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.
A new stent-based electrode BMI could help restore some movement to people with paralysis without the need for open brain surgery.
