Research Areas

Assistive Communication

Assistive Communication

For people with locked-in syndrome - the inability to move and to speak despite being fully awake and alert (for example, due to brainstem injury or ALS).

Movement Restoration

Movement Restoration

For people with cervical spinal cord injury or brainstem stroke, the signals from the motor cortex have been “disconnected” from the limb.

Neuroscience

Neuroscience

New technologies have provided scientists with the ability to record dozens to 100 or more neurons simultaneously.

Neurotechnology

Neurotechnology

Multiple neuroengineering challenges exist today in creating practical, chronic, multichannel neural recording systems for research and for human clinical neural interface application.

Neurotherapeutics

Neurotherapeutics

The potential to restore function after paralysis is only one potential benefit of harnessing the power of intracortical signals.
