Multimodal Polymer Fibers Implanted in the Brain Stimulate and Record Neural Behavior

Multimodal Polymer Fibers Implanted in the Brain Stimulate and Record Neural Behavior

Researchers at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have created complex multimodal polymer fibers that have the ability to deliver drugs and optical signals into the brain, directly. These fibers also enable continuous monitoring of the effect of numerous inputs thorough simultaneous electrical readouts. Further, these fibers can be produced with thickness less than that of a hair’s width. [More]
