Cut the Cord in Neural Implants That Control Prostheses: Here’s How

The current generation of neural implants record enormous amounts of neural activity, then transmit these brain signals through wires to a computer. But, so far, when researchers have tried to create wireless brain-computer interfaces to do this, it took so much power to transmit the data that the implants generated too much heat to be safe for the patient. Stanford researchers suggest how to solve his problem — and thus cut the wires.
