-non-invasive cerebral flow monitor


They have “….developed an unparalleled non-invasive platform for measuring both microcirculation blood flow (via Doppler analysis) and localized oxygen saturation (via spectral analysis). Ornim’s patented UTLight™ technology employs the interaction of light and sound to define the measurement volume. This technology is unique among all other commercially available NIRS products, as it provides measurement from a well-defined sample volume (e.g., cortical vasculature) and is mostly unaffected by skin pigment or other patient-specific variables”.

Live “Tweeted” Surgery Performed in Houston May 2012

 A removal of a cavernous angioma on a 21-year-old woman.= was performed at a Houston Hospital, and “tweeted live”, including pictures and video, and a live video feed from the operating microscope.  The purpose is to educate the public.

Researchers Make Paralyzed Limb Move by “Eavesdropping” on the Brain’s Neural Commands

” Neural signals from the brain that correspond with a basic limb movement, such as grasping an object, are recorded with a special electrode array in the brain. Neuroscientists use these recordings to develop an algorithm that processes the neural signals and predicts patterns of muscle activity. The processed signals are sent in less than 40 milliseconds to a modified functional electrical stimulation (FES) system in the arm, which in turn causes the relevant muscles to contract.”
