Title: “The great challenges of small probes for high resolution brain interfaces”
Abstract: “Next generation of neural interfaces should have high resolution in recording and stimulation, be perfectly tissue integrated and remain stable over indefinite time frames. We do not yet know how to fully realize this vision, but in the meantime are starting to better understand wherein the real challenges lie. In my talk I will discuss how small scale neural interfaces offer great potential for large scale interfacing with neurons. I will outline how refined electrode materials, optimized sur-face chemistry or bioactivity, or overall improvement of the systems including their structural bio-compatibility all need to be part of the solution.”
