MIT News – Engineering on the brain

MIT News

Learn about the birth of a new field – called neurotechnology – which some believe is in its infancy and will spawn enormous companies and rival the size and scope of the existing biotechnology industry.  “There’s not a lot of precedent for neurotechnology entrepreneurship,” says Dr. Ed Boyden from MIT. “That’s part of the fun, because there isn’t a cookbook to follow.”

Boyden and Bonsen believe that neurotechnology is poised to take off, much as biotechnology was two decades ago. “We haven’t yet seen the founding of the Biogen or Genzyme of the neurotech field,” Bonsen says. “But I fully suspect that analogs to those companies are being born or blossoming now.”

The Scientist – Brains in Action: Worms, Fish, Flies, and Mice


The Scientist explores the latest technology that researchers are using for brain monitoring in four organisms: worms, fish, flies, and mice. Specifically, automated whole-cell patch clamping is highlighted, which could serve as the foundation for the execution of high-throughput experiments—recording from hundreds of neurons, or even dozens of animals, in real time.
