A minimally invasive brain implant is to be tested on humans for the first time. The device, named Stentrode, will be placed in blood vessels in the motor cortex, and researchers believe it will help improve movement and speech for those with a range of neurological disorders.
Researchers have developed new neural implants that enable targeted delivery of drugs deep into brain structures.
Researchers have developed a new deep brain stimulation device that is able to use feedback from the brain to fine tune its signal. The device could help those with Parkinson's disease.
Researchers have singled and taken control of a circuit in mouse brains in order to dial the animal's mood up or down.
Researchers report a surgically implanted neuroprosthetic devices that coordinates the activity hip, knee and ankle muscles led to improved walking speed and distance for a patient with limited mobility following a stroke.
Researchers have developed a new brain implant which may help prevent Alzheimer's disease.
A new neuroprosthesis has been developed to bypass a damaged section of the hippocampus and provide a neighboring area with correctly translated memory. The device could help people with Alzheimer's disease or those who have problems with memory following brain injury.
Researchers report their new findings could bring natural movement of prosthetic limbs closer to reality.
