Integrated Implant Technology for Multi-modal Brain Interfaces

Project description

Implantable human-machine interfaces to treat chronic conditions

The treatment of chronic conditions may soon involve bioelectronic medicine. Imagine an implantable network of sensors and actuators. While the actuators deploy electricity, light, drugs and thermal energy as modalities of the therapeutic programmes, the sensors will monitor the progress. This is being developed by the EU-funded IntegraBrain project. Specifically, the project will tailor this implantable network for applications in soft tissue organs, such as the nervous system, where injury or degeneration often results in chronic disability. The aim is to demonstrate seizure control by multimodal neuromodulation in the central nervous system and reversable block and excitation in the peripheral nervous system.
