Groundbreaking Research at Technion

Brain-Computer Interface: Overcoming Brain Injury

Once the stuff of science fiction, Technion researchers are developing technology that would allow a person paralyzed by ALS or Parkinson’s disease to move an object using only his thought processes. Prof. Miriam Zacksenhouse discusses her cutting-edge research in brain-computer interface: the point where brain research meets robotics.
TCE: Technion Computer Engineering Center

As computer technology has evolved, the boundaries between electronics and software have blurred. The new Technion Computer Engineering Center combines faculty from both areas, while also connecting Technion researchers to industry. Ruth Boneh, Director TCE and formerly of Intel, explains the novel concept.
