  • Experiments so far with neural dust motes have only involved the peripheral nervous system, which serves the limbs and organs, and not the central nervous system consisting of the brain and spinal cord.
  • Eventually motes could find use anywhere in the body, not just the nervous system, Maharbiz says.
  • The researchers want to shrink neural dust motes down to just 50 microns wide, or roughly half the average width of a human hair.
