New technology: Efficient real time brain spike detection

A team of researchers headed by those at the University of Southampton have recently demonstrated a new way to encode and compress neuronal spiking activity in real time. Besides its implications of finding efficient links between biology and electronics, the Southampton team hopes that this research will lead to a new type of autonomous
