I'm sorry if I'm slow but I don't understand how OpenWater's device can "write" neural activity. I understand how her device works when it comes to "reading" neural activity. It's still unclear to me.

 

Does it require genetically modified cells? so that they can be light-sensitive (optogenetics)?

 

I don't believe it requires genetically modified cells. As far as I know if you heat up the brain cell membrane (with infrared and/or ultrasonic) it will fire, no GM required. I have no idea as to what resolution they expect to hit.

Thanks for the reply.

That's sounds simple enough. Hope I can get my hands on the developer kits.

I heard her say it can read and write voxel for voxel. But didn't really state as to how many neurons it can simultaneously read and write. Would be interesting to know.
