Neuroelectronic Device Process Development and Challenge



Jessie Zhang, Gymama Slaughter, Matthew Robinson, Joel Tyson


One of the major challenges of brain activity monitoring is to obtain high quality signals from the brain using metal electrodes. The probes consisting of metal electrodes have to be thin enough without damaging the tissue while maintaining good contact to enable the acquisition of high quality signals. In addition, simultaneously collecting multiple data from multiple brain depths and sites remain a huge challenge. In this paper, we will discuss the design, development and fabrication of a fully integrated neuroelectronic prototype device that overcomes these challenges and is capable of simultaneous measurement in multiple locations while maintaining good electrical continuity.
