Neural Probes for Brain-Computer Interfaces Mimic Real Neurons

Released on March 28, 2019

Brain-computer interfaces, those that could restore function in severely disabled people and give them ability to control robotic arms and other devices, depend on neural probes implanted into the brain. These technologies tend to work pretty well at first, but over time they draw attention of the surrounding immune system and the brain’s defensive mechanisms, resulting in inflammation, death of nearby neurons, and loss of functionality. Scientists at Harvard University have now created neural probes that mimic natural neurons, and thereby remain “under the radar” and avoid negative consequences.
