Combining Engineering and Neuroscience
Neuroengineering interfaces with neuroscience to find solutions to issues such as abnormal brain function as well as neurological and psychological diseases.
Research in this area explores new techniques for therapy and rehabilitation. Research is highly collaborative and relies on cutting-edge technology, such as the 3D Tesla MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) machine at Fralin Biomedical Research Institute, which provides highly effective tools for study and analysis.
Our research projects in this area include neuroimaging acquisition and data analysis, mapping and generating functional brain networks, treatment and diagnosis of neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric diseases, nerve injury and cellular repair, and the complex mechanisms of injury to the brain.
