We at Neurogadget try to give you all around coverage of the consumer neurotech industry, but It’s still a rare treat to get to hear from the companies making apps and devices themselves. This week we’re bringing you a Q & A session with Chad Veinotte, director of neurogaming at Personal Neuro Devices (PND), the company that brought us UpCake, the first mind-controlled game for Android. We asked him about their latest title Neuronauts, the development process, the neurotech market, and what makes PND tick. Read the rest of this entry »

Serotonin And Happiness Are Regulated By Gut Bacteria - BMED Report University of College Cork (UCC) scientists have shown that brain levels of serotonin, the ‘happy hormone,’ are regulated by the amount of bacteria in the gut during early life. Their research is being published today in the leading international psychiatry journal, Molecular Psychiatry. This research shows that normal adult brain function depends on the presence of gut microbes during development.

Store — MindWave The MindWave Education turns your computer into a private tutor. The headset takes decades of laboratory brainwave technology and puts it into a bundled software package for under $100. It safely measures brainwave signals and monitors the attention levels of students as they interact with math, memory and pattern recognition applications. Ten apps are included with experiences ranging from fun entertainment to serious education.

Neuroacoustics: The Healing Power of Sound ALBUQUERQUE, NM—The experience of sound is at the very core of human consciousness, and it can be a powerful tool for healing, said Jeffrey Thompson, DC, at the annual meeting of the American Holistic Medical Association. For more than 20 years, Dr. Thompson has been exploring neuroacoustics and the therapeutic application of sound. His researches have led to the development of precise protocols for using sound to modulate brainwave patterns, affect sympathetic-parasympathetic balance, and synchronize the activity of the right and left brain hemispheres. He has applied these methods in stress reduction, cardiovascular disease prevention, management of depression, and a host of other conditions. “It is akin to the picking of a lock on the neurophysiologic processes that the body already uses to heal itself,” said Dr.

Comparison of consumer brain–computer interfaces This is a comparison of brain-computer interface devices available on the consumer market. Comparison[edit] Open-source projects[edit] Neurological disorder MMF found to be caused by vaccines: scientific proof (NaturalNews) It is a little-known condition that can trigger persistent and debilitating symptoms similar to those associated with multiple sclerosis (MS) and fibromyalgia, but is also one that the medical profession at large is still unwilling to acknowledge. And yet emerging research continues to show that macrophagic myofasciitis, or MMF, is a very real condition brought about as a direct result of vaccines that contain aluminum adjuvants, which become lodged in muscle tissue and lead to severe neurological damage and other problems. First identified in 1998, MMF is characterized by debilitating muscle and joint pain, chronic inflammation, and incapacitating fatigue.

This method shows great potential for improving many mental capabilities and exploring consciousness.

Your Memories Need Their Sleep Ann Whitman (212) The big test is tomorrow—should you stay up late and study, or cut short the cram session and get a good night’s sleep? Most if not all students face this dilemma at some point in their lives. Until very recently, their choice might have seemed obvious: stay up and study, to commit as much information to memory as possible. But research now indicates that missing sleep in order to study may well be self-defeating. A good night’s sleep helps greatly—and is essential in some cases—to making just-learned information consolidate or stick in memory.

Changing brains: why neuroscience is ending the Prozac era Mice are used in research into optogenetics, which suggests that even finer control of the brain may be possible. Photograph: John B Carnett/Popular Science via Getty Images The psychiatric drug age may have reached its peak. Although mind-altering medications are being prescribed in record numbers, signs of a radically new approach to understanding and treating mental illness are emerging from the deep waters of neuroscience. No longer focused on developing pills, a huge research effort is now devoted to altering the function of specific neural circuits by physical intervention in the brain. BrainMaster Technologies - Neurofeedback Discovery Channel’s MythBusters have built their reputation, and a television career, on bringing serious scientific investigation to some not-so-easy projects. These experienced special effects engineers and their team have found their place in life by finding the truth about myths, related to everything from fire and electricity to explosions, jumping cars, and homemade weapons. Their mission is to debunk, prove, or otherwise conclude what can be said about myths and legends using experiments, simulations, and (sometimes unbelievable) tests, and they do it with creativity and zeal.

Neuroscientists reveal magicians' secrets - Technology & science - Science - LiveScience NEW YORK — There is a place for magic in science. Five years ago, on a trip to Las Vegas, neuroscientists Stephen Macknik and Susana Martinez-Conde realized that a partnership was in order with a profession that has an older and more intuitive understanding of how the human brain works. Magicians, it seems, have an advantage over neuroscientists.
