Endovascular neural interface could help paralyzed patients

This article was originally published in Start Up

Executive Summary

Synchron Inc. is developing what it believes is the first minimally invasive implantable brain device that could help paralyzed patients: its neural interface, Stentrode, consists of an electrode array built onto a self-expanding stent that is implanted in a cerebral blood vessel. Once the stent is implanted, the array is designed to record local neuronal activity, then translate that activity into a signal that could be used to manipulate mobility-assist devices and return movement to the paralyzed user.
