Anisha Rastogi

Graduate Student

Case Western Reserve University

Anisha is an MD/PhD candidate of the Neural Engineering Center at Case Western Reserve University, working with Dr. Bolu Ajiboye. During her first year on the BrainGate team, Anisha developed a novel presurgical fMRI mapping protocol to identify reaching and grasping areas of the motor cortex in individuals with tetraplegia. Currently, she is investigating how force is represented in the motor cortex, and the feasibility of using force-related neural information as control signals for brain-computer interfaces.

Anisha received her bachelor’s degree from Washington University in St. Louis in Biomedical Engineering in 2012, and formally joined the BrainGate team in 2014.
