Title
(EN) NEURAL PROSTHETICS USING A CHEMICAL HARVESTING AND STIMULATION DEVICE
(FR) PROTHÈSES NEURONALES UTILISANT UN DISPOSITIF DE RÉCOLTE ET DE STIMULATION CHIMIQUE
Abstract
(EN) A neural prosthetic device is provided that includes one or more ion-selective membranes enabling electrically-controlled local modulation of ion concentrations around a nerve so as to achieve different excitability states of the nerve for electrical stimulation or inhibition of nerve signal propagation.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un dispositif prothétique neuronal qui comprend une ou plusieurs membranes sélectives d'ions permettant une modulation locale commandée électriquement de concentrations d'ions autour d'un nerf de façon à parvenir à différents états d'excitabilité d'un nerf pour une stimulation ou une inhibition électrique d'une propagation de signaux nerveux.
