Brain Gate System

  1. 1. BRAINGATE SYSTEM Presented By: Jignesh Khunt Mca~3 Roll No: 25
  2. 2. INTRODUCTION • It is a mind-to-movement system that allows a quadriplegic man to control a computer using his Thoughts. • The system is to help those who have lost control of their limbs, or other bodily functions, such as patients with spinal cord injury to operate various gadgets such as TV, computer ,lights, fan etc. • It monitors brain activity in the patient and converts the intention of the user into computer commands • This can be used to control a robot arm or a cursor on a screen
  3. 3. DEVELOPMENT • Company and Scientist: • Brain Gate is a brain implant system developed by the bio-tech company Cyber kinetics in 2003 in conjunction with the Department of Neuroscience at Brown University.
  4. 4. Working Principle • The principle of brain gate neural interface system is that which intact with brain function, neural signals generated are interpreted by the systems and a cursor is shown to the user on a computer screen that provides an alternate “Brain Gate pathway". The user can use that cursor to control the computer, just as a mouse is used.
  5. 5. BCI Technology • “BCIs” usually connects the brain (or nervous system) with a computer system. • A Brain Computer Interface, called as direct neural interface or brain machine interface is a direct communication pathway between human or animal brain and an external device. • Based on the communicative Pathway BCI is classified as follows  One Way BCI  Two Way BCI
  6. 6. BCI Technology (Cont.) • One Way BCI: Computers either accept commands from the brain or send signals to it (for example, to restore vision) but not both. • Two Way BCI: Brains and external devices can exchange information in both directions.
  7. 7. • The Neuro chip: A 4-millimeter square silicon chip studded with 100 hair-thin microelectrodes is embedded in the primary motor cortex the region of the brain responsible for controlling movement • The connector: When the user thinks “move cursor up and down”, the cortical neurons fire in a distinctive pattern: the signal is transmitted through the pedestal plug attached to the skull The components in this system
  8. 8. • The converter: The signal travels to an amplifier mounted on the user’s wheelchair, where it’s converted to optical data and bounced by fiber-optic cable to a computer. • The computer: The computer translates brain activity and creates the communication output using custom decoding software.
  9. 9. Working • The Brain Gate neural interface device consist of an Inter neural signal sensor and External Processors. • The sensor consists of a tiny chip containing 100 microscopic electrodes that detect brain cell electrical activity. • The chip is implanted on the surface of brain in the motor cortex area that controls movement. Motor Cortex
  10. 10. Working (Cont.) • External Processors convert neural signals into an output signal under the users own control. • The computers translate brain activity and create the communication output using custom decoding software.
  11. 11. HOW INFORMATION IS TRANSMITTED? • When a work is done through any part of body then a potential difference is created in the brain. • This potential difference is captured by the electrodes and is transmitted via fiber optic to the Digitizer(external processor).
  12. 12. • The digitizer converts the signal into some 0’s and 1’s and that is feed into the computer. • Now when external devices are connected to the computer ,then they work according to the thought produced in the motor cortex.
  13. 13. Brain Gate Research in Human A boon to the paralyzed • Mathew-Nagel the first person to use the brain-computer interface to restore functionality lost due to paralysis…
  14. 14. ADVANTAGES • Controlling remote devices • Making and receiving telephone calls • Accessing the internet. • Turn on or off the lights • Control robotic arm • Watch and control television • Use the pc • Locking or unlocking doors • Motorized wheelchair
  15. 15. DISADVANTAGES • Expensive • Risky Surgery • Not Wireless yet • Difficulty in adaptation and learning. • Limitation in information transform rate. The latest technology is 20 bits/min.
