About Us

The Neural Interfaces Lab fabricates and tests devices for stimulation and recording of both the central and peripheral nervous system. Our lab focuses on designing flexible ultra-microelectrode arrays and the fabrication of silicon carbide based devices. We also investigate the electrochemical properties and chronic stability of neural electrodes in bench-top studies as well as animal studies.
