Chronically implanted recording electrode arrays linked to prosthetics have the potential to make positive impacts on patients suffering from full or partial paralysis. Such arrays are implanted into the patient's cortical tissue and record extracellular potentials from nearby neurons, allowing the information encoded by the neuronal discharges to control external devices. While such systems perform well during acute recordings, they often fail to function reliably in clinically relevant… Expand
Chronically Implanted Intracranial Electrodes: Tissue Reaction and Electrical Changes
TLDR
The tissue response to electrode implantation on acute and chronic timescales, the electrical changes that occur in electrode systems over time, and strategies that are being investigated in order to minimize the tissueresponse to implantation and maximize functional electrode longevity are discussed.

TLDR
Establishing how stimulation influences the electrical and histological properties of the surrounding tissue is critical in understanding how these factors contribute to DBS efficacy, and in controlling symptoms and side effects. Expand
Minimally invasive endovascular stent-electrode array for high-fidelity, chronic recordings of cortical neural activity
TLDR
The feasibility of chronically recording brain activity from within a vein using a passive stent-electrode recording array (stentrode) is demonstrated and neural recordings in freely moving sheep for up to 190 d are demonstrated. Expand

TLDR
Both tissue encapsulation and material degradation were more pronounced in the arrays that were implanted for a longer duration, and these arrays also had lower signal amplitude and impedance. Expand

Physiological Challenges for Intracortical Electrodes
TLDR
How the choice of device material and electrode-architecture influences the tissue reaction is discussed, as well as modifications that allow for less stiff implants, increase electrode conductivity, or improve the implant-tissue integration are discussed. Expand
Electrode Failure: Tissue, Electrical, and Material Responses
TLDR
The development of invasive, rehabilitative neuroprosthetics for humans requires reliable neural probes that are capable of recording large ensembles of neurons for a long period of time and suffers from time-dependent degradation in signal quality due to unknown issues related to tissue interfaces.

Neuronal cell loss accompanies the brain tissue response to chronically implanted silicon microelectrode arrays
TLDR
Persistent ED1 up-regulation and neuronal loss was not observed in microelectrode stab controls indicating that the phenotype did not result from the initial mechanical trauma of electrode implantation, but was associated with the foreign body response. Expand

TLDR
Results of the reported experiments indicate that the UIEA can be successfully used for limited times in a chronic recording application, and could form the platform for a cortical neuroprosthetic system. Expand
Stability of the interface between neural tissue and chronically implanted intracortical microelectrodes.
TLDR
The results indicate that, after implantation, the electrode-tissue interface may change from day-to-day over the first 1-2 weeks, week- to-week for 1- 2 months, and become quite stable thereafter, and a stability index is proposed to quantify the stability of the electrodes-tissues interface.

Long-term neural recording characteristics of wire microelectrode arrays implanted in cerebral cortex.
TLDR
The results reported in this paper suggest that a viable implant will have discriminable unit activity on about 80% of the electrodes, resulting in, on average, the simultaneous unit recording of upwards of 60 units during a daily recording session. Expand

TLDR
A novel long-term recording electrode combines neural regeneration with a standard wire recording technique and opens unique opportunities for studies of neurite growth in vivo, for plasticity studies on a captive set of neurites, for studying the neural correlates of behavior and motor learning, and for accessing the central nervous systems of patients with severe paralysing and communicative disorders.
