We combine our knowledge of brain and body with robotics to develop new ways for the nervous system to control external devices, including prosthetics. We particularly interested in design of human-computer interfaces that can help disabled people gain some independence in their daily life. These interfaces are controlled by manipulating the body’s natural electrical signals (i.e. EEG, EMG) and can be connected to a variety of external devices, such as the television set, e-readers, light switches, and telepresence robots.
We have various collaborations as part of the UC Davis Center for Neuroengineering and Medicine.
