Bio Electrodes In The News: Breakthrough for electrode implants in the brain

Breakthrough for electrode implants in the brain


For nearly nine years, researchers at Lund University have been working on developing implantable electrodes that can capture signals from single neurons in the brain over a long period of time – without causing brain tissue damage.

Future Motion Sickness Treatments Would Involve Attaching Electrodes To The Scalp

A mild electrical current applied to the scalp can dampen the brain’s responses and so prevent motion sickness: study. Imperial College London

A mild electrical current applied to the scalp can supress the brain’s responses when processing motion signals,

Bioelectrodes function as an interface between biological structures and electronic systems.  Electrical activity within the biological structure is either sensed or stimulated.  The electrical systems are either passively sensing (measuring) or actively stimulating (inducing) electrical potentials within the biological structure or unit.

What Is A Silver Chloride Electrode?

Let’s start by defining some terms here.

An Electrode is a device used to connect the metal part of a circuit to the nonmetallic part of a circuit — most often liquid, vacuum, or semiconductor.

A Reference Electrode is an electrode that has a specific, known amount of electrode potential — that is to say,

EEG Sensors Can Help You Recover From Addiction

Despite society’s depreciation of addicts, addiction is a disease, not a life choice. It’s a disease that originates in the brain. Yes, in almost all cases, the initial dose of the addictive substance is taken voluntarily — which is something that society can legitimately criticize. But once the addiction has arisen, it’s important to understand that the addict’s conscious control has been interrupted.

EEG Electrodes, Biofeedback, And The Death of Ritalin

Ritalin continues to be one of the most over-prescribed drugs in US history, with diagnoses of ADD and ADHD coming down the line for every four-year-old that would rather run around the classroom than sit still for snacktime. Fortunately, with each passing year, more and more parents are turning away from the thought of drugging their children — and turning toward an option that has neither side effects nor a cost that will go on for the rest of your child’s life.
