An experimental chip that could one day provide therapeutic deep brain stimulation (DBS) for drug resistant epilepsy and other conditions has been developed by Tel Aviv University researchers.

The Rehabilitation Nano Chip (ReNaChip) is implanted under the scalp and connects to DBS electodes implanted in the brain of animal models to rehabilitate motor-learning functions lost due to brain damage. The researchers hope that as chips become smaller, the ReNaChip could be etched right onto the electrodes themselves.
