Introduction – The organs in a human body functions accordingly. To operate these functionalities, researchers have developed a device that aims at testing and prediction of various effects of chemical and biological agents, pharmaceutical drugs and diseases that works on the brain over a period of time. It does not require the animal or human subjects.
System – This device helps in the simulation of central nervous system that records variety of neural activities from multiple types of brain cells which is deposited and grown into the micro electrode arrays. This platform allows the understanding of method of connecting and interacting brain cells of a person by combating brain disorders. It helps in determining the effects on soldiers so that they can expose various biological and chemical weapons. It also helps in the development of antidotes that can counteract those effects.
Complexity – The most important step in terms of increasing device complexity helps in the movement of cells in right direction. This idea allows the device to create effect by putting several pharmaceutical and chemical drugs into the environmental platform that is exactly similar to the results in the human body. The recreation of several regions of brain allows the researchers to divide the chip into four distinct areas. It contains three sub regions and an external region that represents the cortex of the brain.
Features – The deposition of primary hippo-campal and cortical cells on to the electrodes allows the free communication over several regions. Also, there are professionals who helps in monitoring the cells with the action of potential patterns that includes the bursting of potential energy with the emission of cells when it is communicated. It also allows the interaction of various cells so that it can interact over time. This test has been performed successfully that inserts four-cells by proving different types of cells that could be used simultaneously.
Version – The broader version of emergence and existence of threats allows the researchers to study various networks that are formed among various regions of brain. It is obtained on time with the human relevancy and without the human and animal testing. This data is used in the prediction of human response that counter measures various viruses or pharmaceutical drugs that allows the professionals to determine certain types of neurons that are more susceptible to exposure.
