Closed-loop brain prosthesis (2009-2011)

ReNaChip being demonstrated at Future and Emerging Technologies Exhibition, Budapest, 2011 The aim of the ReNaChip project was to create a chip which could be implanted in a brain replacing one function of the brain in performing a learning task. The chip I designed takes neural signals amplified from electrodes, processes them to detect events, and then implements a model of cerebellar classical conditioning. It does this by means of a field-programmable array of mixed-signal components specialised for neural signal processing and neural modelling. My interest in field-programmable circuitry was enhanced by a brief contract at Edinburgh University on a project to create a related design specialised for neuromorphic applications. The ReNaChip was used to rehabilitate eyeblink conditioning in an anaesthetised rat.
