Space for Paralysis Lab

Brain-Computer Interface Research Aims

Our emerging brain-computer interface programme will provide for communication for those living with motor paralysis. We are developing platforms that utilise machine learning algorithms and require minimal training for the end user. We collaborate with a Cognitive Neuroscientists with Engineering & Computing Science and a Consultant Neurosurgeon. Our work will benefit paralysis and will effectively augment Artificial Intelligence algorithms.

Coordinate Frame Research Aims

We have provided evidence to support the idea that movement preparation is coded to a relatively greater extent within the frontal lobe. We have also reported that the parietal cortex represents a downstream computation mount; one in which final output coordinates frames are represented. These and experimental findings from certain other Labs provide support for the idea that the parietal and frontal cortical areas are crucial for the sensori-motor control of action.
