Jesse Wheeler will be giving a talk on his work in neurotechnology at MIT. Jesse has worked as the Neurotechnology Business Lead at Draper Laboratory for Five and a half years. He has lead efforts in advanced closed-loop medical implants include a 320-channel brain implant to treat neuropsychiatric disorders, a 128-channel peripheral nerve implant to restore sensorimotor function to amputees, and a 128-ch wirelessly networked system consisting of multiple 1cc implants for distributed therapies.
He is also a leader on the famous DragonFleye project, using a combination of MEMS and optogentics to manipulate nervous system of a live dragonfly. These cybernetic implants allow an outside observer to steer the dragonfly, in hopes that it may one day be used for observation and reconnaissance.
