Building new technologies for interfacing the brain

We are active in a number of neurotechnology development areas. This includes development of new flexible electrode materials and scalable insertion systems, development of small, battery-powered embedded systems for chronic experiments, and new imaging systems for fluorescence-mediated recording of neural activity.
