Latest Chronic electrode implants Stories
A team of neuroengineers based at Brown University has developed a fully implantable and rechargeable wireless brain sensor capable of relaying real-time broadband signals from up to 100 neurons in freely moving subjects.
A thin, flexible electrode developed at the University of Michigan is 10 times smaller than the nearest competition and could make long-term measurements of neural activity practical at last.
Through new technology scientists have a clearer understanding into the cellular mechanisms of neuronal networks.
Physiological signals can nowadays be easily monitored with measurement devices implanted inside a living body.
Scientists have developed a brain implant that essentially melts into place, snugly fitting to the brain's surface. The technology could pave the way for better devices to monitor and control seizures, and to transmit signals from the brain past damaged parts of the spinal cord.
Brain implants that can more clearly record signals from surrounding neurons in rats have been created at the University of Michigan.
