    NEUROLOGY DEVICES AID IN DIAGNOSING NEUROLOGIC PROBLEMS

    Advanced Signal Processing Algorithms to Diagnose Parkinsonism

    Max Little, a PhD sound  and biomedical engineer working out of the MIT Media Lab, has developed a non-invasive way to accurately (99%!) diagnose dysphonic disorders, such as Parkinsonism, through an allgorithm used by a device as simple as a Smartphone.  He is yet another example of the migration of great minds of other technologies migrating to use their minds in Internet Medicine, and applying brain matter to improve Medicine.
    See a full article on this website about this technology.
     

    See Dr. Little explaining this breakthrough device to accurately, remotely diagnose dysphonic disorders

    This Program is already in place for people over the world to place a call to diagnose Parkinsonism, with 99% accuracy HERE
     

     

    Specialized Stroke Ambulance  with Portable CT Machine

     


    In Germany, an ambulance designated for stroke victims is being developed, which as both a portable CT, as well as on site lab facilities, to allow rapid adminstration of clot-busting meds, if indicated.

    NeuroVigil’s iBrain Device

     

    The La Jolla based  iBrain Device  involves the famous physicist Stephen Hawking, who has ALS, and communicates only through cheek twitches.  Scientists are  mapping Brain waves associated with thought-intended actions, and mapping them.  This technology, which is years away from any type of application, is seen as having a possible use in neurodegenerative diseases, and determining the effect of drugs on the brain.
     


    How researchers hacked into Stephen Hawking’s brain

    The system, developed by San Diego-based NeuroVigil  called “iBrain”  utilizes a headband with a receiver to pick up varying brain waves, and uses an  computer algorithm called SPEARS to analyze the brain emanations and encode them for a text-based speech reader.

    Smartphone Being Researched as Brain Scanner

    At the University of Denmark, research is being conducted on using a Smartphone with specialized progamming and a headset to do brain scans! The system provides “a fully portable EEG based real-time functional brain scanner including stimulus delivery, data acquisition, logging, brain state decoding and 3D activity visualization.”

    See the below video to understand this technology. Of course, this is in the beta-phase, but it goes to show a trend toward more imaging studies being less invasive.
