Smart Chip Implant in Brain Helps To Battle Parkinsonís Disease

A smart chip that allows the transmission of brain data wirelessly and with high accuracy has been developed by scientists at Nanyang Technological University.

According to scientists it may help combat Parkinson's disease or allow paraplegic people to move their prosthetic limbs. "It is about a hundred times more efficient than current processing chips on the market. It will lead to more compact medical wearable devices, such as portable ECG monitoring devices and neural implants, since we no longer need large batteries to power them," said Arindam Basu, Assistant professor from NTU's School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering.

The research team have tested the chip on data recorded from animal models, which showed that it could decode the brain's signal to the hand and fingers with 95% accuracy.
