Electrocorticography or ECoG, is a method of brain-computer interaction, in which a mesh of electrodes is placed like a veil, directly over the outside of the brain itself.

A grid of electrodes 2 millimetres in diameter and spaced 10 mm apart, record brainwave patterns with far more fidelity than those placed on the surface of the scalp.

Electrocorticography Grows Up
Electrocorticography or ECoG is a method of neural interface in which an electrode array, quite like a fine mesh, is draped over the upper surface of the brain directly, under the skull. A section of the skull is removed to allow the array to be fed in, then replaced. The result is near-identical to a high fidelity EEG that is under the skull and thus away from its pattern dampening properties.

ECoG, or electrocorticography is a method of brain-computer interaction, in which a mesh of electrodes is placed like a veil, directly over the outside of the brain itself. MicroEcog, as the name suggests, is an order of magnitude smaller, and much more permanent.

Large Image Display: The Stepford Wives: Merging Human and AI
This single frame taken from the 2004 film 'The Stepford Wives', shows the neuroprosthetic arrays used in The Stepford Wives, to control the brains of the wives. Obviously the placement here is wrong, to do what they do. Five ECoG ? electrocorticography ? arrays could not perform the functions of mind control demonstrated in the film, because they do not penetrate deeply into it. Thus they are symbolic of the science involved, rather than prescriptive.
