Welcome to our lab website. It contains information about our research, publications, funding, people, training programs available and provides links to important related websites.

Our lab is dedicated to understanding how therapeutic electrical stimulation affects the brain and nervous system. We also aim to develop a broader approach to neural prostheses, their development, based on solid principles of neuroscience, and implementation into clinical practice.

As a clinician-scientist who practices functional and stereotactic neurosurgery, I am most interested in the translation of laboratory findings to humans. I see and operate on patients with movement disorders, pain, epilepsy, nervous system injuries, and psychiatric conditions. While the electrical stimulation techniques available today are effective for many of these conditions, they do require refinement and further investigation to improve their performance and patient outcomes. Also, as the field of neural prosthetics expands, their potential to rehabilitate and improve the quality of life of the disabled is profound. 

Please browse, enjoy, and feel free to provide feedback or contact us for further information
