From Neuroscience to Neurotechnology

The Future of Neurotechnology. ‘Neurotechnology expert Zack Lynch explains the new field and tells us what the future holds for treating brain disorders. Despite huge leaps in our understanding of the inner workings of the brain, many of the most popular therapies for psychiatric and neurological disorders are just new versions of older drugs. Now experts say new technologies, such as electrical stimulators, could revolutionize the treatment of brain disorders. Scientists hope that within the next 5 to 20 years, these technologies will deliver some of the most sought-after breakthroughs in neuroscience, such as a truly effective treatment for Alzheimer’s disease or an alternative therapy for the large percentage of patients resistant to antidepressant drugs.’
