Glossokinetic potential based tongue–machine ınterface for 1-D extraction using neural networks

This study may serve disabled people to control assistive devices in natural, unobtrusive, speedy and reliable manner. Moreover, it is expected that GKP-based TMI could be a collaboration channel for traditional electroencephalography (EEG)-based brain computer interfaces which have significant inadequacies arisen from the EEG signals.

Abstract Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a fatal neurodegenerative disease characterized by progressive degeneration and loss of motor neurons that appears to spread through the neuroaxis in a spatiotemporally restricted manner. In the familial form of ALS, the presence of any one of over 180 inherited mutations in the gene that encodes Cu/Zn superoxide dismutase (SOD1) leads to its eventual misfolding and aggregation. Once the pathological SOD1 seed is formed, it can continue growing into a larger aggregate through nucleation of other SOD1 substrate molecules. To date, there is no effective and rapid metho...

Publication date: Available online 20 October 2018Source: Biochimica et Biophysica Acta (BBA) - Molecular Basis of DiseaseAuthor(s): Samantha N. Cobos, Seth A. Bennett, Mariana P. TorrenteAbstractEvery year, neurodegenerative disorders take more than 5000 lives in the US alone. Cures have not yet been found for many of the multitude of neuropathies. The majority of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), frontotemporal dementia (FTD) and Parkinson's disease (PD) cases have no known genetic basis. Thus, it is evident that contemporary genetic approaches have failed to explain the etiology or etiologies of ALS/FTD and PD. Recen...

(Frontiers) Neurologists have created a hands-free, thought-controlled musical instrument, which they've recently described in a report in Frontiers in Human Neuroscience. Researchers hope that this new instrument will help empower and rehabilitate patients with motor disabilities such as those from stroke, spinal cord injury, amputation, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).
