We are a start-up ( [obscured] ) developing and manufacturing integrated micro-electronics circuits (chips) that are used by scientific community to study neurons and in particular neuronal networks and retina. For instance, a network of neurons derived from stem cells can be cultured on our chip up to form a sort of "mini-brain" and then our chip is able to sense the electrical activity of the neurons (which is the language used by neurons to communicate) in order to study neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's Disease. Our devices represent the interface between the neuro-biological world and the digital-electronic world. The novelty is that our chip integrates thousands of sensors (each sensor can interface with a neuron, hence we can read-out from thousands of them), while past devices had only ~60 sensors. We need an illustration (either 2D or 3D) to express these two main concepts: (i) neuro-chip interface and (ii) high-resolution. The illustration should sh...
