New NeuroFocus headset gets closer to the Mynd 21 March 2011 | By James Verrinder US— Neuromarketing agency NeuroFocus has launched a new wireless headset to measure respondents’ brainwave activity in more natural settings, both in and out of home. The Mynd headset has been in development for the past three years. Previously NeuroFocus relied on wired technology (see here). NeuroFocus CEO A.K Pradeep (pictured) said: “While developing Mynd, we focused on achieving medical-grade scientific precision along with extraordinary ease of use and aesthetics.”
Nearly 2,000 tiny lights shine from the ceiling of Wendy Davis' Maryland laboratory, allowing the "vision scientist" to come up with measurements for energy saving lighting for homes and businesses. The Vision Science laboratory that Davis established and leads at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) -- the only one of its kind in the world -- runs experiments with LEDs or light-emitting diodes, now used in traffic signals, nightlights and backpackers' headlamps. LEDs, a type of solid-state lighting, last much longer than other lights and many people are interested in expanding the market for their use. Nearly 12 percent of the electricity consumed in the United States goes to powering lights in people's homes and 25 percent is used in commercial buildings, according to the Department of Energy. "LEDs have the potential to be much more efficient than the light sources we have now," Davis said. Wendy Davis: Helping manufacturers bring energy-saving lighting to consumers

This scientific breakthrough promises to revolutionize the engineering of drugs used to treat ailments such as Alzheimer's disease and schizophrenia. The team produced the world's first high-resolution images of the α7 (Alpha 7) receptor, a molecule responsible for transmitting signals between neurons – particularly in regions of the brain believed to be associated with learning and memory.

Neurotechnology is any technology that has a fundamental influence on how people understand the brain and various aspects of consciousness, thought, and higher order activities in the brain. It also includes technologies that are designed to improve and repair brain function and allow researchers and clinicians to visualize the brain. Background The field of neurotechnology has been around for nearly half a century but has only reached maturity in the last twenty years. Neurotechnology

Neurology Nanotech Nanoscale technologies have a potential revolutionary impact into the basic understanding, visualization and therapeutic applications of neuroscience. The special symposium on Nanotechnology to Neuroscience will deliver the state of the art in nanotechnology applications towards the development of therapies and pharmaceuticals for the treatment of neurological disorders, taking advantage of the nanoscale structure of neural cells (both neurons and glia). The symposium will include technologies such as quantum dots and other nanotechnologies that can visualize, measure, and track the molecular structure and dynamics of both intracellular and extracellular processes in neural cells. Technologies will be presented that are designed and used to regulate, influence, and modify cellular neural properties such as directed growth, proliferation, secretion of specific factors, differentiation, etc.
