Conference

Lecture Series Freiburg "Interfacing with the brain using organic electronics"

December 16 - 6, 2020

Freiburg (Visio) (Germany)

PROGRAM

in the framework of the NEUROSCIENCE & NEUROTECHNOLOGY LECTURE SERIES

 

Georges Malliaras - University of Cambridge, UK 

One of the most important scientific and technological frontiers of our time is the interfacing of electronics with the human brain. This endeavour promises to help understand how the brain works and deliver new tools for diagnosis and treatment of pathologies including epilepsy and Parkinson’s disease. Current solutions, however, are limited by the materials that are brought in contact with the tissue and transduce signals across the biotic/abiotic interface. Recent advances in organic electronics have made available materials with a unique combination of attractive properties, including mechanical flexibility, mixed ionic/electronic conduction, enhanced biocompatibility, and capability for drug delivery. I will present examples of novel devices for recording and stimulation of neurons and show that organic electronic materials offer tremendous opportunities to study the brain and treat its pathologies.
