Theoretical neuroscientist Vivienne Ming has focused her professional career on exploring ways to use tech to maximize human potential — but in a fascinating new Quartz story, she details the time...
When a person becomes blind — as opposed to being born that way — their brain’s visual cortex is typically undamaged. However, it’s also fairly useless since it’s not receiving any information from...
Bionic Face A neural implant may soon be able to help people with facial paralysis smile and control their faces again. The small prosthesis, referred to as a “bionic face” by the scientists who...
