We seek to gain an understanding of the human brain that will enable rebuilding neural circuitry and restoring function.


We work toward discovering fundamental principles of brain function and developing innovative diagnostic and therapeutic technologies. We use molecular, biological and computational engineering techniques to understand, repair, replace, enhance and capitalize on the properties of neural systems.


Our division encompasses an interdisciplinary set of neuroscientists, computer scientists, biochemists and engineers. Our research interests span a wide range of experimental and theoretical approaches that include neuroimaging, neuronal computation and modeling, neuro-nanotechnology, neurophotonics, brain stimulation and neuromodulation, neuro-prostheses, brain-computer and brain-machine interfaces.
