Making leaps and bounds in brain cell monitoring, the University of Calgary 'Neurochip' has been developed in a concerted effort with National Research Council Canada. It is essentially a microchip made out of a network of human brain cells.

Headed by Naweed Syed, the University of Calgary 'Neurochip' allows for the study of large groups of brain cells. Yet the future possibilities with this new technology are endless. As Engadget sees it, "This sort of advance could someday lead to neurochip implants for driving artificial limbs, treatments for strokes and brain trauma, and more."
