'Neuromodulation of Urinary Tract Function'


Quote:
'a closed-loop wireless system with a strain gauge wrapped around the bladder of freely moving rats. The strain gauge measures changes in resistance during bladder filling and emptying. When the bladder becomes overactive, a signal is sent to activate a small microscale inorganic light-emitting diode (m-ILED), which, in turn, activates a light-sensitive archaeal protein, an opsin, to selectively reduce neural activity. This action delivers a corrective signal, thereby restoring normal bladder function.'

Perfect. Now if only it can work in humans. I can imagine a lot of people are tired of engaging in light reading at 3AM.
