DARPA Seeks Info on Non-Invasive Neural Interfaces

1 min read

DARPAThe Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is seeking information on non-invasive neurotechnology systems for use in studies that involve single neural activity sensing on an ambulatory human.

DARPA’s biological technologies office issued a request for information on August 13 to solicit from various communities new ideas on neuroscience capabilities other than electroencephalogram, functional near infrared spectroscopy, functional magnetic resonance imaging and magnetoencephalography.

DARPA is interested in methodologies to capture neuronal signals from mechanical, thermal, electrical, magnetic, acoustic, optical, chemical and other domains.

While the focus of the RFI is on non-invasive strategies, the agency also seeks approaches to measure central neural pathway signals through ingestible routes.

Interested parties must demonstrate how to measure a single neuron activity from cortical and deep brain structures and to consolidate single neuron firing patterns.
