First it was Elon Musk, now Facebook. Suddenly, all the big Silicon Valley players want to get into brain tech (IEEE Spectrum). Mark Zuckerberg added his perspective on the news in a post soon after the announcement, presenting the brain-typing project as a natural evolution of Facebook’s mission to help people share their interior worlds. If they like sharing comments, photos, and videos, why not directly share their thoughts too?
In my opinion, we must invest in this BCI solution for several years to achieve a fluid and natural writing resorting solely to the identification of brain electrical impulses through non-invasive equipment.

The sectional Brain Atlas focuses on the anatomical structures while both the schematic and slice view are used to represent the area of interest. Any region of interest is also accessible with a search function either by name or abbreviation:
- High detailed anatomic coronal atlas of the human brain;
- Highlighted anatomical structures;
- Integrated nomenclature.

Glass Brain is a project by Gazzaley Lab and Neuroscape Lab at the University of California, San Francisco and the Swartz Center for Computational Neuroscience at the University of California, San Diego that’s a 3D visualization of a brain with real-time brain activity pulled in via an electroencephalography (EEG) cap that can be navigated using a gamepad. This is made possible thanks to BCILAB brain-computer interface technology and the Unity game engine.
