Project Description:

We approach neuroscience through the lens of engineering to develop neural interfaces to restore some combination of sensory feedback and motor control in individuals with limb-loss or paralysis.

Various projects and background information can be found on the Center for Neural Interfaces lab website:

Prospective students can also propose their own projects as long as they are within the scope of the lab:
