Neural implant “melts” onto brain

Scientists have developed a brain implant that essentially melts into place, snugly fitting to the brain’s surface. According to the development team, the ultrathin flexible implants, made partly from silk, can record brain activity more faithfully than thicker implants embedded with similar electronics. Reported in Nature Materials, the technology could pave the way for devices […]

Researchers Demo Neural Implant That “Learns”

Neural implants, or brain-machine interfaces, are touted as the key to helping paralyzed patients and amputees control prosthetic limbs with just their thoughts. But until now these interfaces were crude and inflexible, reacting only to specific neuronal signals in a preordained manner. Now, however, University of Florida (UF) researchers have taken the concept a step […]
