A major challenge in neuronal molecular communications lies in modulating signals through the neuronal network of the cortex that will minimize interference with the natural signalling. In this paper, we propose the use of Electroencephalogram (EEG) signals as a sensing mechanism to determine spiking interval gaps that can be used to stimulate artificial data transfer in the cortical microcolumn.
