Introducing Neurotech Business Report
Neurotech Business Report is the first
publication targeting the business of neurotechnology, the application
of engineering techniques to human neural and information processing
systems. Each monthly issue of Neurotech Business Report brings
you in-depth and expert analysis of one of the newest and most promising
industries of the 21st Century.
While other newsletters cover the broad
field of medical technology, no other publication precisely targets
the neurotechnology industry. And no one else looks beyond the health-care
industry to cover the ongoing technology transfer from medical devices
to commercial products in emerging markets like computer interfaces
Neurotech Business Report covers the
business and the technology in place and on the horizon in:
Magnetic sensing and stimulation
Artificial neural networks
Our editors scour the scene for current and potential applications
of neurotechnology in fields like:
Who Will Benefit
With its blend of up-to-date technology analysis and visionary outlooks
on future market growth, Neurotech Business Report appeals to entrepreneurs,
upper-level managers, financial leaders, and other key players in
this growing industry, including engineering directors, financial
planners, venture capitalists, and marketing executives.

Venture Capital Outlook
The demise of the dotcom and ecommerce
frenzy of the last few years has created an interesting opportunity-and
a potential pitfallfor start-ups in the neurotechnology industry.
Our editors examine the major factors influencing the availability
of venture capital to this industry and three different strategies
for exploiting this current opportunity.
Magnetic Stimulators Promise New Market
While functional electrical stimulation
has made tremendous progress in the development of neural prostheses,
there are numerous impediments to rapid commercial growth, such
as the requirement for surgical implantation. Not so for neural
magnetic stimulators, which can generate neural activity with magnetic
fields in close contact with human tissue. In this report, we look
at the current state of development of magnetic stimulation systems.
State and Local Governments Spur Neurotech
In recent years, there has been a pronounced
effort on the part of state and local agencies and public and private
universities to commercialize research and foster start-ups in biomedical
technology. In this article, our editors examine efforts such as
Ohios Edison BioTechnology Center to see which neurotech firms
have benefited and which areas are ripe for exploitation. And well
let you know which services are worth taking advantage of and which
ones are best left on the table.
Computer Industry Chomps at the Bit
Perhaps no other potential market for
neurotech is as eager to put new technology developments to use
as the computer industry. Products that enhance or expand the man/machine
interface, such as EEG-based joystick controls and artificial olfactory
systems are eagerly awaited by CPU and peripherals manufacturers
looking for a leg up on the competition. Apple Computer is just
one of several companies who have highlighted neurotech developments
for commercial benefit.
