Project Description:

This project will develop and validate a novel implantable microelectrode array for brain recording. The technology is novel and is designed to precisely and accurately record the brain neural activities in a large-scale matter and at a single neuron level, which will facilitate functional large-scale brain recording and modulation in human subjects in the future.



Opportunity Type:

IN PERSON - Volunteer; Prepare a UROP proposal; Write an Honors Thesis or Senior Thesis


Student Role:

Under supervision of the professor and working with graduate students, you will design the electrode array, conduct charaterization and optimization.


Student Benefits:

learn skills and knowledge of brain machine interfaces as well as get research experiences


Project Duration:

This is a one-year project, the estimated time effort will be discussed based on the student's availability and motivation


Minimum Requirements:

Self-motivated, lab work experience is a plus
