Biohybrid Electrodes

"Our biohybrid electrodes overcome the issue of immuno-rejection associated with higher resolution invasive neuromodulation techniques by decoupling the material properties of the penetrating and conductive components of the neural interface. We start by encapsulating cultured neurons from our patients inside our micro fabricated structures, which protect them during implantation and guide them to the target tissues after implantation, allowing the formation of new synapses. By electrically stimulating the encapsulated neurons we can deliver neurostimulation to the target tissues, modulating their behaviour for therapeutic effect."
