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.

Paul Meadows is one of the founding members of IFESS and a  veteran in the neurotech industry. He is currently the Chief Technology Officer at Imthera in the development of neurostimulation device for obstructive sleep apnea. The company was recently acquired by LivaNova. Previous Meadows was involved with neurotech development at Advanced Bionics as well as the Alfred E. Mann Foundation.

1. Current technology transfer developments are influenced by peer-reviewed published research.
2. Learn from the past so we don’t repeat in the future, applies to neurotech applications.
3. We still have technology challenges in such areas as cybersecurity and battery technology as well as systemic in clinical technology adoption.
