We develop brain-like devices that can mimic and restore cognitive functions.

To pursue this goal, we use a combined experimental and computational strategy to (1) develop next-generation modeling and neural interface methodologies, (2) investigate brain functions during natural behaviors, (3) understand how neural systems, such as the hippocampus, perform higher-order cognitive functions, and (4) build hippocampal prostheses that can restore memory functions lost in diseases or injuries.
