The signals circulating between the neurons are accomplished by action potential. These variations of neural activities can be recorded by many different ways. One of the methods to record these variations is by using sensors. These sensors are designed for transferring and recording cellular action potential. The parameter of cellular action potential includes frequency, amplitude, wave shape and velocity. The output of the sensor can be connected wireless up to eight different electronic devices. This help in connecting different application functioning simultaneously instead of singular device utilizing the complete outputs. By using Bluetooth-piconet network technology and embedded microcontroller signals can be received and the data acquisition can be accomplished. All mobile devices and other devices within the range of 10 meters can be connected by employing this technique. This enables sharing the processing power of the connected devices using Bluetooth technique evading traditional 2 steps. Bluetooth is considered as standardized protocol for transferring and receiving data by means of a 2.4GHz wireless link. It is a safe and sound protocol that suits for short-range, low-power, and low cost wireless transmissions connecting different electronic devices.
