Types of Invasive Neurotechnology Devices

This module covers many types of invasive neurotechnology devices/interfaces for the central and peripheral nervous systems. Invasive neurotech devices are really important as they often provide the greatest accuracy and long-term use applicability.

Topics covered in this lesson
  • For the central nervous system: 
    • Electrocorticography (ECoG)
    • Microelectrode Arrays (MEAs)
    • Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS).
  • For the peripheral nervous system:
    • Epineurial and extraneural interfaces
    • Penetrating interfaces
    • Regenerative interfaces
    • Hybrid interfaces
