"Brain-machine interfaces promise to aid paralyzed patients by re-routing movement-related signals around damaged parts of the nervous system. A new study in Nature demonstrates a human with spinal injury manipulating a screen cursor and robotic devices by thought alone. Implanted electrodes in his motor cortex recorded neural activity, and translated it into movement commands. A second study, in monkeys, shows that brain-machine interfaces can operate at high speed, greatly increasing their clinical potential. This Nature Web Focus includes exclusive interviews and video footage of experiments, alongside papers that paved the way for these recent advances."
The Open-ViBE research project - presented at the SAN Turkey Symposium chaired by Dr. Marco Congedo - was awarded a 3-year grant by the French National Agency of Research.
Dr. Ute Strehl and Dr. Hartmut Heinrich have been awarded the 2005 Kramer-Pollnow Award for their research contribution on neurofeedback and ADHD.

Scholarpedia is a free peer-reviewed encyclopedia that combines the philosophies of Wikipedia and Encyclopedia Britannica.
All three will be published in a printed form, and will be used as seeds to start Encyclopedia of Cognitive Neuroscience, Encyclopedia of Applied Mathematics, and Encyclopedia of Computer Science (later next year).
There is an ongoing election of authors for many articles, including "Neuron", "Synapse", "STDP", "Neural Networks", "Associative Memory", "Machine Vision", "Error Back-Propagation", "Bayesian Learning". To participate in the election, you need to register with the invitation key 'IEEE'.
