RLE Research Groups

Bioelectronics Group

In the Bioelectronics Group, we envision integration of biology and electronics with devices that incorporate biologically inspired components and technologies that seamlessly interface biological and electronic systems. We are currently focused on developing methods to manipulate nerve cells. The available toolkit for neural stimulation in neurological therapy and research is hindered by poor spatial resolution and is often highly invasive. By exploring novel methods of neural stimulation, we hope to realize improvement in targeted and noninvasive stimulation.

Investigations:
Minimally Invasive Neural Stimulation
Flexible High Resolution Neural Recording Arrays
Optoelectronic Neural Scaffolds

The group is led by Professor Polina O. Anikeeva
