Researchers Experiments on Brain Implants to Detect and Relieve Pain Instantly

New study experiments on brain implantation to instantly detect and relieve pain so that patients could feel less pain as compared to earlier.

The researchers from the New York University of Medicine experimented on brain implantation to detect and relieve normal human pain sensations. The experiment was based upon the neural technology and external brain stimulus.  Many people go through the lot of painful sensations and to overcome this pain-relieving stimulation is performed by brain implantation.

The scientists demonstrated that the brain implantation is effectively working on certain rodent models. Some of the human tests took place where paralyzed patients gained consciousness about touch and controlling computers. Technological advancement could be seen through the animal tests, such as monkeys playing pong or pigs broadcasting neural activity.

Recently, there is a development in the system to detect pain and relieve pain stimulation in two different areas of brain. This system is known as closed-loop brain-machine interference. A device consists of an electrode arrays that decodes and detects the pain signals, which are identified by the anterior cingulate cortex. The optogenetic system in the prelimbic region stimulates the pyramidal neurons in prefrontal cortex, which brain releases pain- relieving stimulus.

The research is under experiment and that is why it is not applied in real-time yet. Brain implantation could cause a physiological impact on the body, which is the only hurdle in the process. Researchers are deeply into research to overcome this hurdle and have its application in real-time to experience less pain stimulus.
