The Neurophotonics research group develops devices to interface with neural systems in an effort to understand aspects of neural processing. We work closely with leading neuroscientists and develop high-end technology using advanced semiconductor processing techniques.
There are three main research areas at the moment:
- microelectrode arrays for massively parallel recording from neural tissue
- technologies for optogenetics
- development of a retinal prosthesis to repair forms of blindness
We collaborate internationally with groups in Stanford, University of California Santa Cruz, and AGH University Krakow as well as groups locally.
