Pitt Researchers Develop Tiny Light-Activated Electrode for Neural Stimulation

Untethered Electrode for Neural Stimulation
Neural Stimulation involves electrical stimulation of nerve tissues and is the basis of emerging treatments for neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s disease. One of the major problems with this technique is the need to have a cable connecting the implanted electrode to an external controller. Researchers at the University of Pittsburg (Pitt) have developed a […]
