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. 

SINTEF: Daniel Nilsen Wright, Enrique Escobedo-Cousin, Jo Gjessing, Are Hellandsvik.
UiO: Torkel Hafting, Charlotte Boccara, Marianne Fyhn (Cinpla)

The research is funded by the Research Council of Norway as Researcher Project for Technological Convergence Related to Enabling Technologies.
