Could Brain Chips Lead to Next Biotech Industry Leader? Special Report by Leading Financial Site Penny Stock Detectives(June 12, 2012)
New York, NY (PRWEB) June 12, 2012
In a recent Penny Stock Detectives article, editor Danny Esposito agues brain chips are a truly exciting area of research that could eventually lead to commercial products from either biotech companies or big pharma. Esposito expects brain chips to not only improve the lives of people with debilitating diseases, but also to make some big pharma or biotech company a leader of its industry.
One paralyzed patient, from the neck down, had a pill-sized brain chip attached to the surface of her brain, describes Esposito. From this brain chip, 96 hair-like electrodes extended outward to attach themselves to the motor cortex of her brain.
Her impulses to move were sent from the electrodes to the brain chip and relayed to a computer, which then transmitted the information to a robotic arm. The arm picked up a coffee mug and brought it close enough to her face that she could drink her coffee from a straw.
The goal for biotech companies is to eventually have the patients use their own arms and legs with the aid of a brain chip. Even if robotic arms and legs are used in the meantime, Esposito notes, the devices provide some mobility for quadriplegics, which was not possible before this technology.
According to the Penny Stock Detectives article, in June of this year, one similar type of brain chip being used at the research level to help those with impaired to no vision to see could lead to the creation of new biotech companies.
This type of brain chip, attached to the back of the brain, sends signals wirelessly to a pair of glasses the patient wears, describes Esposito.
The glasses are equipped with a video camera that records the environment the patient is in. Next, the images are sent wirelessly to the brain chip, which transmits the information to the visual cortex of the brain. This allows the subject to see a low-resolution picture of his/her environment.
The challenge for biotech companies is to create high-resolution images so that persons with poor or no vision can actually read and feel more comfortable and confident about their surroundings.
Brain chips have the potential to benefit the lives of thousands of people who have impaired senses, limited mobility, or other disabilities that might currently present a barrier.
Needless to say, notes Esposito, those biotech companies that can perfect the science and translate the potential to commercial products will be the big winners in financial terms.
