Tools to measure and stimulate activity in brain tissue and their applications
Co-organized with CNR-IMM and ISS

Medical devices to measure and stimulate brain activity are emerging as tremendously powerful therapeutic tools that could revolutionise the treatment of brain diseases. Anomalous neuronal electrical signals are present in a wide range of disorders including memory impairment (Alzheimer’s), epilepsy, chronic pain, mood disorders, movement disorders (Parkinson’s), ischemic cognitive decline (post-heart attack), sensory disorders (hearing loss, tinnitus), cerebrovascular events, aging related neurodegeneration, traumatic brain injury amongst many others. Unfortunately, existing devices to restore normal patterns of brain activity by stimulation have serious limitations, including invasiveness, limited miniaturisation, poor resolution and limited spatial coverage.

Microelectronics and microfabrication have been recently enabled the development of novel neuro-devices with high levels of miniaturisation, ultra-low power consumption, multi-site sensor/stimulator arrays (linear, planar or 3D with a wealth of geometries) and wireless architectures, leading to lower risk, shorter recovery times and better patient acceptance. The workshop aims to present the state-of-the art in this field, which has been recognized as one of the Challenges of EIC Pathfinder actions.
