Up to now, researchers working to develop more sensitive brain-machine interfaces have relied on electroencephalogram (EEG) readers and devices implanted in or near the brain through surgery. We have recently seen some of these devices, such as a device that helps improve concentration and another that can provide greater autonomy to the less-physically-abled. Now, engineers at the University of California at Berkeley have built a dust-sized, wireless sensor that can be sprinkled throughout the body and brain, and used to monitor and stimulate very small groups of neurons. Eventually, similar devices could be used to monitor internal organs in real time or to stimulate individual nerves to treat disorders such as epilepsy.
