As our name suggests, hRNEL conducts basic neuroscience, neural engineering, and clinical translational research in humans with the goal of developing advanced neuroprosthetic technology and novel rehabilitation strategies to improve quality of life for individuals with sensory and/or motor impairments caused by neurological disorders such as stroke, spinal cord injury, and cerebral palsy. We utilize various invasive and non-invasive neuroimaging techniques such as electrocorticography (ECoG) and magnetoencephalography (MEG), to study spatiotemporal dynamics of cortical activity during various motor, sensory, and language tasks. We are also developing minimally-invasive neural recording technology based on ECoG for a practical fully-implantable brain-computer interface device.
