The Kendall Research Wireless Router for Brains

By January 26, 2012

Follow me on:

Not for human brains (at least not yet), but the startup company in Cambridge, MA has developed prototype wireless devices that control brain cells of mice using pulses of light. The devices get their power from a wireless charger and are designed to induce movement or other physical behavior changes in the mice. While these gadgets don't yet have the capability to collect data from the subject's brain and relay that out to a receiver, this too is in the company's future plans.

Wow, that is a very promising future for man-kind. Since the year 1999 I’d been wanting to know more on these cerebral cortex data transfers.
Q: What would it take for a promising researcher to join the crew in MA with real scientists to further studies of this evolutionary accomplishment…?
