We are dedicated to developing clinical neuroprosthetic devices - in particular, focussed on visual prosthetics and epilepsy. In particular, we are aiming to create genetically enhanced bionics using a technique called neuroprosthetics

Primary lab activities

Neuroprosthetic applications

Visual brain prosthesis

For those blinded by glaucoma and other severe conditions

Retinal prosthesis

For those blinded by Retinitis Pigmentosa

Seizure Suppression

For epilepsy patients with focal seizures

On our OptoNeuro project we explored optogenetic forms of retinal prosthesis. We developed an optoelectronic stimulator array and associated goggle optics.

Our primary focus is to develop an optogenetic visual brain prosthesis to restore sight to the blind. Our focus has been on the implantable opto-electronics and control systems.

On our CANDO project, we have been exploring a closed loop implant to listen for seizure activity and to intervene with optogenetic stimulus to suppress activity. 

Neuroprosthetic applications

Control systems

For signal processing and communications

Implantable devices

For sensing, stimulation and diagnostics

Bio-microelectronics

For digital and analog sensing and driving of devices.

During this difficult time of COVID-19 as Neuroprosthesis lab team we adapted well to the current situation, we switched to the online lab meeting and all together we will continue to support each other and try to be innovative as ever till we return back to our normal routine. As PhD student, I’m trying to look at the positive effect of the current situation, so I set up a small new office in my home to continue doing online research, online courses and simulation beside the other home responsibilities. It is a challenging time for everyone but I am sure that this difficult time will pass.
