Research Paper on Wireless Brain Sensors
A microscope is an instrument that allows people to see living organisms that are not visible to the naked eye. In 1590 Hans and Zacharias Janssen created the first microscope. In 1667 Robert Hooke’s famous “Micrographia” was published which outlines Hooke’s various studies using the microscope. In 1675 Anton Van Leeuwenhoek was the first to observe bacteria. In the 18th century, Microscopy became more popular among scientists. And it is discovered that combining two types of glass reduces the chromatic effect. In 1830 Joseph Jackson Lister discovers that using weak lenses together at various distances provides clear magnification. In 1878 Ernst Abbe invented a mathematical theory linking Microscopy to light wavelength. In 1903 Richard Zsigmondy invented an ultramicroscope, which allows for observation of specimen below the wavelength of light. In 1932 transparent biological materials, which are living organisms that are transparent. Transparent biological materials are then studied for the first-time using Frits Xernike’s invention, which is the phase-contrast microscope. The phase-contrast microscope is a microscope that converts phase shifts in light passing, through a transparent specimen, which brightens the image. In 1938 Ernst Ruska invented the electron microscope, which enhances resolution and in 1981 3-D specimen images are made possible with Gerd Binnig’s and Heinrich Rohrer’s invention, which is the scanning and tunneling microscope. The scanning and tunneling microscope is an instrument used for imaging surfaces at the atomic level.
The technology I have chosen is the wireless brain sensor because I am curious about how Wireless Brain Sensors work.
Wireless brain sensors are devices capable of detecting the temperature, pressure, and pH inside the brain and brain activity. Wireless brain sensors are also affordable, have more pros than cons and are dissolvable.
The SHE concepts of wireless brain sensors that I will be focusing on are Application and Limitation. The last SHE concept I will be focusing on is Influence.
The SHE concept of application is involved as wireless brain sensors send the data to the brain-computer interfaces (BCI), which means that neutral interfaces that monitor the brain's electrical activity during the day and wirelessly transmit data from brain to external analyzing devices otherwise known as BCI’s. Also, the fact that the application of wireless brain sensors is that wireless brain sensors are mostly used for those with Parkinson’s disease, traumatic brain injury, sleep disorders, dementia, and other brain-related conditions. Wireless brain sensors also assist in monitoring neurological fluctuations and help to improve cognitive functionalities. The way wireless brain sensors help those with neurological disorders is that they measure the chemicals in the brain and check for a chemical imbalance. If they detect a chemical imbalance, they will alert the BCI and the user will then know that they have a chemical imbalance and need to get treated. This relates to application because application means putting something into operation and the process of wireless brain sensors puts less risk of a life being lost. Also, the pros and cons of Wireless Brain Sensors contribute to the influence, as well as the success. The pros of wireless brain sensors are that it dissolves over time and decreases the risk of chronic inflammation, infection and erosion of the organ or skin where it has been placed. The cons of wireless brain sensors are that it is a lengthy process, expensive, can be hacked and can malfunction if the power goes out. Limitation is involved as Wireless Brain Sensors can lead to an immune response leading to chronic inflammation, infections and erosion of skin and organs where they are placed. The other limitations to wireless brain sensors are the cost of the program and the treatment. This relates to limitation because limitation means a restriction and the cost may be unattainable. As well as the risks stopping people from getting Wireless brain sensors if they are prone to the risks. The impact wireless brain sensors have had on society is that wireless brain sensors have helped diagnose diseases more accurately, can be hacked, have made people healthier and saved people from dying. This relates to limitation because some of the impact that wireless brain sensors have had on people may stop people from getting one. People also may choose not to get one because they do not want to be diagnosed with a disease.
Influence is also a SHE concept because many people want it in North America and it is gaining more popularity in the Asia Pacific. Its Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) is 9.6% per year, Grandview Research Inc (Oct 2020, pg. 1). It also has made people healthier as it saves people from dying because it measures the chemicals inside the brain and can detect chemical imbalances. Another reason influence is a SHE CONCEPT is because Wireless Brain Sensors are available in Eurasia and Oceania.
The success of wireless brain sensors is rising as it is becoming more accepted and Praised. Also, the average cost for a wireless brain sensor for a single user is $4,500. The cost of a wireless brain sensor for a multiuser is $6,500 and the cost of a wireless brain sensor for a corporate user is $7,500 which is affordable to most people.
The structure of wireless brain sensors is that they are made of eco-friendly materials which are designed to work for a smaller time duration. Then dissolve completely into cerebrospinal fluid over course of about a day when immersed.
I think in the future wireless brain sensors will become more economical, more accurate, will not be able to be hacked, will be better at diagnosing disabilities and diseases and be more popular around the world.
