Implanted neural devices are instrumental in studying the brain and treating certain neurological conditions. For these devices to perform optimally, engineers must have a detailed understanding of device specifications, the nervous system’s response to the device, and the underlying physiology that drives neural function. A combination of intracortical recording and in vivo imaging can improve our understanding in these areas, potentially informing design considerations and intervention strategies. In this regard, I am interested in exploring the cellular and subcellular responses to implants, as well as coordinated electrophysiological activity throughout the cortex.
