One of the grand challenges in neural engineering is the lack of reliable low-power miniaturized wireless telemetry. Wires affect behavior and fundamentally alter measurements. Wireless capability doesn’t broadly exist today for wide neuroscience community, at rates and channel counts needed, compromising scientific discovery and therapeutic outcomes. Biosignal transducer systems require not just sensing, but also actuation, and closed-loop control. This talk will address above challenges, starting with devices for translational animal studies, including LFP wireless monitoring of mTBI rats, initial work towards energy-autonomous body-powered systems, temporal and spatial compression of single-unit data. Findings from animal studies provide critical insight into the design of heavily size- and energy-constrained wireless neural telemetry systems, leading into the development of closed-loop neuromodulation devices, initially focused on human memory restoration.
