Implantable optoelectronic systems for neuroscience research (Conference Presentation)
Author(s): John A. Rogers

Paper Abstract

Advanced optoelectronic systems that intimately integrate with the brain and the peripheral nervous system have the potential to accelerate progress in neuroscience research and to spawn new therapies in clinical medicine. Specifically, capabilities for injecting electronics, light sources, photodetectors, multiplexed sensors, programmable microfluidic networks and other components into precise locations of the deep brain and for softly laminating them onto targeted regions of the surfaces of the brain or the peripheral nerves will open up unique and important opportunities in stimulation, inhibition and real-time monitoring of neural circuits. In this talk, we will describe foundational concepts in materials science and assembly processes for these types of technologies.
