Iranian Scientist Develops Wireless implant for Brain Tissue Deformation study

Wednesday, November 25, 2015 - 00:35

An Iranian scientist has developed a new system which uses a wireless implant and shows how brain tissue deforms when subjected to the kind of blast-induced trauma commonly seen in combat veterans.

According to Iranian Students’ News Agency (ISNA), Babak Ziaie, professor at Purdue University's Department of Basic Medical Sciences, College of Veterinary Medicine, and Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering, developed a wireless system that shows how brain tissue deforms.

ISNA quotes Ziaie as stating that blast-induced traumatic brain injury is one of the most significant and prevalent types of injury throughout Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom. About 167,000 blast-induced traumatic brain injury cases have been documented during both deployments alone

“The new research involves the use of a biocompatible "soft magnet" wireless sensor, inserted into the brains of laboratory rats. Because the gel-like magnet has mechanical properties similar to that of brain tissue, it is able to move with the brain when exposed to blast trauma”, he explains.

Findings are detailed in a paper appearing on Friday (Nov. 20) in the journal Scientific Reports.
