The Art of New Technology

I recently found an article, which was actually published close to a year ago now, focusing on how a medical scanner is being used to reveal how the brain processes languages.

Set in Abu Dhabi, the magneto-encephalography machine was unveiled at the inauguration of New York University Abu Dhabi’s Neuroscience of Language Laboratory. The hope for the machine was to be able to help “researchers to further understand people with linguistic challenges, including those who develop speech impediments after a stroke or brain tumor.” The research team is able to look at the brain’s activity while a subject is given language tasks.

The machine is the first of its kind in the Gulf and one of only a handful in the entire world.

Read up on the magneto-encephalography machine here.

In addition, see a visual of the MEG machine here.
