New Frontiers in Neuroscience Publication

E-13 MSTP student David Caldwell’s publication in Frontiers in Neuroscience looks into electrocorticographic brain computer interfaces, which offer opportunities to restore brain function in individuals suffering from neurological damage. This article reviews ECoG electrodes, the physics and physiology of DES, and the use of electrical stimulation of the brain for the clinical treatment of disorders such as epilepsy and Parkinson’s disease. It also explores enabling technologies, such as smaller ECoG electrodes for more precise targeting of cortical areas, signal processing strategies for simultaneous simulation and recording, and computational modeling and algorithms for tailoring simulation to each individual brain.
