In fact, it has been a long time since the brain and the machine realized direct communication. We call it brain computer interface (BCI). The application of biological prosthesis has become the most popular brain computer interface technology. This technology enables people to directly control the movement of prosthesis without muscle control. Devices using this technology can also replace lost hearing and vision.
In the 1970s, Dr. William dobelle implanted an experimental biocompatible electrode into the visual cortex of patients. When stimulated, the electrodes allow the patient to see a "pressure eye flash" or a light flash.
Since the late 1950s, cochlear implants have been used to treat sensorineural hearing loss. These devices convert sound into electrical signals that directly stimulate the cochlea and restore hearing. This brain computer interface technology has developed and improved steadily in the past 70 years.
Nano connector is the key component of brain computer interface. Its volume is shrinking and its function is increasing. It can help to develop brain computer interface which can directly connect with about 100 billion neurons in human brain.
If we have high-performance EEG caps and amplifiers and algorithms with high recognition accuracy, we can let EEG control screen cursors, artificial limbs, wheelchairs and even robots.
Considering that there are 100 billion neurons in the human brain, and this structure is in constant change, so the existing micron level electrode technology is not enough to achieve a comprehensive function. But in any case, the continuous innovation of microminiature connectors and cable assemblies is one of the technologies that have changed the world. Especially flexible medical electronic products will be better integrated into people's lives in the future.
