Event Related Optical Signal

Event Related Optical Signal or EROS is a relatively young, non-invasive neuroprosthetic input method which used channelled infra-red light, typically through the medium of an optic fibre bundle, to pierce the skin and skull, peering into the brain.

EROS takes advantage of the scattering properties of neurons within the brain, to detect which sections are firing at any given time. It has an impressive degree of accuracy, almost unheard of in non-invasives, able to deal with volumetric spaces of a cubic millimetre of brain tissue at a time. However, due to the absorbent properties of brain tissue, currently EROS can only scan a few centimetres deep into the brain. Anything else is hidden, masked by the neurons in front.

Optogenetics and Neuroprosthetics Combine
Optogenetics as a field of study, is only a few years old but already a means has been found to make use of it in living brains. Light-detecting proteins combined with gene therapy and an optical neuroprosthetic with a BrainGate style 3D array allow true two-way communication between the brain and a computer system.

This still from Chrysalis shows a very different method of locking and unlocking your front door than we are used to. There is no key and no key hole. Instead, what there is is a retinal scanner embedded in the door level with the average head. Peer in and if it recognises you, it unlocks. If not, there is nothing to pick.
