Neuroprosthetic Optimization


The Problem

Currently, neuroprosthetics rely on brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) to measure neural signals using electrodes within the skull, enabling optimal spatial resolution. However, these BCIs are introduced through invasive means, particularly craniotomies, which are often mentally and physically straining.


The Innovation

N4NO (pronounced "nano") entails the insertion of an extremely small type of BCI known as neural dust surrounded by polymeric micelles. Using non-invasive administration methods, this invention applies drug delivery mechanisms to deliver BCIs.


The N4NO neural dust will be injected using intrathecal administration, ensuring noninvasive delivery to the brain. As the neural dust travels to the brain, the surrounding polymeric micelle will dissolve, and the neural dust mote will wrap around a specific nerve to record neural signals that in turn enable prosthetic control.


Our Mission

We aspire to advance neuroprosthetic solutions with nanocarriers, avoiding invasive procedures and improving the lives of millions by bridging the gap between cognitive intentions and physical movement while prioritizing safety and enhancing the potential for recovery.
