The project is an advanced study to create ultra-compliant thin-film transverse intrafascicular multichannel electrodes that interface locally and intimately to fascicles in the peripheral nervous system PNS, specifically targeting the human vagus nerve. The final goal is to provide a coupled design and fabrication technology for PNS multi-probe arrays that supports both recording and stimulation, is selective to specific fascicles, is scalable in electrode count and location to cover the entire cross section of major branches of the vagus nerve, has low invasiveness after insertion relative to competing intrafascicular probes, and whose functionality is validated through in vitro and ex vivo testing.
