Rebuilding the brain: Using AI, electrodes, and machine learning to bridge gaps in the human …

CSNE researchers work on neural recording. Image: CSNE Parallels have been drawn between the human brain and the computer since technology’s earliest days. One day, however, computing could be used to help brains damaged by traumatic events like a stroke to work once again. Like a computer, the brain requires huge numbers of connections to work, allowing messages to be passed from one part of the brain to another, or from the brain to the body. If any of those connections are blocked or broken, the messages can’t get through. In the case of spinal cord injury, messages from the brain to the muscles of the limb might be cut off, leaving paralysis. In the case of stroke, if the language production center of the brain can’t talk to the…
