Neuroengineering

Neuroengineering.jpg

We explore the application of organic electronic materials in neural interfacing, aiming to understand how the brain works and to develop new tools for the diagnosis and treatment of neurological disorders. Among our achievements are (i) the development of ultra-conformable microelectrode arrays for recording corticograms, recently used in the clinic to record single neuron activity from the surface of the brain of epileptic patients, and (ii) the first use of a transistor in recording brain activity, resulting in record-high signal-to-noise ratio. We are currently developing high density arrays for large-scale recordings as well as strategies to improve the electronics/tissue interface in order to extend the functional life of implants.
