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 […]

UC-Berkeley Researchers Develop Flexible Sensor to Map Blood-Oxygen Levels Across the Body

Researchers at the University of California Berkeley have developed a flexible sensor that can map blood-oxygen levels over large areas of skin, tissue and organs, potentially giving doctors a new way to monitor healing wounds in real time. As oxygen is crucial for healing of injuries, researchers expect that the mapping sensor would enable real-time […]
