This talk is aimed at presenting novel solutions developed recently by the author’s group for many neurological disorders including Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, depression, anxiety, sleep apnea and sleep disorders using the fundamental research and developments in nanotechnologies and wireless sensor network. Point-of-care (POC) diagnostics promises to bring diagnostic testing out of the laboratory directly to patients and the general public wherever they may be. The key to POC diagnostics is capable of bringing immediate answers so that health care professionals can make rapid and accurate diagnosis of disease so as to ensure the effectiveness of therapy and early detection for preventive therapy. Selected movies illustrating the applications of both invasive and non-invasive wireless nanosensor systems to patients and surgical procedures will be shown at the talk.
