To examine the intricate pathways of the brain and learn the valuable information provided by this organ that is largely unknown to the science, many start-ups are using the technology.
NextSense, company born from projects Google XAlpha or Monosha, it aspires to enter the brain through the ears. How? It is in full development headphones capable of recording electrical signals from the brain to study sleep and neurological status, among a large amount of neural data.
The aim of the innovative device is record electroencephalogram (EEG) in a much more comfortable and simple way, which will greatly facilitate the study of the brain, since it will not require fixing the electrodes on the patient’s scalp.
This is a history of research, perseverance, and trust in technology: After many years of testing at Emory University, Jen Dwayer, NextSense Medical Director, has found the headset to be very useful for collect EEG signs of seizures that are about to happen.
Headphones to study the brain, the future in medicine
In the future, his invention may be instrumental in predicting the aforementioned problem, as well as providing a less invasive replacement for chips located in the brain that are connected to the computer interface, such as those he wishes to implant. Elon Musk with your company Neuralink.
These headphones promise to analyze other things, such as control appliances and prostheses with the mind.
“We know our blood pressure, cholesterol and respiratory system, but it is the most important part of our brain that we still do not systematically evaluate,” he told Wired. the director of the Center for Brain Health at Emory University, Allan Levy, who collaborates to start the device.
There will be many methods of medical use for the device. This invention will have the possibility of allow users to take detailed images of quality models, hygiene and sleep patterns, valuable information with the meaning that sleeping has on the health of living beings.
Separated from Alphabet, NextSense has made 5.3 million dollars of money and does not need to highlight the biggest trade, Your next step is to transport your headphones to collect brain data universities and pharmaceuticals. They also want to present their project throughout 2022 for FDA approval.
