Implantable Biomimetic Electronics as Neural Prostheses

Toward Replacement Parts for the Brain

Implantable Biomimetic Electronics as Neural Prostheses
Edited by Theodore W. Berger and Dennis L. Glanzman
Published June 2005 ISBN 0-262-02577-9

The continuing development of implantable neural prostheses signals a new era in bioengineering and neuroscience research.

This collection of essays outlines current advances in research on the intracranial implantation of devices that can communicate with the brain in order to restore sensory, motor, or cognitive functions.

The contributors explore the creation of biologically realistic mathematical models of brain function, the production of microchips that incorporate those models, and the integration of microchip and brain function through neuron-silicon interfaces.

Recent developments in understanding the computational and cognitive properties of the brain and rapid advances in biomedical and computer engineering both contribute to this cutting-edge research.
