Silicon Chip inside Gut May Help Prevent Obesity
Experts at the Imperial College suggested that microchips can be helpful in cutting obesity. They suggested that when a person will attach an intelligent implantable modulator with clip-on cuff electrodes to the vagus nerve in the peritoneal cavity of the abdomen, it will help him/her to reduce his extra pounds.
The animal trials of the chips are under process. The vagus nerve, in an organism, acts as the main pathway between the brain and the digestive system to transfer information. The experts suggested that the microchip can translate when the nerve is sending out a message regarding having something to eat. This will transmit an electrical signal to the brain that will decrease the urge to eat.
The experts suggested that the new discovery will be a more sophisticated approach than the one which is followed commonly, i. e. cutting off the stomach with a gastric band. The other benefit is that the chip is that it can be removed easily.
The other benefits of the chip include the ways of breathing, regulation of heart rate and the reproductive functions as all of them are controlled by the vagus nerve. They experts suggested that neural stimulation gives the feeling of full stomach along with that they wi8ll be creating a feeling of relaxation that can be proven helpful in slashing depression.
