Microelectronics for Brain-Computer Interface Applications

As integrated circuit technology becomes increasingly deployed to address the challenges of human health, the opportunity to interface directly to the brain is one of the most exciting and high impact opportunities. Challenges like epilepsy, paraplegia, quadriplegia, locked-in syndrome, MLS, Parkinsons, and many others, are being addressed by this new technology. The recent announcement of significant advances by Neuralink is one example of the potential.This talk will summarize some of the challenges and opportunities of brain-computer-interface (BCI) technology from an integrated circuit perspective.
