(Web Desk) – Dr. Naweed Syed who invented neuro/bionic chip is starting experiments on humans this year to cure the brain-related ailments like seziures and epilepsy according to online website.
Pakistani-Canadian scientist of the University of Calgary’s Hotchkiss Brain Institute has been working on these brain chips for quite few years now which gained a lot of attraction all over the world.
These chips help understand the interaction between human tissues and electronic devices.
Dr. Naweed Syed is testing these chips for the incurable brain ailments and function loss by implanting them inside the brain. It might hit the road to bionic robotics for future.
Dr. Naweed, the pioneer of brain cell activity reading chips, will undertake the experiments in the middle of this year. The hybrid, ultra-sensitive bionic chip will first serve as a diagnostic device for epileptic patients through numerous, unprecedented approaches.
The hybrid bionic chip is one of the three unique chips developed by Syed. It aims at detecting seizures in a way that’s never been done before.
Furthermore, after it’s implanted, the chip can not only detect seizures but also convey the signals wirelessly to a wearable pocket device. This can relieve the patients of a 30-foot cable, which is a part of the conventional procedure.
This chip is significant because it will be MR compatible and enable the surgeon to identify the location of the seizures, which is quite hard to achieve normally.
Although it took almost two decades of feverish experiments, deign, redesign, and observations, a two-way brain chip is finally ready for human trials.
Nevertheless, in the next step, the chip will not only detect seizures but also switch to a device that can subdue them. The human trials will begin in mid-2019 at the University of Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
When new technologies, inventions and even medications come on the market there is typically an altruistic look at what it can do. Little thought is given to the consequences and ramifications. Indeed in the midst of a pandemic some of the loudest voices of vaccine hesitation are coming from health care workers themselves. The say the vaccine was politicized, some say it was rushed and consequently the whole world is apart of testing a vaccine that has not undergone the typical 7 years required for a ‘sound’ clinical trail that evaluates the response of the body to the vaccine. What are the ethics involved in implanting humans with chips? Have we properly tested the risk and implications? What could be the consequences of not doing so? COVID 19 has brought clinical trails into warp speed literally in the midst of a history of pharmaceuticals consistently fined for not following clinical trial laws. How has COVID 19 changed the landscape of clinical trails. The United States has already surpassed the number of people who died in WWII in COVID deaths.
