IIT Palakkad researchers have found a way to improve the functioning of the brain-computer interface when used by stroke patients.
Stroke is a disease that affects the arteries leading to and within the brain. It is one of the major cause of death and a leading cause of disability.
A stroke occurs when a blood vessel that carries oxygen and nutrients to the brain is either blocked by a clot or bursts.
Importance of Discovery
Researchers have used a trained neural network, with inputs from neuroscience, to develop a new channel-selection method that makes the process more efficient and effective. The method employed is more efficient and works in most of the cases.
