Research Interests

Our laboratory integrates and advances scientific, engineering, and clinical concepts to innovate, develop and test new neurotechnologies and to apply them to basic and applied research. These multidisciplinary efforts span a variety of areas, including computational, cognitive, and systems neuroscience, signal processing, machine learning, statistics, computer science, and neurology/neurosurgery. Our vision is to revolutionize the way we can study the brain, and to develop important new clinical tools for diagnosis or treatment of nervous system function.

To pursue this research, we acquire signals from the brain and integrate them with anatomical and behavioral measurements, use computational and statistical techniques, and develop software tools in different programming languages such as C++, Matlab and Python.
