12 Aug 10, 2010: Canadian Team Develops Neurochip
Though incapable of any sort of calculations or other tasks normally associated with computer chips, the neurochip
should give researchers a better understanding of how neural networks grow and adapt.
Then the scientists plan to record communication among the selected nerve cells, and perhaps even put the neurochip into an animal's nervous system so that the "wired" cells establish connections with the intact brain.
Pine also suggests that neurochips may be used to control artificial limbs.
Before application to the MEA neurochip chamber or 12-well chamber, the NPs were dispersed by ultrasound sonification and vortexed.
The in vitro MEA neurochip model system lacks the BBB, and it does not take into consideration the bioavailability of compounds.
The data reveal successful operation of the chip and demonstrate that Infineon's neurochip
is capable of providing exciting new insights in the field of neurosciences.
1363) investigated acute electrophysiological effects of carbon black, hematite, and titanium dioxide NPs in primary murine cortical networks on micro-electrode array (MEA) neurochips
In the second, several alternatives and technologies of implementation can be chosen for the neuronal accomplishment of chips, like digital, analog or hybrid neurochips.
In order to obtain implementations on great scale, several neurochips must be interconnected to create systems of greater complexity, with advanced communication protocols.
GeneLogic spin-off MetriGenix partnered with Neuralstem to develop and market stem cell based neurochips
a newly formed biotechnology company, today announced plans to jointly develop and market a series of neurochips
as low-density, theme-based oligonucleotide microarrays based on MetriGenix's Flow-thru Chip(TM) technology.
