This podcast's purpose is to bring together the field of neuroprosthetics / brain machine interfaces / brain implants in an understandable conversation about the current topics and breakthroughs. We hope to replace needing to read scientific papers on new research in an easy to digest way. Then people can share thoughts or ideas to facilitate 'idea sex' to make the field of brain implants a smaller and more personal space

Dr. Maria Asplund is a researcher in Freiburg, Germany who works mainly in PEDOT. She talks about the benefits of PEDOT as a coating for neural implants. It allows for functionalization of the surface as well as a better connection to brain cells. It has a porous surface as well as good conductance which means that you have a better signal. We then talk about the differences with carbon nanotube electrodes and the benefits of both.
