DARPA NESD developing high bandwidth implantable neural interfaces for controlling machines with brain and mind control of soldiers

Neural interfaces currently approved for human use squeeze a tremendous amount of information through just 100 channels, with each channel aggregating signals from tens of thousands of neurons at a time. The result is noisy and imprecise.  DARPA announced NESD in January 2016 with aim to develop to  develop an implantable …

DARPA TNT through activation of peripheral nerves speeds up learning by 40% , enable soldiers analyzing intelligence and cryptography techniques

In March 2016, DARPA launched the Targeted Neuroplasticity Training (TNT) program, that seeks to advance the pace and effectiveness of a specific kind of learning—cognitive skills training—through the precise activation of peripheral nerves that can in turn promote and strengthen neuronal connections in the brain. TNT will pursue development of …

New technologies being developed to detect and predict cognitive stress that can result in failure of military Missions

Soldiers often have to perform complex tasks in extreme conditions, sometimes approaching or exceeding the limits of their capabilities. Some of the missions the soldiers perform can take weeks, away from in difficult terrain like deserts and mountains which requires maintaining an incredibly high level of physical fitness. Around the …

DARPA’s QuBE aimed to employ Quantum Biology effects to design next generation navigation, chemical and Magnetic field sensors

The first quantum revolution enabled inventions such as the laser and transistor, the basic building block of computers, when scientists knew the rules of quantum mechanics and built devices that followed those rules. The second quantum revolution is all about controlling individual quantum systems,, such as charged molecules, to a …

DARPA developing new technologies to counter biological weapon threats

Biological weapons achieve their intended effects by infecting people with disease-causing microorganisms and other replicative entities, including viruses, infectious nucleic acids and prions. The chief characteristic of biological agents is their ability to multiply in a host over time.   Viral pathogens pose a continuous and shifting biological threat to …

Neural Dust implanted in the body without surgery could monitor or stimulate internal muscles, organs, nerves or brain in real time

U C Berkeley engineers have built the first dust-sized, wireless sensors that can be implanted in the body, bringing closer the day when a Fitbit-like device could monitor internal nerves, muscles or organs in real time.Because these batteryless sensors could also be used to stimulate nerves and muscles, the technology also …
