The EE Times Community Weighs in on Brain Implants as it Nears FDA Approval
Date:10/23/2013

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  The first brain implant to listen to brain waves and autonomously decide when to apply a therapy to prevent an epileptic seizure is about to hit the market – maybe -- according to the EE Times article, "Brain Implants Near Milestone,"  Some say today's deep brain implants are in a stage of development similar to cardiac devices in the early 1980s and may be at the precipice of other families of systems addressing a wide variety of neurological disorders.  EE Times' Rick Merritt, author of the article, carried the discussion online debating the issues of security, FDA approval and the benefits of this therapy.

"Having recently witnessed a grand mal seizure from someone close, I'm happy to see this. At the same time, I think the extended approval period is worthwhile. From what I understand, the current state of anti-seizure drugs are very effective. I'd be curious to know under what circumstances the implants are more or less effective than the state of the art drugs... both are invasive but in different ways."

Great news...

"This is exciting news after 14 years of hard work.  The first implant to listen to brain waves and autonomously decide when to apply a therapy to prevent an epileptic seizure will indeed improve the life of many people.  I cannot wait to hear more.  Hope there will be a follow-up article with more detail information once it hit[s] the market."
