Krishna Shenoy (Stanford)
The event will start on: Mon, Mar 31, 2014 | 4:15 pm
Location: Carl Icahn Lab, 101 | Washington Road
Quantitative & Computational Biology
Shenoy conducts basic and applied research on neural prosthetic systems. Basic studies include investigating sensory-motor and cognitive functions in the primate cortex using a combination of behavioral, electrophysiological, and computational techniques to discover how populations of neurons represent movement plans. Applied studies include designing algorithms to read out these representations and developing prosthetic systems controlled by the neural activity. The ultimate goal of these neural prosthetic systems, or brain-computer interfaces, is to assist disabled patients.
