New brain implant can read deep neural activity from the surface – study



Researchers at the University of California San Diego have developed a neural implant that provides information about activity deep inside the brain while sitting on its surface.

The implant is made up of a thin, transparent and flexible polymer strip that is packed with a dense array of graphene electrodes.

The technology, tested in transgenic mice, brings the researchers a step closer to building a minimally invasive brain-computer interface (BCI) that provides high-resolution data about deep neural activity by using recordings from the brain surface.
