«A multi-campus research team has developed a novel device for non-invasively measuring cervical nerve activity in humans. The device has potential applications for supporting more personalized treatments for sepsis and mental health conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder.»

«The device features a flexible array of electrodes that stretch from the lower front to the upper back of the neck, allowing researchers to capture electrical activity across different nerves. Other features include an integrated user interface for visualizing data in real-time, and a custom algorithm for grouping people according to their nervous systems’ response to stress.»
