Ultrasound Helmet Designed for Live Images and Brain-Machine Interface
A team of researchers from Vanderbilt University plan to create a brain-machine interface using an ultrasound helmet and electroencephalogram (EEG) that would allow doctors to view images as clear as those of the heart or womb. By using ultrasound technology for the brain, doctors could not only view real-time images during surgery, but also gain a better understanding of which areas become stimulated by certain feelings or actions. The ultrasound helmet would ultimately provide an effective way for people to control software and robotics by thinking about it.
