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

One of the coolest demonstrations during SfN in November 2017 was that of Actuated Medical. Ryan Clement was kind enough to sit down with me to talk about some of the amazing reductions their company is able to deliver using ultrasound vibrations. They are able to insert the implants using about half the force and preventing dimpleing as well. This means that the electrode goes exactly how deep you want it to without having a pin cushion effect.
