On the cutting edge of neural engineering, neuroscience and neuro-technology
Brain Computer Interfaces
Investigating alternative control signals including local field potentials (LFPs) and electrocorticography (ECoG).
Examining the neural control of movement through recording cells and field potentials in motor regions of cortex.
Learning how the brain controls voluntary upper arm movements to further our basic scientific understanding of motor cortex and apply this knowledge to restore function to patients with impaired descending motor pathways.
Designing and implementing novel bipolar sieve electrodes capable of achieving this intra-fascicular interface with peripheral nervous tissue.
