Brain-Computer Startup Aims to Treat Depression Without Opening a Skull
Publication/Creation DateMarch 30 2022
Description"Inner Cosmos calls its system a digital pill. The idea is that tiny pulses of electricity will normalize the connections among neurons and improve people’s moods. The implant, the size of two stacked pennies, will at first interact with the brain’s cognitive control network and perhaps more parts in the future. Once a day for about 15 minutes, the patient activates the system by placing a second device, a magnetic power pod, on top of the area with the implant. Then the implant sends pulses into the brain as the system measures neuronal activity emitting from the brain in order to gauge the correct amount of stimulation."
Meron Gribetz, co-founder of Inner Cosmos, also founded former augmented reality start-up Meta Company.
