Today the Royal Society has publish it's 'iHuman perspective: Neural Interfaces Report'. The Steering Group Co-Chaired by our very own Dr Tim Constandinou looked into possible applications of neural and brain-computer interfaces, exploring the potential benefits and risks of the technologies and setting out a course towards maximising the former and minimising the latter.
With the use of Memristors the neural interface technology is becoming miniaturised and more powerful, leading to more and more possibilities, including Stroke rehabilitation and even replacing some medical prescriptions. Read the report here.
Dr Constandinou was also asked onto BBC Radio 4's Today Programme, to give his expert opinion. You can hear him from 1:17:50 here.
