Understanding the molecular mechanisms by which soft implants mitigate immune response at the interface with the brain can help create reliable implants.
Investigating the impact of micromotion on implants will lead to a better understanding of the role of mechanical stresses in the dysfunction and failure of neuromodulation devices.
An accessible microelectrode array will allow researchers across multiple disciplines to study tissue oxygenation and local field potentials.
Investigating how physiological micromotion modulates mitochondrial activity will help improve neural interface designs for neuromodulation.
Developing a system for deep-brain stimulation that uses cerebral blood flow rates will help optimize the efficacy of the treatment.
