Scalable Technologies for High Bandwidth Neural Interfacing


High-bandwidth neural interfaces seek to establish a long-lived information channel between the electrical activity of large numbers of neurons (ranging from thousands to as many as millions) in highly parallel nervous systems and the predominantly serial, human-made electronics. This thesis has explored the possibility of designing one such device using readily available off-the-shelf components and low-cost microfabrication processes while choosing those technologies that maximize scalability (i.e. more interfaced neurons while shrinking the device size) following future investments into more advanced lithography techniques.
