The integration of stimulation, recording and high-field MRI has significant potential to evaluate different organs (brain, heart, gut etc.). However, externally powered devices consisting of cables and connectors for powering and synchronization may perturb the magnetic field within the MRI system and create additional safety concerns at high-fields. Here we present an MRI powered and triggered system, namely X-ON, to deliver electrical stimulation during MRI operation. The MR-compatible system can harvest wireless energy from varying gradient fields and provide programmable current stimulation in synchronization with MRI or fMRI acquisition.
