Tattoo electrodes for EEG

Graz University Researchers Develop Tattoo Electrodes For Long-Term EEG Brain Monitoring

EEG or Electroencephalography is a test used to evaluate the electrical activity in the brain. It uses electrodes to record brainwaves on the scalp. However, due to these electrodes, EEG cannot be used for extended periods of time. These are usually hard, require a gel to be applied, and are applied en masse using a […]

Elon Musk Unveils Neuralink Brain Implant, Connecting Human Brains to Computers

Elon Musk has announced plans to implant computer chips in people’s brains that he says will treat brain diseases and enable superhuman intelligence. The US billionaire’s Neuralink, the secretive company developing brain-machine interfaces, stepped out of the shadows recently and showed off some of the technology it has been developing to the public for the […]

DARPA Funds Six Organizations to Support Next-Generation Nonsurgical Neurotechnology program

The U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has awarded funding to six organizations to support the Next-Generation Nonsurgical Neurotechnology (N3) program. The groups will attempt to develop high-resolution, bidirectional brain-machine interfaces that match the performance of implanted electrodes without the need for surgery. The six organizations are: Battelle Memorial Institute, Carnegie Mellon University, Johns […]
Pireta smart clothes

Pireta Aims to Make Smart Clothes Truly Wearable

Smart clothes found in the market today have sensors sticking out of them in various places, making them cumbersome and not really “wearable.” Pireta, a UK-based startup, has developed a unique free-form process to add durable, conductive, metallic patterns directly into textiles without changing the fabric feel or performance. Pireta’s technology allows electronic systems to […]
Untethered Electrode for Neural Stimulation

Pitt Researchers Develop Tiny Light-Activated 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 […]
