An innovative sewing machine technique of installing brain electrodes could offer a new method of minimally invasive neural recording.
The technique was described in the preprint server Biorxiv, and involves inserting the electrodes using thin-film polymer probes, a fine and stiff insertion needle, and a robotic insertion machine. The device would implant the probes quickly and precisely, paving the way to safe and scalable neural interfaces.
The process is being developed by authors linked to the brain computing startup Neuralink, which was founded by Elon Musk and is helping to fuel speculation about the technique.
