The brain is always subject to electronic waves. There are myriads of electirical activities constantly happening in the brain. Most people brain's problems start when those activities are perturbed. The role of the implants might be to restore those activities back.

@_hm,

Every technology has side effects and they are not known until the technology is used. Brain implants are still work-in-progress and the technology will be be used after years to testing and proof of its safety to humans.

The first thing that comes to mind when the subject is of healthcare is: human resources management. The brain implant may not be widely received even though it has almost got a green signal from the FDA. Moreover, if, during the guinea pig testing, the device becomes faulty, or stops responding, how would we know? And if the device constantly sends a signal of its operation and tells the doctors when to get a brain surgery, doesn't that mean that the brain will be subjected to electronic waves generated by the implant that may affect the person adversely?

"the NeuroPace device could be implanted in the skull" Do we know the dimensions ? because on the pictures seems quite big and I don't know how "easy" will be to implement that in the skull.

Invasive implant for brain does not very good idea. Main reason its unknow side effects.

Better way may be employment of mm wave technology both for measurement and for simulation.
