(SD2022-177 ) Flexible, insertable and transparent microelectrode array to detect interactions between different brain regions

Tech ID: 33395 / UC Case 2021-Z08-1


Researchers from UC San Diego's Neuroelectronics Lab invented an implantable brain electrode technology which allows recording interactions between different cortex regions or interactions of cortex with other subcortical structures. The technology is called Neuro‐FITM. Flexibility and transparency of Neuro‐ FITM allow integration of electrophysiological recordings with any optical imaging (such as high resolution multiphoton imaging) or stimulation technology (such as optogenetics).
