Using piezoelectric nanoparticles to provide deep brain stimulation

AI nuclear energy background, future innovation of disruptive technology

A team of researchers at Pohang University of Science and Technology, in the Republic of Korea, working with a colleague from the Georgia Institute of Technology in the U.S. has developed a method for deep brain stimulation without surgery. In their paper, published in the journal Nature Biomedical Engineering, the group describes passing piezoelectric nanoparticles through the blood–brain barrier (BBB) and using bursts of ultrasound to make them produce pulses of electricity.
