How a versatile epoxy is enabling brain stimulation

In but another example of how useful and critical epoxies can be, researchers in Israel used a two-part epoxy to construct a magnetic coil to stimulate animal brain neurons via a magnetic field. Rohit Ramnath, Master Bond Designers of medical electronics assemblies have many options to choose from when selecting one or more compounds for

Brain implants last longer if they’re smaller: Here’s how

Massachusetts Institute of Technology researchers have recently suggested that if electrodes implanted in the brain were smaller, the devices could last much longer. Diseases like Parkinson’s disease can be treated with electrical stimulations from electrodes that have been implanted in the brain. Implanted electrodes, however, can cause scarring which can make the electrodes less effective

Non-invasive brain stimulation proven to improve memory

Scientists at Northwestern University have successfully used a non-invasive brain stimulation for the first time that can be used like a scalpel to make specific improvements in precise memory. Precise memory, for example, is used to recall specific colors, shapes and locations of buildings, versus just knowing the name of the town that the building is
