This study reports a neurotechnology for selective epineural optogenetic neuromodulation of nociceptors and demonstrates that nociceptor activation drives both protective pain behavior and inflammation.
My contribution to this paper deals with the design and implementation of the mechanical and optical characterization setup to allow the evaluation of the optoelectronic properties of the implant.
A translational framework engineered to accelerate the deployment of microfabricated interfaces for translational research is proposed and applied to the soft neurotechnology called electronic dura mater, e‐dura
My contribution to this paper deals with the realization of a biomimetic multimodal platform that replicates surgical insertion in an anatomy‐based model applies physiological movement, emulates therapeutic use of the electrodes, and enables advanced validation and rapid optimization in vitro of the implants.
This study presents a microfabrication approach to pattern micrometer‐thick gallium films on large‐area silicone substrates. By engineering the surface coating and topography of silicone, thin and smooth liquid metal films can be deposited with controlled morphology and well‐defined electrical and mechanical properties. The gallium films can be used to produce precise, repeatable, and durable sensing devices.
My contribution to this study deals with the evaluation of the electrical properties of this new gallium-based technology, by assessing the sensor calibration procedure and its accuracy, by managing the acquisition, processing and displaying of such datas, and by linking them to the 3D virtual environment.
