Brain-wide Interaction Neurological and psychiatric disorders reflect imbalances in networks distributed across the brain. Forest is developing a minimally-invasive implant capable of measuring and modulating brain-wide activity. As a result, this technology will unlock personalized understanding and treatment of the human brain.
with Neural Circuits
Minimally-invasive Ultrasound ImplantNeuroimaging and modulation throughout the brain is possible thanks to advances in ultrasound transducers and miniaturized electronics integrated into a single microchip. Powered by Butterfly Network’s Ultrasound-on-Chip Technology, Forest’s minimally-invasive implant will measure brain-wide function and continuously update therapeutics for many indications.
Forest Neurotech is a Focused Research Organization, a new type of large scale, non-profit startup.
