Author(s): Taegyo Kim, Yinghui Zhong, Simon F. Giszter
Precise Tubular Braid Structures of Ultrafine Microwires as Neural Probes: Significantly Reduced Chronic Immune Response and Greater Local Neural Survival in Rat Cortex 735 480 Transactions on Neural Systems and Rehabilitation Engineering (TNSRE)

   Braided multi-electrode probes (BMEPs) for neural interfaces comprise ultrafine microwire bundles interwoven into tubular braids. BMEPs provide highly flexible probes and tethers, and an open lattice structure with up…

Suppression of Subthalamic Nucleus Activity by Micromagnetic Stimulation

Author(s): Seung Woo Lee, Shelley L. Fried
Suppression of Subthalamic Nucleus Activity by Micromagnetic Stimulation 556 235 Transactions on Neural Systems and Rehabilitation Engineering (TNSRE)

Abstract Magnetic stimulation delivered via 0.5-mm diameter coils was recently shown to activate retinal neurons; the small coil size raises the possibility that micromagnetic stimulation (μMS) could underlie a new…
