Research Positions in Neuroscience

The Neuroelectromagnetic Oscillations (NEMO) Lab, directed by Sarang Dalal and recently relocated to Aarhus University (Denmark), is recruiting postdocs and PhD students for a large ERC-funded project.

The ERC project will examine in detail how neural oscillations communicate information between the retina and cerebral cortex in humans, during presentation of various types of visual stimuli as well as during rest. This will involve several recording techniques, primarily magnetoencephalography (MEG) and electroretinography (ERG), with some components involving scalp EEG, intracranial EEG in epilepsy patients, and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS).

Neural Implant Enables Patients: Biomedical innovation

A paralyzed ALS patient uses a brain implant to steer a computer cursor to various targets.

Typing six words per minute may not sound very impressive. But for paralyzed people typing via a brain-computer interface (BCI), it’s a new world record.

To pull off this feat, two paralyzed people used prosthetics implanted in their brains to control computer cursors with unprecedented accuracy and speed. The experiment, reported today in Nature Medicine, was the latest from a team testing a neural system called BrainGate2. While this implant is only approved for experiments right now, researchers say this demonstration proves that such technology can be truly useful to quadriplegics, and points the way toward regular at-home use.
