We are designing cell-powered chips that will be placed inside brains of freely moving animals to record their neural activity and send signals. The applications of communicating high-resolution information from large ensembles of neurons that encode memories and perceptions in brain are enormous. Our applications are learning and memory mechanisms in addiction research.
Our goal is to develop a neural recording system technology that can be scaled up to record millions of neurons during behavior. Our initial application will be learning and memory mechanisms in addiction research. Our current specific aim is to develop and manufacture this at Galiana Technologies. Future plans include progressive scaling of the circuitry. The applications of communicating high-resolution information from large neuronal ensembles that encode memories and perceptions in brain are
