Researchers are blurring the distinction between brain and machine, designing nanoelectronics that look, interact, and feel like real neurons. Camouflaged in the brain, this neurotechnology could offer a better way to treat neurodenerative diseases or control prosthetics, interface with computers or even enhance cognitive abilities.
Electrodes implanted in the brain help alleviate symptoms like the intrusive tremors associated with Parkinson's disease but current probes face limitations due to their size and inflexibility. In a recent paper titled "Precision Electronic Medicine," published in Nature Biotechnology, Shaun Patel, a faculty member at the Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital, and Charles M. Lieber, the Joshua and Beth Friedman University Professor, argue that neurotechnology is on the cusp of a major renaissance. Throughout history, the most successful scientists have dimmed discipline lines to tackle problems larger than their individual fields.
