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.

People can share thoughts or ideas to facilitate 'idea sex' to make the field of brain implants a smaller and more personal space.

Dr. Chad Bouton is an award-winning researcher who was recently able to bypass the damaged area of a paralyzed patient to allow him to play Guitar Hero again. Complex movements like this require intricate control of the fingers which have not been possible in the past. We also talk about the methods used by his team in order to embrace glial scarring and instead of listening to neurons at a farther range. In this way, it is possible to pick up many more neurons per electrode and get more information.
