Scientists from Korea and the United States have developed a device (brain implant) that controls the nerve chains through a program in a smartphone, Science Daily writes. This can be a real salvation for people with parkinsonism, Alzheimer's, addictions, depression, and chronic pain.
The implant has replaceable drug cartridges and a light element. With its help, it is possible to carry out a long-term effect on neurons, even changing the behavior of an individual. The implant does not restrict movement due to its compact size, has a reduced risk of complications. He was successfully tested on rodents.
The implant is controlled through a simple mobile application. With him, it was possible to achieve a clear effect of drugs and light on rodent neurons, influencing through a wireless channel. This is a real breakthrough in neurology, developers say.
