Brain-implanted devices could lead to UW medical breakthroughs

University of Washington researchers are building connections between computers and human brains, and they’re spinning out young companies in the process.

In November 2016, Fred Foy went through experimental surgery to treat his tremors. The surgery involved implanting a device in his brain that quiets the symptoms with electrical stimulation and was performed by Neurological Surgery Assistant Professor Andrew Ko.  Read about the UW's innovative Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering, Mr. Foy's experience and more in The Seattle Times.
