Surgical Implant Gives Battery-free Electrical Stimulation to the Brain

A sample of Rice University's 'magnetoelectric' film atop a bed of uncooked rice. Rice neuroengineers created the bi-layered film to power implantable neural stimulators that are approximately the size of a grain of rice. The film converts energy from a magnetic field directly into an electrical voltage, eliminating the need for a battery or wired power connection. Credit: Jeff Fitlow/Rice University
