Research Areas

Our Focus

Current research is focused on improving the ability of people with spinal cord injury, brainstem stroke, and ALS to operate a computer and providing them with reliable, constant control over their environment. The technology may ultimately give “natural” control over advanced prosthetic limbs, provide people with paralysis easy control over powerful assistive movement and communication devices, and, eventually, enable naturally-controlled movements of paralyzed limbs. In addition, we are developing a new generation of wireless medical technologies that will be able to record and monitor neural activity to assist in the diagnosis and management of neurologic disease.
