The Brain-Spine-Machine Interfaces Lab works at the interface of Neuroscience and Engineering. Our goal is to develop neural engineering-based therapies to treat neurological disorders and understand how neurological disorders impact the brain-spine network and its role in sensorimotor control. We collaborate with surgeons, clinicians, basic scientists, and engineers to bridge the gap between pre-clinical and clinical research and to develop therapeutic solutions.
Lab members took the first lab group photo after a day of talks and posters at the Stark Neuroscience Summer Symposium. Yadav lab members presented four posters at the symposium.
The lab welcomes medical students Halie Szilagyi and Anoop Chinthala as summer research interns through the IMPRS (Indiana University Medical Student Program for Research and Scholarship) program
Incoming Fall 2022 PhD student (currently research engineering technician) Jacob Slack, B.S. receives prestigious University Fellowship to jumpstart his graduate education.
Abstract ‘Understanding how stimulus periodicity impacts detection and discrimination of spinal cord stimulation-induced artificial sensations‘ accepted at International Neuromodulation Society INS 15th World Congress 2022.
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 summer internship in the lab in 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 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.
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.
