Our team combines engineering, neuroscience, and medicine to develop novel nanomagnetic materials and spintronic nanodevices.
The radically smaller and more precise implantable sensors, actuators, and electrical current-delivering devices developed will be used to both treat disease and understand the nervous system, particularly signal transmission within the neural network. The knowledge gained will be used to not only develop more medical treatments but also advance the development of brain-computer interfaces, neuromorphic computing, and ultra low-power information processing technologies.
We anticipate these brain-inspired technologies will have far-reaching impacts in a wide range of fields involving computationally intensive tasks, from weather forecasting to molecular modeling and more. Further, we ultimately aim to uncover the physical and biological mechanisms of memory and consciousness.
