Magnet Controlled Brain Implant

Rice University Researchers Develop Magnet-Controlled Brain Implant

A team of Rice University engineers has developed the first-ever neural implant that can be both programmed and charged remotely with a magnetic field. This breakthrough may make possible imbedded devices like a spinal cord-stimulating unit with a battery-powered magnetic transmitter on a wearable belt. The integrated microsystem, called MagNI (for magnetoelectric neural implant), incorporates […]

Innovative Brain Implant Reads and Stimulates Brain to Improve Parkinson’s Treatment

Neurostimulation is often used to treat conditions such as epilepsy, effects of stroke, and even depression. In this type of treatment, special devices are used to send to control the activity of the brain and central nervous system. However, currently available neurostimulator devices cannot simultaneously stimulate brain activity and record it. Related Abbott, Medtronic Driving […]
