Brain sensors record electrical signals directly from surface of the human brain

A new array of brain sensors can record electrical signals directly from the surface of the human brain in record-breaking detail. These sensors feature thin, flexible and densely packed grids of either 1,024 or 2,048 embedded electrocorticography sensors.

[Research supported by U.S. National Science Foundation grants CMMI 1728497 and ECCS 1351980.]
