Could Neuralink Adopt This Approach?


Recommended Posts

"By tuning into a subset of brain waves, University of Michigan researchers have dramatically reduced the power requirements of neural interfaces while improving their accuracy—a discovery that could lead to long-lasting brain implants that can both treat neurological diseases and enable mind-controlled prosthetics and machines.


The team, led by Cynthia Chestek, associate professor of biomedical engineering and core faculty at the Robotics Institute, estimated a 90% drop in power consumption of neural interfaces by utilizing their approach."

sounds nifty. There's other options for power transfer though, like having an induction-pack and flat supercap instead of through-wiring. Bio-proofing is another major hurdle.

I'm still wondering what material they end up making the lace with more than the processing architecture o f the signal filters. :D

Good article. Sad that it's $9 just to read it.
