The principle of operation behind the BrainGate System is that with intact brain function, brain signals are generated even though they are not sent to the arms, hands and legs.


The common thread throughout the research is the remarkable cortical plasticity of the brain, which often adapts to BCIs, treating prostheses controlled by implants as natural limbs. Matthew Nagle could read emails and plays the computer game Pong.

The company has confirmed that one patient Matthew Nagle has a spinal cord injury while another has advanced ALS. These include cognitive functions such as language, learning, perception and memory in addition to brain malfunction such as psychiatric disorders like depression and autism.

Brain Gate Technology

Most of the effort has been dedicated to the design of user friendly or ergonomic systems by means of innovative interfaces such as voice recognition, virtual reality. It is a mind-to-movement system that allows a quadriplegic man to control a computer using his thoughts. According to the Cyberkinetics website three patients have been implanted with abstrat BrainGate system.

Practical neuroprosthetics can be linked to any part of the nervous system, for example peripheral nerves, while the term “BCI” usually designates a narrower class of systems which interface with the central nervous system. These researches cofounded cyberkinetcs, Inc. After several months he could also operate simple braigate devices such as prosthetic hand, which he used to grasp and move objects.

The company has confirmed that one patient Matt Nagle has a spinal cord injury, while another has advanced ALS. Cyberkinetics is further developing the BrainGate system to provide limb movement to people with severe motor disabilities.


It is based on cyberkinetics platform technology to sense, transmit, analyse and apply the language of neurons. The system is designed to restore functionality for a limited, immobile group of severely motor-impair individuals. It is expected that people using this system will employ a personal computer as a gateway to a range of self directed activities. And once the basics of brain mapping are worked out, there is potential for a wide variety of further applications.

The signals are interpreted and translated into cursor movements, offering the user an alternate “BrainGate pathway” to control a computer with thought, just as individuals who have the ability to move their hands use a mouse.

In one way brain computer interface, computer either accepts commands from brain or sends signals to it. Currently available assistive devices have significant limitations for both the person in need and the caregiver.

The BrainGate System may offer substantial improvement over existing assistive technologies. Neuroprosthetics and BCI seek to achieve the same aims, such as restoring sight, hearing, briangate, ability to communicate, and even cognitive function. Download your Full Reports for Braingate System.

Five quadriplegics patients in all are enrolled in the pilot study, which was approved by the U. BrainGate is a culmination of ten abstrsct of research by Dr. The principle of operation braignate the BrainGate System is that with intact brain function, brain signals are generated even though they are not sent to the arms, hands and legs.

They are translated in real time into commands that operate a computer display or any other device. The BrainGate Neural Interface Device braingage a proprietary brain-computer interface that consists of an internal neural signal sensor and external processors that convert neural signals into an output signal under the users own control.

With practice the user can refine movements using signals from only a sample of cells. Brain Gate Technology Braingatf on July 15, In addition, these devices are often obtrusive and may prevent the user from being able to simultaneously use the device and at the same time establish eye contact or carry on conversations with others.


There are also several neuroprosthetic devices that aim to restore vision, including retinal implants, although this article only discusses implants directly into the brain.

In two way brain computer interface, brains and external devices exchange information in both directions. Cyberkinetics describes that “such applications may include novel communications interfaces for motor impaired patients, as well as the monitoring and treatment of certain diseases which manifest themselves in patterns of brain activity, such as epilepsy and depression.

Research on BCIs began in the s, but it wasn’t until the mids that the first working experimental implants in humans appeared. These activities may extend beyond typical computer functions e.

After few minutes spent calibrating the inplant, Mr. Under sterile conditions and general anesthesia, Doctor will drill a small hole into the skull and implant the sensor using the same methods as in the monkey studies.

The principle behind the Brain Gate system is that, signals are generated in the motor cortex and they cannot be sent directly to the arms, hands and legs due to spinal cord injury, stroke braignate other condition. From there, the modeling will expand to other regions of the brain and, if successful, shed light on the relationships between genetic, molecular and cognitive functions of the brain. The chip is implanted on the surface of the brain in the motor cortex area that controls movement.
