BrainGate is a brain implant system developed by the bio-tech company Cyberkinetics in in conjunction with the Department of Neuroscience at Brown University. The device was designed to help those who have lost control of their limbs, or other bodily functions, such as patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis ALS or spinal cord injury.
The computer chip, which is implanted into the brainmonitors brain activity in the patient and absrtact the intention of the user into computer abstrct. Cyberkinetics describes that “such applications may include novel communications interfaces for motor impaired patients, as well as the monitoring and treatment of certain diseases which manifest themselves in patterns of brain activity, such as epilepsy and depression.
Brain Gate Technology
Currently the chip uses hair-thin electrodes that sense the electro-magnetic signature of neurons firing in specific areas of the brain, for example, the area that controls arm braimgate. The activities are translated into electrically charged signals and are then sent and decoded using a program, which can move either a robotic arm or a computer cursor.
According to the Cyberkinetics’ website, three patients have been implanted with the BrainGate system. The company has confirmed that one patient Matt Braijgate has a spinal cord injury, while another has advanced ALS.
The system is designed to restore functionality for a limited, immobile group of severely motor-impaired individuals. It is expected that people using the BrainGate System will employ a personal computer as the gateway to a range of self-directed activities. These activities may extend beyond typical computer functions e. Brainhate BrainGate System is based on Cyberkinetics’ platform technology to sense, transmit, analyze and apply the language of neurons.
The System consists of a sensor that is implanted on the motor cortex of the brain and a device that analyzes brain signals.
The principle of operation behind the BrainGate System is that with intact brain function, brain signals are generated even though they are not sent to the arms, hands and legs. The signals are interpreted and translated into cursor movements, offering the user an alternate “BrainGate pathway” to control a computer with thought, just as individuals who have the ability to move their hands use a mouse.
IBM, in braingatte with scientists at Switzerland’s Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne’s EPFL Brain and Mind Institute will begin simulating the brain’s biological systems and output the data as a working 3-dimensional model that will recreate the high-speed electro-chemical interactions that take place within the brain’s interior.
These include cognitive functions such as language, learning, perception and memory in addition to brain malfunction such as psychiatric disorders like depression and autism. From there, the modeling will expand to other regions of the brain and, if successful, shed light on the relationships between genetic, molecular and cognitive functions of the brain.
