Injectable Nanowire mesh to stimulate and study neuron activity

“Syringe-injectable electronics” a paper published in nature nanotechnology describes a new technique that allow scientists to introduce a nanoparticle mesh into the brain.

The structure could allow not only to register, transmit and record neural activity but also eventually be used to stimulate neurons with a precision beyond our current skills.   It’s low degree of invasiveness and rejection makes the possibility of applying such studies in normal, functional beings during usual activities.
