As a team of scientists and engineers focusing on neuroscience and neuroengineering, we combine multimodal and advanced measurement techniques with sophisticated computational approaches to understand the neural mechanisms and neural computations underlying cognition and movement. Overarching questions involve how the brain selects what is important in the environment for attention, how socially and physically relevant stimuli are processed, and how the nervous system coordinates muscles and limbs into cohesive motor output. We are particularly interested in the neural computations underlying these processes, which will lead to design of prosthetics engineering and robotics. Our research infrastructure includes microscopic level measurements using state-of-the-art human single-neuron recordings as well as macroscopic level measurements using fMRI, EEG, and intracranial EEG (sEEG and ECoG) to study brain function and EMG to study muscle function. These multimodal experimental approaches are powered by sophisticated computational approaches that can deal with complex and large datasets. We study both healthy individuals and neurological populations such as people with autism and stroke patients.
