Scientists from the Institute of Advanced Technology in South Korea have developed an implant to control the brain in real time.
The gadget is charged without wires, through a Bluetooth channel. It is noted that the device is made of soft and biologically compatible polymers, as well as LEDs, which affect the neurons. The study is published in the journal Nature Communications.
Such a system based on soft optoelectronics is controlled remotely through a smartphone. In addition, the development can deliver drugs directly to the brain. The system has already been successfully tested on laboratory rats.
