Electronics on the brain
Wednesday 23 September 2020, 12.30pm to 1.30pm BST
Interfacing microelectronics with the human brain will deliver new tools for the diagnosis and treatment of neurological disorders. Professor George Malliaras will show how recent advances in electronic materials are translated to devices that record and stimulate brain activity with unprecedented precision and provide new ways to minimise the invasiveness of neurosurgery.
