Topic Description
Professor Krishna Shenoy will present a talk about Neural prosthetics on October 10, 2017.
Prof. Shenoy directs the Neural Prosthetic Systems Lab (NPSL) at Stanford University, where his group conducts neuroscience and neuroengineering research to better understand how the brain controls movement and to design medical systems to assist those with movement disabilities. His neuroscience research investigates the neural basis of movement preparation and generation using a combination of electrophysiological, behavioral, computational and theoretical techniques. His neuroengineering research investigates the design of high-performance neural prosthetic systems, which are also known as brain-computer interfaces and brain-machine interfaces. These systems translate neural activity from the brain into control signals for prosthetic devices, which assist people with paralysis by restoring lost function. This work includes statistical-signal processing, machine learning, low-power circuits and real-time system modeling and implementation. Shenoy co-directs (along with Professor Jaimie Henderson, MD, Neurosurgery) the Neural Prosthetics Translational Laboratory (NPTL; 2009–present) which conducts brain-machine interface FDA clinical trials with people with paralysis.
