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.

In this interview with Dr Cindy Chestek of the University of Michigan, we talk about her projects ranging from neuroprosthetics for amputees all the way to Carbon Fiber implants on the order of 10 microns. We also talk about some of the disagreements that neuroscientists have versus the neuroprosthetics people have on signal fidelity versus high channel counts. She sees a split coming up in the field since devices can't be made to do both things.
