A “neural bridge” implanted in the brain serves to detect and eliminate feelings of pain in real-time.

Scientists at the New York University School of Medicine have developed a brain implant that activates when pain occurs and relieves it. 

It is noted that the device connects two areas of the brain and serves to detect and eliminate the feeling of pain in real-time. 

In fact, the mechanism is a team of “spies and sleeping agents”. The spy analyzes the electrical signals in the pain-processing area of ​​the brain and decodes them. 

When a pain signal is detected, the information is sent to a “sleeping agent” – a computer chip implanted in the front of the brain. 

The chip, in turn, fires a stimulating light beam that activates pain-suppressing neurons. 

As the researchers emphasized, a particular advantage of the interface is that it is activated only when needed and does not constantly affect the brain. 

At the moment, the device has been tested on rats. 

“Our findings show that this implant offers an effective strategy for pain therapy, even in cases where symptoms are traditionally difficult to pinpoint or manage,” the authors of the development noted.
