New NFR grant for technologydevelopment - wireless in vivo
Wireless solutions in brain research have so far been limited
by low data transmission, short recording time or bulky batteries and devices. Our objective is to develop a wireless Micro Electro-Optical system (MEMS) device for long-term, recording and manipulations of brain activity in rodents.
We will take advatnage of innovations in micro-opto-electronics, chip and wireless technologies that have revolutionized the use of smart phones, to engineer a
wireless and fully implantable smart neuroprobes that can decode and manipulate
neural activity in real time. To achieve this we assembled a team combining expertise from the Microsystem and Nanotechnology Lab at Sintef with neuroscientists at UiO.
The research is funded by the Research Council of Norway as Researcher Project for Technological Convergence Related to Enabling Technologies.
