Neurograins: a wireless network ON your brain

A team of researchers from Brown, Baylor University, University of California at San Diego and Qualcomm has been working in the past four years on a new approach to interface with the brain. So far BCIs make use of electrodes (implanted, or positioned inside/outside the skull) that can sense electrical …
