INtroDucing axial rEsolution in oPToelectronic implantable devices for tHe brain

Project description

Implantable device for gathering electrophysiological and optical signals in deep brain structures

Neuroscience research and the field of neurosurgery would benefit greatly from the possibility to access deep brain structures safely. The EU-funded IN DEPTH project aims to develop a safe, minimally invasive brain implant for simultaneous registration of electrophysiological and optical signals. The device will be fully compatible with equipment for neuroscience research or neurosurgery, and its development involves minimally invasive tapered optical fibres, enabling multipoint light collection and electrophysiological measurements. The system’s applications could include the investigation of cerebral dysfunctions, including Parkinson’s disease, schizophrenia or epilepsy, and fluorescence-guided brain surgery with the simultaneous monitoring of brain electrical activity.
