Abstract

Peripheral nerves, due to their small size and complex innervation to organs and complex physiology, pose particularly significant challenges towards interfacing electrodes and electronics to enable neuromodulation. Here, we present a review of the technology for building such interface, including recording and stimulating electrodes and low power electronics, as well as powering. Of particular advantage to building a miniature implanted device is a 'bidirectional' system that both senses from the nerves or surrogate organs and stimulates the nerves to affect the organ function. This review and presentation will cover a range of electrodes, electronics, wireless power and data schemes and system integration, and will end with some examples and applications.
