrode translates brain activity and sends the information to the computer in a format it can understand. </li></ul>
  5. 5. How it Works <ul><li>BrainGate uses a sensor that is implanted onto the motor cortex of the brain. The device analyzes brain signals then interprets and translated them into cursor movements. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Current Applications <ul><li>Navigate Internet </li></ul><ul><li>Play Computer Games </li></ul><ul><li>Turn Lights On and Off </li></ul><ul><li>Control Television </li></ul>
  7. 7. Future Applications <ul><li>Regulating Breathing </li></ul><ul><li>Controlling Body Functions </li></ul>
  8. 8. Benefits <ul><li>can provide paralyzed </li></ul><ul><li>or motor-impaired </li></ul><ul><li>patients a mode of </li></ul><ul><li>communication through </li></ul><ul><li>the translation of thought </li></ul><ul><li>into direct computer control. </li></ul>Nagle, a 25-year-old quadriplegic, is the first human fitted with the BrainGate Neural Interface.
  9. 9. <ul><li>“ Here we have a research participant who is capable of controlling his environment by thought alone– something we have only found in science fiction so far.” </li></ul><ul><li>– Surgeon Gerhard Friehs of Brown Medical School </li></ul>From Forbidden Planet 1956
