Intracortical magnetic stimulation of the brain

Bidirectional brain-machine interfaces will play a significant role in the domains of healthcare and rehabilitation, in the future. Progress in the field requires a deeper understanding of the neuroscience of the brain, innovation in the physics and engineering of hardware used to read and write into the brain, and discussion of privacy and ethical issues that such devices will bring to the table. A pioneer of user-machine interfaces, PARC is collaborating with academic and industrial partners to conceive of, develop, prototype and test hardware for a diverse set of biomedical applications including stimulation of the motor and visual cortices for aiding in movement and sight and deep brain stimulation to address chronic depression and anxiety-related issues. This talk will focus on implantable magnetic microprobes that enable high specificity and effectiveness of neurostimulation and will touch upon work on a compact platform for non-invasive modulation and sensing of brain activity, and other PARC bioelectronics research.
