The debut of a new type of magnetic resonance sensor for brainwaves and electrical activity - which changes the game totally for both fMRI and MEG. For the first time ever, portable, low-cost versions of both are actually a possibility.
When it comes to using chemical or radioactive markers to make parts of the brain easier to see, and more finely detailed with a magnetic resonance scan, your options have been rather limited.
Doubts have been raised, over the accuracy of many fMRI (functional magnetic resonance imaging) studies, used to decode the information in the brain.
Industry news, originally posted 23-02-2005. A study by UCLA neuroscientists featuring functional magnetic resonance imaging has for the first time found evidence that mirror neurons help people understand the intentions of others.
fMRI or functional magnetic resonance imaging, is one of the newest brain imaging technologies for the first decade of the 21st century. It is a basic form of Brain-Computer Interaction.
Diffusion spectrum imaging is a new technique at time of writing, which allows magnetic resonance brain imaging, at a much higher level of fidelity than fMRI permits.
The first known, successful implant of an extra sensory perception to detect magnetic fields the person with the new sense was near, occurred in 2005, when a small piece of neodymium, which is a rare earth metal, that forms a permanent magnet, was coated in a thin layer of silicon, and implanted into an emergency medical technician's finger.
One of the greatest problems with tomography based medical scanners, is what happens when the patient moves (breathes, or pumps blood). The distortion that occurs in each slice has long been correctable, but takes a long time to correct. With near-instant correction now possible, real-time medical scanning is starting to look like a true possibility.
A second part to Wired's article "Rewiring the Brain: Inside the New Science of Neuroengineering", continuing on along the same lines; looking at the work of Dr. Ed Boyden, and his prototype Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation machine.
