High Resolution, Reduced Energy Flexible Electronics for Enhanced Brain-Spine Interfaces (REFLEX)

Project description

Innovative electronics for brain–spine interfaces

Bioelectronic medical devices, such as brain–spine interfaces, assist in the treatment of sensorimotor and cognitive deficits. However, the biological and electrophysiological mechanisms underlying treatment are poorly understood. The EU-funded REFLEX project seeks to improve the interfaces’ power and packaging technology and achieve real-time monitoring of neural pathways. The project will use innovative technologies, more specifically the picojoule/bit energy efficiency in wireless backscatter communication and conformable, compatible circuit boards. Via high spatiotemporal resolution monitoring of neural pathways, the project will test the effectiveness of targeted therapies in regenerating damaged neural pathways in the spinal cord.
