Electrical Neuromodulation denotes the process by which ongoing activity of one or more neural circuits can be modulated by electrical stimulation of a different part of the nervous system. In patients, this process can elicit profound changes in physiological function. For example, sacral spinal nerve stimulation can treat urinary disorders, dorsal spinal cord stimulation can alleviate pain, and deep brain stimulation can suppress symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. The primary goals of our lab are to (1) better understand the fundamental neurophysiological properties of (healthy and diseased) biological systems, (2) engineer innovative nerve-electrode interface technologies, and (3) facilitate the clinical translation of potential therapies in patients.
