Virtual Reality System Lets You Explore Your Brain in Real-Time

RATE THIS! +31
Posted in Science on 15th Mar, 2014 01:55 AM by AlexMuller

What if it were possible to explore your brain in virtual reality, watching your thoughts flashing before your eyes? A team of neuroscientists and software developers have created a way to do precisely that. A system combines brain scanning,recording and virtual reality to allow a user to see a person's brain in real-time.

 

This "glass brain" was demonstrated here at the South by Southwest (SXSW) Interactive festival today (March 10). The system was developed bycomputational neuroscientists Tim Mullen and Christian Kothe of the University of California, San Diego, in collaboration with the lab of Adam Gazzaley, a neuroscientist at the University of California, San Francisco, using a virtual reality headset made by the gaming company Oculus Rift.

 
"We've never been able to step inside the structures [of the brain] and see it in this way," Gazzaley said. "It's biofeedback on the next level."
 
Independently, Gazzaley has been collaborating with Philip Rosedale, creator of the game Second Life, on using virtual reality to improve neuroscience, and vice versa.

This is very interesting. I think that many applications are possible and could help people better understand their own mind and importantly when there are problems or disorders

Yes, they consider such application in this article " Being able to literally watch your own brain activity is not only fun, it has therapeutic potential. For example, people with traumatic brain injury or other neurological problems could visualize how their condition is affecting their brain activity, and learn to correct it." Good news! Reply

This VR is linked to recordings from electroencephalogram (EEG) electrodes that measure differences in electric potential in order to record brain activity. EEG is used in many attempts to make "mind interface" with various devices

Yes, several companies are developing brainwave interfaces based on EEG signals. One of the key questions is whether this technology can be made to work 100 percent of the time for certain, useful tasks. Reply

Mind controlled devices are being considered more and more. One of the applications, to help paralysed patients is particularly worth while

The prospect that it could work in the future also gives some hope to people that lost the ability to physically control their environment, like Steven Hawking. Mind control might offer a non-invasive way to regain some sense of control, freedom, and easier communication with the world. Reply

Potentials are great! Such brain-machine interface architectures could enable patients to generate complex movements using robotic arms or paralyzed limbs- this is the outcome that we would like to achieve! Reply
