Scientists from the University of California, San Francisco have developed a tool that would give paralyzed persons who are unable to speak the ability to communicate through text that appears on a screen.

Researchers with the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) developed a “neural decoder” that translates brain activity to synthesize audible speech, which was published in the journal Nature.

A new study suggests that how parents talk to children may matter just as much as how much time they spend talking.
