Integrated Neurotechnologies Laboratory
Our research at INL lies at the intersection of circuit design, machine learning, and neuroscience, and our mission is to develop new diagnostic and therapeutic devices for neurological and neuropsychiatric disorders.
We use advanced circuit design techniques to build low-power and miniaturized system-on-chips (SoCs) that can record neural activity, detect brain dysfunction in real time, and respond by therapeutic intervention such as neurostimulation. We use machine learning techniques for accurate detection of neurological symptoms in closed-loop neural implants, and for motor decoding in brain-machine interface systems.
