cognition-related neural pattern

  • Scientists gets that a mouse activates a touchscreen through a cognitive-related neural pattern

    Brain-machine interfaces represent a solution for people with physical difficulties to communicate with their physical and social environment. In this work, ‘A cognition-related neural oscillation pattern, generated in the prelimbic cortex, can control operant learning in rats’, researchers have identified a functional brain pattern in prefrontal cortex, associated to cognitive processes, and have used it to activate a screen in a touch device (an iPad’s touchscreen).
