Implantable neurotechnologies already treat various disorders, including epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, depression, and pain. As researchers develop new materials and technologies, the therapeutic potential of neural implants for other diseases and conditions grows. 

In this webinar brought to you by The Scientist, John Donoghue and Vasiliki (Vasso) Giagka will present their latest findings on applying clinical and technical developments to create new implantable devices for treating neurological disorders. 

Topics to be covered 

  • Successes, challenges, and opportunities for brain computer interfaces (BCIs)
    • Accomplishments in human implantable BCIs over the last decades
    • Current capabilities for movement and communication
    • Challenges for clinically useful BCIs as medical devices
  • Miniaturized and selective active neural interfaces
    • Active neural implants for bioelectronic medicine
    • Miniaturization of active neural implants
    • Multimodal neural interfaces
