1. Neural Sensing and Microelectrodes

For years the Neural sensing and stimulation was the mainstay of neuroscience research, brain - computer interactions and therapeutic clinical neuromodulation applications. The traditional systems used for neural stimulation have to depend on on sharp metal microelectrodes with meagre electrochemical properties that leads to widespread tissue injury and suggestively worsen the long-standing steadiness of implants [1]. There is substantial growth in the frame of information regarding the human brain. Several queries are still unreciprocated. For decades, scientists have been using electrodes to record the brain's electrical activity mapping in various regions of brain to comprehend its functions. The disadvantage of such electrode arrays is that they are able to perceive the activity over a certain threshold frequency.

2. Graphene Implants

The Graphene Flagship has designed a newer technology called the graphene implants that overcomes all the technical limitations, answering the means of data found frequency lesser than 0.1 Hz, which forms the basic design for future brain-computer interfaces.

3. What’s New About Graphene Implants?

Instead of transmitting the signals to a receiver. The graphene implants- the advanced transistor-based architecture amplifies the signals from the brain. This technology moves away from the usage of electrodes. Than the usage of a standard electrode array, the graphene implants helps to support many more recording sites as it is thin and stretchy, so that it can be used cortex regions without the fear of rejection or interference with normal functioning of the brain. This helps in an unparalleled plotting of the brain activity in lesser frequencies which transmits vital data regarding the proceedings in the brain for instance; the onset and progression of stroke and seizures. The neurologists thus have access to the minute clues that our brains only whisper. This revolutionary technology may alter the way of recording and viewing the electrical activity of our brain.
