About the Journal

AIM

Journal of Bionic Memory is a multidisciplinary, peer-reviewed and open access journal that publishes original research articles, review articles, cases and brief reports of clinical and experimental scientific on "artificial body parts and implants developed to interface with living tissues" and their "memories".

SCOPE

Some of the modern implantable products that continue to emerge as achievements of current state-of-the-art technology are in clinical use or are still in research,  e.g., Brain to Machine Interface, Cochlear Implant and Hearing Aids, Insulin Pumps, Vagus Nerve Stimulation, Artificial Heart, Diaphragm Stimulator, Artificial Arm, Artificial Leg, Artificial Knee, Artificial Foot, Artificial Skin, Bladder Stimulator, Drug Delivery, Spinal Fusion Hardware, Heart Pacemaker and Defibrillator, Breast Implants, Traumatic Fracture Repair, Bionic Eye, Deep Brain Stimulation , RFID Tag, and Bionic Hand.

Journal of Bionic Memory deals with clinical and experimental studies in the areas listed below:

  • Electronic chips that are studied on "Memories" to create bionic organs and tissues.
  • Artificial intelligence that can replicate the development of the human brain and its studies that can solve clinical problems
  • Studies inspired by new techniques such as optogenetics. [Optogenetics involves using light to control cells in living tissue, typically nerve cells (neurons)].
  • Research into being able to replicate neural behavior on an electronic chip to better understand how the brain is affected by disorders that disrupt neural connections such as Alzheimer's disease and other types of dementia.
  • Studies on computer models that can simulate brain functions and abnormalities.
  • Studies on wearable electronics, bionic prostheses or artificial intelligence powered smart devices.
  • Innovative research into the development of bionic devices such as technological implants that will interface with living tissues (artificial retinas and retinal implants)
  • Experimental studies on the bionic implications of "pattern recognition", which is an important element in human action.
  • "Neural implants" used for deep brain stimulation, vagus nerve stimulation and mind controlled prostheses.
  • Clinical, laboratory and experimental studies on "Neural implants" used to treat disease, rehabilitate the body after injury, improve memory, communicate with prosthetic limbs, and more.
  • Research on the patterns in which healthy neural circuits communicate.
  • Clinical and laboratory studies of deep brain stimulation (DBS) used in conditions such as Parkinson's disease, dystonia, tinnitus, epilepsy, obsessive-compulsive disorder and neuropathic pain.
  • Studies investigating the place of DBS in the treatment of Tourette’s syndrome and psychiatric depression.
  • Neural implants- the stimulation of the spinal cord, also known as epidural stimulation.
  • Neuromodulation studies for mind-controlled prostheses to enable amputees to control their robotic hands, arms, and legs using their thoughts.
  • Tumor targeting  biopsies.
  • Skin-integrated electronics for intelligent sensing (Skin-integrated electronics are a novel type of wearable devices that are mounted on the skin for physiological signal sensing and healthcare monitoring).
  • Nano memory cell.
