Welcome to the Biomedical Functional Imaging and Neuroengineering Laboratory!
The mission of the Biomedical Functional Imaging and Neuroengineering Laboratory is to advance the state of art of functional biomedical imaging and neuroengineering through engineering innovation which will contribute to basic biomedical research and clinical applications. Research in the lab includes functional biomedical imaging (functional neuroimaging, functional cardiac imaging, and cancer imaging), and neuroengineering (neural interfacing, neural modulation, neural sensing, and neural control). A particular strength of the laboratory is its combined mission of developing advanced engineering technologies for biomedical applications and investigating biomedical systems using the techniques developed in our laboratory. With the state-of-art imaging, modulation, and interfacing systems, the lab is capable of conducting experiments to map electrical activities originating from the brain, heart, muscle, and other organ systems, to characterize and image tissue properties, and to interface human subjects with computers for neurorobotics applications.
