This device is implanted into the brain in a unique way:

Previously, patients had to endure open brain surgery in order to connect their brains to machines . Surgeons would have to perform a craniotomy to open the skull and implant electrode arrays into particular regions of the brain. Now, the Australian team is delivering implants to the brain with a simple stent, a minimally invasive procedure involving a simple catheter being inserted into a blood vessel. Traditionally, a stent is used to treat damaged arteries, but in this case it becomes a door to the brain. After placing the small stentrode into a blood vessel in the neck, the researchers use real-time imaging to guide it to a precise location in the brain. Then the stentrode expands and attaches to the walls of the blood vessel, where it can read the activity of nearby neurons. Doug Weber, the program manager for RE-NET said:
