Our lab is hiring for a new postdoctoral scholar. See description below. The UCI BCI lab is actively recruiting for a post-doctoral scholar to join our research team in designing a fully implantable BCI system to help people with paralysis
Our research team has been awarded an $8M research grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to continue our development on a fully implantable BCI system. The goals of this project will be to develop and test bi-directional (BD), electrocorticogram
BCI research can become an expensive endeavor. The price point may be too high for researchers and even prospective patients to afford. In addition, many of the systems that are currently used in BCI research turn out to be bulky
Our recent publication, “The feasibility of a brain-computer interface functional electrical stimulation system for the restoration of overground walking after paraplegia,” received a significant media attention. Some of the coverage is summarized here.
Our study, entitled, “The feasibility of a brain-computer interface functional electrical stimulation system for the restoration of overground walking after paraplegia,” was recently published in the Journal of Neuroengineering and Rehabilitation. This study described how a man with T6 spinal
http://www.jneuroengrehab.com/content/12/1/57 We recently completed a Phase I clinical trial which examined the safety of a BCI-FES system for dorsiflexion therapy in chronic stroke survivors. Applying the BCI-FES therapy not only appeared to be safe, but may also lead to an
The UCI Brain Computer Interface Lab has undergraduate and master level student researcher positions open in the below areas (research descriptions included): Mechanical Engineering: Students will be involved in the design of implantable enclosures for electronics. This includes the design
To the best of our knowledge, the UCI BCI Lab achieved the first ever restoration of brain-controlled walking after paraplegia due to spinal cord injury (SCI), as demonstrated in recent papers. Although our lab and the project has been underway
Our collaborative research team, consisting of Dr. Payam Heydari (UCI EECS), Dr. Zoran Nenadic (UCI BME), Dr. Charles Liu, MD, PHD (Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center, Neurosurgery), and myself, have just been awarded a multi-PI grant from the National Science Foundation
