Apparatus, System, and Method for Ultrasound Powered Neurotelemetry
The present embodiments provide an apparatus, system, and method for ultrasound powered neurotelemetry. In one embodiment, the apparatus includes a piezoelectric element configured to receive an ultrasonic pulse and convert the electronic pulse into an electric potential. A diode may be coupled to the piezoelectric element, the diode configured to cause an electric current to flow in response to the electric potential. The apparatus may additionally include a reference electrode and a stimulating electrode coupled to the diode. The reference electrode may sense bioelectric activity in a region of body tissue located in proximity to the reference diode. The stimulating electrode may emit a carrier signal, wherein the carrier signal is modulated in response to the bioelectric activity sensed by the reference electrode.
