Researchers at the University of California San Diego have developed a brain implant that sits on the surface while providing information about neural activity deep within the brain. The technology, tested in transgenic mice, brings the researchers a step closer to building a minimally invasive brain-computer interface (BCI) that will provide high-resolution data about deep neural activity by recording from the brain surface.
