Major depressive disorder: Brain signals as biomarkers for depression

UPSIDE explores the potential of non-invasive electroencephalography (EEG) as a neuroimaging technique to detect biomarkers for Major Depressive Disorder (MDD). EEG, measuring brain electrical activity through scalp electrodes, has gained attention for its ability to reveal patterns associated with depression. Abnormalities in alpha wave activity, alpha/beta ratio, frontal asymmetry, and

Hybrid neuroelectronics: towards a solution-centric way of thinking about complex problems in neurostimulation tools

Responsive neuromodulation offers hope for patients with neuropsychiatric disorders, but progress is hindered by a disconnect between traditional materials and modern technology. Brain signaling relies heavily on ion flux, not electron movement. Unfortunately, current neural signal acquisition materials, like noble metals, interact only with electrons, leading to ion accumulation at
