Implantable neural prostheses and brain-machine interfaces (BMIs) hold the promise to offer new therapies for brain disorders that may no longer respond to conventional treatments. Despite significant advances in neural interface microsystems over the past decade, the existing clinical-grade technologies do not adequately meet the clinical needs for severe psychiatric illness and other disabling neurological conditions such as epilepsy, paralysis, and Parkinson’s disease. In this talk, I will present an overview of our research on the integration of modern signal processing and machine learning techniques in neural interface System-on-Chips (SoCs) for epilepsy, movement, and mental disorders, and for the next-generation implantable brain-machine interfaces for communication and movement recovery. Our goal is to develop intelligent and highly integrated CMOS-based devices for a wide range of brain disorders in the future.
