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.

Kunal Ghosh is the founder and CEO of Inscopix which uses imaging tools to understand the brain in both health and disease. 


Top Three Takeaways:

  • Miniscopes were invented out of a need for tools that have the ability to monitor and record large-scale neural circuit activity
  • Imaging tools have the advantage of scale, single-cell resolution, longitudinal recording capabilities, and labelling for specific cell types
  • Inscopix technology has enabled over 150 scientific papers


0:45 "Do you wanna introduce yourself a little bit?" 

5:00 "Why you did choose an imaging technique instead of, something else?"

12:00 "How did you since you started with the research and then leave academia, go into industry, and create this company. How did you do that?"

17:15 "Are you guys partnering with these big pharmaceutical companies or more on the FDA side?"

22:30 "What is the role of this circuit dysregulation almost like fingerprints of the, of these deviations from the norm. Is this something that you can visualize even predict before it happens?"

27:15 "How does it work with sifting through enormous amounts of data?"

32:45 "What are you excited about now?"
