How artificial neural coding could create advanced prosthetics

Researchers are artificially making neural coding to build advanced prosthetics, thanks to research from the University of Illinois. Coordinated Science Lab (CSL) researchers at the University of Illinois have mathematically figured out how the brain times impulses that are sent out due to a sensory stimulus. “There was a major question in neuron function that

7 diagnostic devices to boost healthcare in the developing world

Could this at-home monitoring device make the elderly more independent?

A University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign student developed a home monitoring device that allows the elderly to live alone without families worrying about them, according to a case study from Model Solution (Milpitas, Calif.). Jun Young Park, a senior industrial design student led by professor Sung Too Shin, created the INCAIR at-home monitoring device to help
