Abstract : The high density electrophysiological data acquisition system obtained through this DURIP grant provides important state-of-the-art instrumentation to communicate with individual neurons in the brain and the peripheral nervous system. The major theme of the research is to develop rodent models for the central and peripheral nervous system using microfabrication and microfluidics technologies that can be used to advance our understanding of how the nervous system works at cellular and molecular levels and to improve the diagnosis and treatment of neurological illness and disability. With this support, we have the necessary capability to build a high density communication highway between BCI and the brain.
