Brain-machine interfaces directly communicate between the brain and external devices. An effective trade-off between signal quality and safety required for successful clinical translation has yet to be achieved, and represents a great challenge for engineers, neuroscientists, and clinicians. The StentrodeTM, an endovascular neural interface that allows neural signals to be recorded from within a cortical vessel, has demonstrated feasibility with safety for up to six months in a large animal model. Easily-obtained electrophysiological signals to evaluate the effect of implant duration on recording performance are essential for ongoing evaluation of the device. In this work, we demonstrate tha..View full abstract
