Engineers link brains to computers using 3D printed implants

Neuromuscular interfaces are required to translate bioelectronic technologies for application in clinical medicine. Here, by leveraging the robotically controlled ink-jet deposition of low-viscosity conductive inks, extrusion of insulating silicone pastes and in situ activation of electrode surfaces via cold-air plasma, we show that soft biocompatible materials can be rapidly printed for the on-demand prototyping of customized electrode arrays well adjusted to specific anatomical environments, functions and experimental models.

Natural Capital

A transformation framework for natural capital

So far human capital (workers and new ideas), “manufactured” (offices, factories and machinery) and financial capital (money) as determinants of our. A study argues, “natural capital” given in the environment (air, water, land, and energy) deserves similar attention for sustainable economies. The proposed framework facilitates political decision making including natural capital – see https://www.exeter.ac.uk/news/research/title_811683_en.html
