I just came across this research paper(http://www.nature.com/nnano/journal/v10/n7/full/nnano.2015.115.html), which introduces Syringe-injectable electronics directly into the brain. A direct link to the neurons, What a fascinating idea!!!
So I was wandering, if we can start recording neural connections and processes by embedding nanosensors into this flexible electronics for to sense electrochemical and ionic exchange between neurons, instead of EEG, which reads only mechanical data.
Any ideas or work done towards it?
Also, there is one more research(http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0956566315300610) that demonstrated creating artificial neuron using organic electronic biomimetic neuron, if we can make close model of neuron with this kind of technologies and maybe start replacing original neurons one by one, we may able to unlock the mysteries of our brain much faster!
Please share your ideas or opinions about these technologies!!!
