DAEJEON, Dec. 9 (Korea Bizwire) — A new wireless network technology has been developed that uses the Internet to control brain neural circuits remotely.
A research team from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) said Wednesday it had developed an internet-of-things (IoT)-based brain neural circuit remote control system in collaboration with research teams from Washington University in St. Louis and the University of Colorado Boulder.
The invention is basically a wireless network system that uses IoT technology to control various brain transplant devices through the Internet on a remote basis, as well as to make such devices automatically operate based on pre-arranged schedules.
The system enables remote control of brain transplant devices or the collection of automated data through a wireless network platform, while making it easier for users to operate various functions such as brain circuit control scheduling.
In other words, a specific brain circuit of a target animal can be controlled remotely regardless of time and place.
In lab experiments on rats, the research team succeeded in adjusting the frequency of their social interactions with other rats, the amount of food consumption and the degree of activity.
Most neural science equipment that has been used for existing brain research required wires to be connected with external equipment.
