'Brain Stethoscope' Turns Brain Waves Into Sound to Detect Silent Seizures

Stanford University researchers have developed a 'brain stethoscope' that can help detect non-convulsive epileptic seizures. Their algorithm translates the brain's electrical activity into sound so that even non-specialists can detect these silent seizures. The research team has started a company, Ceribell, to develop an EEG device that incorporates their brain stethoscope algorithm.
