The patient became the first in the world to undergo a procedure using augmented reality (AR) to repair an unstable spinal fracture.

The operation involved AR-assistance guided by a surgical spine robot, allowing the team to apply surgical screws in an extremely precise fashion along the spinal column.

AR is an interactive experience that enhances the real world with computer-generated perceptual information.

Using software, apps, and hardware such as special glasses, AR overlays digital content onto real-life environments and objects.

Doctors practice freezing cryotherapy to treat a malignant tumor in the pelvis using a Novarad augmented reality system.

“Bringing together AR and robotics in this minimally invasive technique had never been performed in surgery anywhere in the world,” said Mizrahi after the successful operation.

The experience of performing surgery equipped with an AR headset felt like being a combat pilot,” he recalled. »

Neuroscientists Re-create Pink Floyd Song from Listeners’ Brain Activity

Authored by

As the participants listened to Pink Floyd’s 1979 song “Another Brick in the Wall, Part 1,” the electrodes captured the electrical activity of several brain regions attuned to musical elements such as tone, rhythm, harmony and lyrics.

Neuroscientists have worked for decades to decode what people are seeing, hearing or thinking from brain activity alone.

To turn brain activity data into musical sound in the study, the researchers trained an artificial intelligence model to decipher data captured from thousands of electrodes that were attached to the participants as they listened to the Pink Floyd song while undergoing surgery. »

One of these sources describes Arizona investigators as “moving aggressively” on this stage of the inquiry into the state’s pro-Trump fake electors, which included Ward, a Trump hardliner and then-chair of the Arizona Republican Party.

Ward, her husband, Michael, and nine other Arizona Republicans signed a document falsely attesting that they were the state’s legitimate electors casting Arizona’s Electoral College votes for Trump.
