Please note that scientists create speech from brain signals.
Scientists denounce that they have developed a virtual prosthetic voice that deciphers the purpose of the brain's minds and makes speech comprehensible without having to take a muscle in the mouth. (Stephen Hawking, physicist and author, used a cheek to talk to the computer that typed the keyboard characters.)
"It's a wonderful job and it makes another level to reset speech," said Anthony Ritaccio, Fla. Of Jacksonville. Maya Clinic neurologist and neuroscientist, not a member of the research group. .
The new system, described in Wednesday in the Nature magazine, is decoded The brain motor commands driving the voice movement During the speech – the sting of the tongue, the tightening of the lips – and generates incomprehensible sentences about the natural chain of the speaker.
The pre-implantation-based communication systems have produced around eight minutes words. The new program is created around 150 minutes, the natural rhythm of speech.
The researchers also found that a synthesized voice system based on self-brain activity could be used by someone else and adjusted – indicating the day-to-day virtual off-shelf system could be available.
The group intends to go to clinical trials to test the systems. The biggest clinical challenge may be to find the right patients: the strokes that disable the person's speech often damage or eradicate the brain areas that help brain joint.
The research is wonderful. Congratulations to the researchers.
