Blackrock Microsystems Launches Wireless Brain Research System

SALT LAKE CITY (Dec. 18, 2014)—Neuroscience research has gone wireless. Today, Blackrock Microsystems LLC announced that it has struck an agreement with Brown University to license and commercialize a wireless neural activity monitoring system that will liberate neuroscientists from the cumbersome wires and cables that have burdened their research for decades. The journal Neuron just published a paper on a wireless neurosensor from the Neuroengineering Laboratory at Brown, which significantly outperforms all other wireless sensors currently on the market. Related to that paper, senior author Arto Nurmikko commented, “This device enables new types of neuroscience experiments with vast amounts of brain data wirelessly and continuously streamed from brain microcircuits.”
