Fast, Flexible Ionic Transistors for Bioelectronic Devices
27 February 2019, by Holly Evarts
Many major advances in medicine, especially in neurology, have been sparked by recent advances in electronic systems that can acquire, process, and interact with biological substrates. These bioelectronic systems, which are increasingly used to understand dynamic living organisms and to treat human disease, require devices that can record body signals, process them, detect patterns, and deliver electrical or chemical stimulation to address problems.
Research Brief: 3D-Printed Transparent Skull Provides a Window to the Brain
02 April 2019
Researchers at the University of Minnesota have developed a unique 3D-printed transparent skull implant for mice that provides an opportunity to watch activity of the entire brain surface in real time. The device allows fundamental brain research that could provide new insight for human brain conditions such as concussions, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.
The research is published in Nature Communications. Researchers also plan to commercialize the device, which they call See-Shell.
