The Nine Habits of Highly Effective Brains
————— While we are still (hopefully) enjoying some downtime, let’s review some good lifestyle options we can all follow to not only maintain, but improve, our vibrant brains. 1. Learn more about the “It” in “Use It or Lose It.” A basic understanding will serve you well to appreciate your brain’s beauty as a living and constantly-developing dense forest with billions of neurons and synapses. 2. Take care of your nutrition. Did you know that the brain only weighs 2% of body mass but consumes over 20% of the oxygen and nutrients we intake? As a general rule, yo...

RoboSkeleton Brain-Machine Interface enables paraplegics to regain motor control
Eight chronic spinal cord injury (SCI) paraplegics were subjected to long-term training BMI neurorehabilitation paradigm to restore locomotion. The paradigm combined virtual reality training, visual-tactile feedback and walking with two EEG-controlled robotic actuators providing tactile feedback to subjects. All eight patients experienced neurological improvements in somatic sensation and regained voluntary motor control in key muscles [...] (Source: Neurobot)

While the areas associated with the basic functioning of the body such as vision, hearing and movement are fully developed by adolescence, the areas associated with complex thought and decision making are still changing… You can think of the brain as a global airline network that’s made up of small infrequently used airports and huge hubs like Heathrow where there...
