Novel technology for brain stimulation

Written by Adam Price-Evans

A new state of the art research program at Penn State (PA, USA) is aiming to amalgamate the fields of neuroscience and electrical engineering in order to revolutionize our approach to deciphering brain cell activity. The program will be led by Srinivas Tadigadapa and Steve Schiff (both Penn State University, PA, USA), recent winners of one of Penn State’s two exploratory BRAIN awards. Combining the electrical engineering expertise of Tadigadapa with neurosurgeon Schiff’s background in physics and control engineering, the team aim to develop a technology capable of replacing invasive electrodes used to sense and stimulate brain cells. Deep brain...
