Exploration of the brain is regarded as the final frontier in biological science. The capability to selectively and precisely modulate and detect neural activities with high spatiotemporal resolutions represents a powerful tool for neuroscience research and clinical therapeutics. Advanced materials, devices, algorithms and systems are being continually created, together with electrical, optical, thermal, magnetic, acoustic and chemical signals being utilized to create sophisticated brain-machine interfaces.
This special issue features reviews, perspectives and original research articles on the recent breakthroughs in advanced technologies for interrogating and detecting neural activities. We are particularly interested in but by no means limited to welcoming submission that addresses the following topics:
- Novel materials, devices, and circuit systems for brain-machine interfaces;
- Electrical, optical, thermal, magnetic, acoustic and chemical modalities to modulate and detect neural activities;
- Encoding and decoding algorithms for brain-machine interfaces;
- Novel approaches for neurological disease diagnostics and therapeutics;
- Submission deadline: 31 December 2023.
Please read the Guide for Authors before submitting. All articles should be submitted online. Please select Multimodal Technologies for Neural Modulation and Sensing as the article category on submission. All submissions will be subject to peer review.
