Brain scanner that helps communicate with the physically paralysed
February 3, 2017
Patients suffering from locked-in syndrome may soon be able to communicate with their doctors and loved ones through a scanner linked to their brain.
In locked-in syndrome, the body is paralyzed while the mind remains conscious.
The new technique uses a computer that is linked to a patient's brain and can indicate a 'yes' or 'no' response.
Researchers in Europe were able to accurately understand four patients 70% of the time after asking them simple 'yes' or 'no' questions.
