BrainGate (Research Consortium)

BrainGate (Research Consortium)

A collaborating team of neurologists, neuroscientists, engineers, computer scientists, neurosurgeons, mathematicians and other researchers developing brain-computer interface (BCI) technologies. Their BCI technology is aimed at restoring communication, mobility and independence in people who suffer from neurological disease, injury or limb loss.

Members of the BrainGate research team are affiliated with Brown University, Massachusetts General Hospital, Stanford University, Case Western Reserve University and Providence VA Medical Center. BrainGate creates and tests micro-electrodes implanted into the brain which are able to decode neural signals associated with the intent to move a limb in real-time and use that information to operate external devices. 



An investigative device called BrainGate Neural Interface System was developed from preclinical research at Brown University. The BrainGate Consortia is conducting clinical trials for the BrainGate2 Neural Interface System. BrainGate Co. is a privately-held firm which holds the core intellectual property for the BrainGate system and is focused on advancing the BrainGate Neural Interface System.
