They connected a human brain to a Windows 10 computer through a vein

They connected a human brain to a Windows 10 computer through a vein A team of scientists has managed to connect a human brain to a computer Windows 10, passing a wire through a blood vessel.

Scientists from the University of Melbourne did this by inserting electrodes through the jugular vein into the neck and pushing them into the primary motor cortex of the brain. The electrodes were placed in the wall of the blood vessel, where they were able to detect signs in the brain which they transferred to a computer.

The approach, first developed in 2016, has been successfully tested in two people with degenerative amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Participants were able to control the mouse of a computer that was connected to their brain using their thoughts. The results of research published in an article in the Journal of NeuroInterventional Surgery.

Participants received education with her help mechanical learning for the use of wireless electrocorticographic signal transmission associated with motion attempts to control multiple mouse click actions, including zoom and left click. In combination with one program eye tracker for cursor navigation, participants achieved control of the Windows 10 operating system for performing day-to-day organic activities.

Specifically, the first participant managed to use technology brain-computer interface without home supervision after 86 days, while the second participant achieved home use after only 71 days of supervision.

The new method is a less invasive approach compared to other tested brain-computer interfaces, such as the one proposed by Neuralink his startup Elon Musk.

At a technology presentation earlier this year, Elon Musk showed a chip that could be implanted by removing a piece from the skull.
University of Melbourne scientists hope to commercialize their method through the company Synchronous.

Thomas Oxley, head of research and CEO of Synchron, said that the system Engine, at the moment, is what will offer treatment for people who are paralyzed. He also stressed that when interaction with other areas of the brain begins, it will show how technology can pave the way for further processing of the brain.
