Rice University’s Jacob Robinson, with Yale and Columbia colleagues, are developing FlatScope — a flat, brain implanted microscope capable of monitoring and triggering neurons modified to be fluorescent when active.
While capturing greater detail than current brain probes, the microscope also goes through deep levels that illustrate sensory input processing — which they hope to be able to control.
Aiming to produce a super high-resolution neural interface, FlatScope is a part of DARPA’s NESD program, founded by Phillip Alvelda, and now led by Brad Ringeisen.
Phillip Alvelda will be a featured speaker at ApplySci’s Wearable Tech + Digital Health + NeuroTech Boston conference on September 19, 2017 at the MIT Media Lab. Other speakers include: Joi Ito – Ed Boyden – Roz Picard – George Church – Nathan Intrator – Tom Insel – John Rogers – Jamshid Ghajar – Michael Weintraub – Nancy Brown – Steve Kraus – Bill Geary – Mary Lou Jepsen – Daniela Rus
