With our collaborators, we are focused on micro-fabrication and application of microchannel neural-electrode neuroprostheses. The clinical focus is repair of damaged peripheral nerves, integration of recording and stimulating electrodes into the nervous system for fine-tuned control of prosthetic limbs, and a closed loop recording-stimulating neuroprosthetics for artificial bladder control.
