Innovative Silicon Valley

Silicon Valley is a nickname given for the southern portion of the San Francisco Bay Area. It is home to many of the world's largest and innovative technological corporations and is a hub for technology startups. The term originally refereed to the region's large number of silicon chip innovators and manufacturers, but is now used to refer to the American high-technology economic sector.

NeuroVigil has a satellite research facility located at the historic NASA Ames Research Center, in the heart of Silicon Valley. Because of its key location we are able to partner with many affiliates such as Stanford University and NASA, bringing leading innovations of the unknown mind to the forefront of technology. 

Science, Medicine, and Technology: 

 

 Stanford University is located between San Francisco and San Jose. It is one of the world's leading teaching and reserach universities. Since its opening in 1891, Stanford has been dedicated to finding solutions to big challenges and to preparing students for leadership in a complex world. 

 

 

National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Ames Research Center is one of 10 NASA field Centers. For more than 60 years, Ames has be on the frontier of world-class research and development in the areas of entry systems, supercomputer, NextGen air transportation, Airborne science, Low-cost missions, Biology & astrobiology, Exoplanets, Autonomey & robotics, Lunar science, Human Factors, and wind tunnels. 

 

 

Moffet Federal Airfield or Naval Air Station Moffet Field, is currently operated by NASA. In 1933 the United States Government commissioned the federal airfield, with the original missions to serve as a home base for the Navy dirigible the U.S.S. Macon. The military base was closed on July 1, 1994 and supervision of the federal base was turned over to NASA Ames reseach center. Historic Hangar One was slated to become SpaceWorld Hangar One, a planned interactive space and science center, but polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) have been found in the building which, due to their toxicity to humans and the environment, must be remediated or contained. The US Navy, in cooperation with the Environmental Protection Agency, Regional Water Quality Control Board, and other community stakeholders, is in the process of determining how best to remove the threat the hangar poses to the public and the environment. At this juncture, the decision to either tear down or clean up Hangar One has not been reached. More information is available from NASA Ames Environmental Services.

NeuroVigil's Brain Based Communication Project for ALS sufferers

"Dr. Low and his company have done some outstanding work in this field" - Stephen Hawking

In 2011, NeuroVigil launched an all out effort at the request of NeuroVigil advisor, Stephen Hawking, to come up with a computational cure for Locked-In Syndrome, with the goal of enabling ALS sufferers to keep being able to communicate... via their minds. In 2012, NeuroVigil began a clinical trial on ALS in Philadelphia in partnership with Terry Heiman-Patterson, and in 2013, Augie Nieto, who was introduced to NeuroVigil by Qualcomm chairman Paul Jacobs, became the first iBrain empowered ALS sufferer to spell a word with his mind: "communicate". In January 2014, a patent was submitted and accepted by the U.S. patent office for a method of extracting brain activity.

More information:

 
Single-Channel iBrain EEG recordings were conducted in a high-functioning 70 year old ALS patient attempting to move one of four limbs after a verbal cue: the left and right hand and foot. Raw EEG signals were analyzed with the SPEARS algorithm in order to make high-frequency/low spectral power signals detectable. Concurrent video recordings were obtained. During the attempted movements, the subject's brain activity demonstrated distinct broad-spectrum pulses extending to the Gamma and ultra-high Gamma ranges. Such pulses were present in the absence of actual movement and absent when the subject was not attempting motion. Activity in the Alpha range was detected when the subject closed his eyes, as expected. The emergence of such high bandwidth biomarkers opens the possibility to link intended movements to a library of words and convert them into speech, thus providing ALS sufferers with communication tools more dependent on the brain than on the body.

The researchers traveled to Dr. Hawking's offices in Cambridge, England, fitted him with the iBrain headband and asked him ''to imagine that he was scrunching his right hand into a ball,'' Dr. Low said. The algorithm was able to discern Dr. Hawking's thoughts as signals.
