Posted June 11, 2018 06:18:08Researchers have found a new way to boost the performance of a brain-computer interface, with researchers using new performance tools.
The new tool is based on a technique that uses a mathematical algorithm to detect the electrical activity of a human brain.
The technique can also be used to improve memory and learning skills, according to the Australian company that developed the tool.
“The algorithm is based in a neural network, which is a type of artificial neural network,” Professor Anthony Gomes, from the University of Melbourne, said.
“It works by using the electrical information to predict what is going to happen next in the future, in a way that a human would.”
The tool is developed by a team led by Professor Gomes.
“We use the electrical signals to predict how the brain will behave when we have a certain number of trials, and we use that to build an estimate of the amount of neural activity that we have to perform,” Professor Goms said.
The researchers used this technique to determine if the brain was capable of responding to different types of signals.
“They were looking for the difference between the different kinds of electrical activity in the brain,” Professor Michael McLeod, a cognitive neuroscience expert at the University, said.
“We looked at the neural activity of the left hemisphere, and the brain’s response to the different signals was very different in different areas of the brain.”
This was an indication that the brain had a different ability to react to different kinds, or levels of stimulation, in different places in the cortex.
“In some regions of the cortex, you had a greater response to different signals, and in others, the brain did not respond at all,” Professor McLeod said.
Using this information, the researchers determined which areas of each brain were best suited for learning and memory, and how much the brain needed to improve in order to do so.
“There are areas in the left and right hemisphere where we could potentially do better in terms of memory and other areas where we would be better,” Professor McGolrick said.
Professor McGolricks said the new tool could be useful for people who were suffering from cognitive impairment, or those who had trouble remembering things that were presented in a video game.
“If you have difficulties with recall or in understanding information that’s presented in your mind, then the ability to see and remember what’s coming next in your brain may be important,” Professor McGillis said.
This technique has been used before by cognitive scientists.
“When you’re studying people who are learning to read, for example, people are using the same technique to study their ability to remember things that are presented in an audio recording,” Professor McGuinness said.
