Brain gate is an electrode chip which can be implemented in the brain. When it is implemented in brain, the electrical signal exchanged by neurons within the brain. Those signals are sent to the brain and it executes body movement. All the signaling process is handled by special software. The signal sends to the computer and then the computer is controlled by patient. Whenever a man forgotten about his past due to certain accidental matter or he had lost his part of his body, at that time this electrode chip can be implemented on his brain and active the man as well. Objective of Brain Gate!!!!

Finally the control interface stage translates the classified signals into meaningful commands for any connected device, such as a wheelchair or a computer. BCI technology has traditionally been unattractive for serious scientific investigation.

The Man with the Bionic Brain: And Other Victories over Paralysis

The idea of successfully deciphering thoughts or intentions by means of brain activity has often been rejected in the past as very strange and remote. Hence investigation in the field of brain activity has usually been limited to the analysis of neurological disorders in the clinic or to the exploration of brain functions in the laboratory.

The BCI design was considered too complex, because of the limited resolution and reliability of information that was detectable in the brain and its high variability. Furthermore, BCI systems require real-time signal processing, and up until recently the requisite technology either did not exist or was extremely expensive [ 2 ].

However, this context has undergone radical change over the last two decades. BCI research, which was confined to only three groups 20 years ago and only six to eight groups 10 years ago, is now a flourishing field with more than active research groups all over the World studying the topic [ 3 ].

The number of articles published regarding neural interface technology has increased exponentially over the past decade [ 4 ].

Successful studies on brain signal phenomena have lent further weight to these advances. The development of more and more inexpensive computer hardware and software has allowed more sophisticated online analysis. Likewise, the chances of using BCIs as auxiliary technology that might serve severely disabled people has increased social acceptance in this field and the need to accelerate its progress. Interest in this technology is now found outside of the laboratory or the clinic.

Small specialized companies such as Emotiv [ 5 ] or Neurosky [ 6 ] have already developed some initial applications oriented towards the general public. Nevertheless, despite these advances, most BCI-based applications are still limited to the laboratory.

Broader applicability of BCIs requires greater ease of use, which in turn means reducing time spent on preparation, training and calibration [ 7 ]. BCI research is a relatively young multidisciplinary field integrating researchers from neuroscience, physiology, psychology, engineering, computer science, rehabilitation, and other technical and health-care disciplines.

As a result, in spite of some notable advances, a common language has yet to emerge, and existing BCI technologies vary, which makes their comparison difficult and, in consequence, slows down the research.

The community of BCI researchers has therefore stressed the need to establish a general framework for BCI design [ 8 ]. Mason et al. This review of the state-of-the-art of BCI systems is arranged as follows: Section 2 discusses existing neuroimaging approaches to BCIs and Section 3 describes the most commonly found control signals in BCI systems. Section 4 briefly explains certain types of BCIs.

Sections 5, 6 and 7, respectively, cover the different signal processing methods used for feature extraction, artifact reduction and feature classification.

Section 8 provides an overview of BCI applications and, finally, the conclusions are drawn in Section 9. To that effect, BCIs rely on a recording stage that measures brain activity and translates the information into tractable electrical signals.

Two types of brain activities may be monitored: i electrophysiological and ii hemodynamic. Electrophysiological activity is generated by electro-chemical transmitters exchanging information between the neurons.

The neurons generate ionic currents which flow within and across neuronal assemblies.

The large variety of current pathways can be simplified as a dipole conducting current from a source to a sink through the dendritic trunk. Should the control surface move too far, low-frequency pulses are added to nudge the action potential, and the plane, back down.

In one breakthrough application, the cells were trained to pilot a flight simulator. The point of this experiment is not to teach cells to fly, of course, but to learn something about neuronal networks.

Using a combination of microscopy and direct recordings, DeMarse can study how the neurons perform computations and change connectivity when stimulated.

Brain Computer Interfaces, a Review

DeMarse notes that the arrays, though not a whole brain, closely approximate the connectivity between neurons in the intact brain and allow researchers to study networks at higher spatial and temporal resolution than functional magnetic resonance imaging, for example. Now, in collaboration with University of Florida neurologist Paul Carney, DeMarse is investigating neurophysiological network changes leading to epilepsy in live rats.

The team combines microelectrode recordings from the hippocampi of live rats with recordings from cultured neurons, which provide histological data and give better resolution. DeMarse says he and Carney hope eventually to identify abnormal patterns of brain activity that lead to an epileptic episode, and to stimulate neurons to revert to normal patterns.

At the University of Washington in Seattle, Tom Daniel's team implants small computer chips in the hawk moth, Manduca sexta , to study how the insect's nervous system controls flight. Like DeMarse's sensors, Daniel's chips can both record and stimulate neural responses. Ultimately of course, scientists and companies looking to aid disabled patients must find ways to translate these clever proofs-of-concept into real-world, practical applications.

In their current configuration, implantable technologies such as BrainGate will likely never achieve widespread use. For one thing, they are unwieldy. BrainGate, says Donoghue, is "a fairly substantial cart with computers and signal processors. Neural implants also require major surgery. Cyberkinetics' chip is implanted during a three-hour procedure. A competing but similar product from Atlanta-based Neural Signals, called the Brain Communicator, requires 10 hours, according to the company's Web site.

Though consensus appears to favor implantable devices, economics i. Says Donchin: "All the science in the world is not going to change the fact that if somebody has developed a wonderful HIV drug, it is going to be of no use to the sick poor in Nigeria. And the same is going to be true for paralyzed ALS patients who do not have the thousands of dollars to pay for an invasive procedure for implanting a prosthesis.

What recovery her body was able to make had happened early on after the stroke. She could control her eyes, she could swallow and breathe on her own, and she could move her head slightly, which allowed her to operate the wheelchair with a button on the headrest behind her.

She communicated through a system--developed by engineers at UMass Dartmouth's Center for Rehabilitation Engineering to track her eyes and convert her gaze into mouse clicks.

In this way, she could slowly pick out letters on a keyboard, allowing her to use her gaze to email and do some basic Web browsing. In , a friend of Cathy's, a nurse, came across a call for participants for BrainGate, run out of Brown University. The researchers were seeking patients with quadriplegia for a pioneering experiment in which an electrode-studded implant would be embedded directly into the brain, in the hopes of identifying and decoding the neurological activity that governed physical movement.

The short-term goal was to use signals from the brain to control computers and then assistive devices.

The long-term goal was to bypass damaged sections of the spinal cord and restore movement. The study's codirector, a conscientious young neuroscientist named Leigh Hochberg, was blunt with Cathy: Whatever the failures or successes of the study, she could not hope that the results would assist her in her lifetime. As Cathy concentrated on moving her hand, her efforts unspooled on screens in front of the researchers, who tried to use the information from her brain as a sort of virtual mind-controlled mouse.

When the researchers turned control of the cursor over to Cathy's neurons, the cursor immediately began to move haltingly across the screen. Cathy couldn't believe her eyes. The next trials would require a great leap. The researchers wanted to give Cathy the ability to operate in physical space.
