Optical-Electrode: The Next Generation Brain-Machine Interface

Back to search results

The proposed innovative work is to apply a new class of liquid crystals to the task of sensing extracellular biopotentials. Successful realisation of these optical-electrode (optrode) technologies developed as part of the PhD program has the potential to revolutionise the way multi-site recordings are made from excitable tissue preparations both in-vitro and in-situ. It will also herald the next generation of brain-machine interfaces (alleviating many of the wiring and packaging issues associated with existing devices), and introduce new ways to implant devices in the body for sensing and diagnostic purposes.
