The Center’s research on using magnetoelectric nanoparticles (MENs) to enable wireless deep-brain stimulation has landed on a list of Discover magazine’s top 100 science stories of 2015. A groundbreaking nanotechnology procedure directed by the FIU team has earned spot no. 48 on a comprehensive listing that covers fields from space exploration to medicine, technology, paleontology and environment.  The study conducted on mice has for the first time proven that multifunctional nanoparticles allow to externally connect to the complex electric circuitry in the brain and thus open many new possibilities to treat neurological diseases and disorders such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s Disease, Autism, and many others as well as pave a way to reverse-engineering the brain.
