Small Plastic Chip in Body Can Ease Chronic Pain

Two researchers from Sweden's Linköping University - Magnus Berggren, professor of organic electronics, and Klas Tybrandt, postdoctoral student at the Laboratory of Organic Electronics - have developed chemical chips that can control the signals of cells. The technology could be life-changing for people with Parkinson's, epilepsy, and chronic pain. The researchers have built integrated chips that contain several chemical transistors, and believe that in the future they can create a thousand transistors on one chip.
