AB - A neural interface arrangement comprising: a plurality of probes for subdural implantation into or onto a human brain, each probe including at least one sensing electrode, a coil for receiving power via inductive coupling, signal processing circuitry coupled to the sensing electrode(s), and means for wirelessly transmitting data-carrying signals arising from the sensing electrode(s); an array of coils for implantation above the dura, beneath the skull, the array of coils being for inductively coupling with the coil of each of the plurality of probes, for transmitting power to the probes; and a primary (e.g. subcutaneous) coil connected to the array of coils, the primary coil being for inductively coupling with an external transmitter device, for receiving power from the external transmitter device; wherein, in use, the primary coil is operable to receive power from the external transmitter device by inductive coupling and to cause the array of coils to transmit power to the plurality of probes by inductive coupling; and wherein, in use, the plurality of probes are operable to wirelessly transmit data-carrying signals arising from the sensing electrodes.
