The Brain-Spine-Machine Interfaces Lab works at the interface of Neuroscience and Engineering. Our goal is to develop neural recording and stimulation tools to treat neurological disorders and understand the brain-spine relationship from a systems neuroscience perspective. We collaborate with surgeons, clinicians, basic scientists, and engineers to bridge the gap between pre-clinical and clinical research and to provide neural engineering-based therapeutic solutions.
Summer student Ben Rees successfully presented a poster titled ‘Closed-loop spinal cord stimulation creates a pre-locomotion brain state in rats with Parkinson’s disease‘ at the Society for Neuroscience 2021 virtual conference. The poster was based on analysis of neural data performed during his visit to the lab in Summer 2021.
Congratulations to undergraduate researchers Sidnee Zeiser and Andrea Brunton on successful funding of their UROP research proposals as Purdue School of Engineering and Technology students in Biomedical Engineering. The funding will support their research during the 2021-2022 academic year.
The Yadav lab is excited to welcome four new undergraduate research assistants to our team. They are each pursuing a degree in Biomedical Engineering at the Purdue School of Engineering and Technology, IUPUI.
The Yadav lab welcomes Benjamin Rees – an undergraduate student starting his senior year in the Fall majoring in Neuroscience at University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill. Ben is a Robertson Scholar and a premed student and he will be a research intern in the lab over the summer.
New publication in Brain Stimulation from the lab titled ‘Generating artificial sensations with spinal cord stimulation in primates and rodents‘.
The Yadav lab welcomes Jacob Slack who joined as a research engineering technician after finishing his undergraduate degree in Biomedical Engineering at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis.
