    A flexible, implantable electronic device may have clinical application in the treatment of spinal cord injuries and Parkinson's disease, researchers reported in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
    Tuan-Khoa Nguyen, PhD, a postdoctoral research fellow at Griffith University in Australia, and colleagues used silicon carbide technology as a new platform for long-term electronic bio-tissue interfaces.
    “Implantable and flexible devices have enormous potential to treat chronic diseases such as Parkinson's disease and injuries to the spinal cord,” Nguyen said in a
