This fully implantable microchip is surgically positioned on the surface of the brain. It can potentially enhance treatments for severe spinal cord injury, stroke, paralysis, and brain diseases like Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, epilepsy, dementia, or even psychiatric conditions.
The neural microdevice is composed of thousands of electrodes that are able to capture, read, alter or translate brain signals to other parts of the brain and the body. It is battery-powered, wireless, and works by using Bluetooth protocol. Further, it also allows for brain-computer communication by helping to type messages and control a prosthetic limb or a wheelchair.
