Title of Talk: Calculating the SAR to Power up an Implantable Neural Interface for Wireless Communications with Human Motor Cortex
Mario Alexandre Gazziro – Department of Computer Science – University of São Paulo
Abstract: This presentation will introduce the major project named “Implantable Neural Interface” developed by ICMC, IFSC and EESC from USP, UFABC, USF (University of South Florida-USA) and by Brazil Research Lab (BRL) from IBM, with the objective to provide a wireless brain-computer interface, allowing mankind a security access to the human motor cortex, with focus on SAR (Specific Absorption Rate) modeling. A SAR limit of 2W/kg averaged over any contiguous 10g head tissue was recommended by the Council of European Union for the general public. The results will show how many electrodes can be powered within an security level for the brain.
