On this episode…

Instead of implanting ready-made electronics into the body, Swedish researchers went a completely different route: they’re growing what they need inside the brain. Injecting a gel filled with enzymes directly into a specific area, the method allows the soft material to combine with biological tissue to grow electrodes for future medical use.

This newfound method for getting electrodes into biological tissue introduces fresh options for repairing nerve functions, and potentially provides a sweeping opportunity to treat diseases.
