Current implantable brain devices for clinical and research applications require that each electrode is individually wired to a separate electronic system. Establishing a high-resolution interface over broad regions of the brain is infeasible under this constraint, as an electrode array with thousands of passive contacts would require thousands of wires to be individually connected. To overcome this limitation...
The objectives of this talk are to 1) accessibly introduce a new theory of network architecture relevant to biology, medicine and technology,
while minimizing math details, and 2) illustrate the key ideas with familiar examples from neuroscience, including live demos using audience brains...
The functions and organ systems of our body are, to a significant extent, controlled by electrical signals that travel along the nerves. Bioelectronic medicines will aim to control biological processes and treat disease by modulating these electrical impulses...
