From ways to eaves­drop on brains and learn what adver­tise­ments excite con­sumers, to devices that alle­vi­ate depres­sion, the num­ber of U.S. patents award­ed for “neu­rotech­nol­o­gy” has soared since 2010, accord­ing to an analy­sis released on Wednes­day.

Neu­rotech has gone well beyond med­i­cine, with non-med­ical cor­po­ra­tions, often under the radar, devel­op­ing neu­rotech­nolo­gies to enhance work and life,” Alvaro Fer­nan­dez said.

Nielsen has made a sub­stan­tial invest­ment in neu­rotech­nol­o­gy over the past sev­er­al years, which is reflect­ed in the size of our patent port­fo­lio,” said Joe Wilke, Pres­i­dent, Nielsen Neu­ro. “It’s grat­i­fy­ing to be rec­og­nized by the Sharp­Brains study as the leader in this excit­ing new area.”
