Title: Brain recording and stimulation with the Stentrode

Abstract: Neural interfaces have the potential to restore lost motor or sensory function and alleviate neurological symptoms for people with spinal cord injury, motor neurone disease [, etc], limb amputation, Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy and potentially other conditions. However, to provide the best level of performance, these systems have so far required direct implantation of electrodes into the brain via open craniotomy. We have developed a stent-electrode array, called the “Stentrode”, that is placed within a blood vessel in the brain where they can chronically record and stimulate brain activity. This presentation will describe the development of the Stentrode from idea to first-in-human trials.
