The neurostimulator implant envisaged by researcher John Pezaris, is not the same as the medical neurostimulators currently in use. It is one of the first true neurostimulators. That is to say, not a general pulse device, but one capable of delivering meaningful data directly into the brain.
An introduction to the concept of third party AI engines, and a look at the capabilities of AI.implant, which basically turns characters into autonomous agents, capable of making their own, independent decisions.
We finally understand enough about the way sound signals are processed into electrical signals, to go one better than the cochlea implant. We can tap directly into the auditory nerve itself.
BrainGate. By now, its become almost a household name in neuralscience. This short news snippet from November 2003 is part of a series, chronicling the development of this direct interface system.
It is certainly an odd idea, but a rather effective one: Power a medical implant, with the beats of whatever song you happen to be listening to at the time. That in a nutshell is what Purdue university researchers have done with their latest prototype sensing device.
This dentistry prosthetics tome is an attempt to bring the latest in research, diagnostic tools, treatment planning, implant designs, materials, and techniques for prosthetising the mouth, to the attention of practitioners, and support staff. It is also a healthy read for anyone working on tooth prosthesis, or who has considerable use of such.

A new neuroprosthetic on the market at the end of 2009, is an attempt to actually combiine a neural activity detector and a neurostimulator into one package. Traditionally this never worked because oncethe neurostimulator activates, it blocks out all underlying brain activity in the area - the implant is only reading itself. But, what if that is the desired outcome?
A new prototype wireless drug delivery implant, including a new prototype medical implant control protocol, has completed a first round of human trials in Denmark, showing great promise for drug delivery via telehealth.
The brain is of profound importance. It is the place that houses our sense of self, our mind. It contains all of who and what we are. As technologies advance, Brain-Machine interfaces will become more and more sophisticated, and our understanding of the brain's functions will become ever-greater.
