Lab Research Focuses
Brain vital signs
Over 20 years of clinical translational R&D to enable the world's first brain vital sign monitoring from electroencephalography (EEG). Brain vital sign applications span across neurology, including concussion, traumatic brain injury, stroke, dementia, and many other neurological conditions. Scientific and technical work on deployable EEG platform technologies together with advanced signal processing, machine learning and algorithm development.
Brain plasticity and recovery
Extensive R&D in the utilization of functional brain imaging to monitor neuroplasticity changes over time during recovery of function. Clinical translation of neuroplasticity monitoring and assistive device technologies for improved rehabilitation treatment in neurological injury and/or disease. Scientific technical work on image and waveform analysis, assistive device robotics, and neuromodulation/neurostimulation.
Brain trauma and functional status
Long-standing R&D program that utilizes EEG along with other neuroimaging to provide objective evaluation in disorders of consciousness (DOC). Point-of-care evaluations utilize the HCS EEG, with research using magnetoencephalography (MEG) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to better understand the neural mechanisms of conscious awareness for functional evaluation following severe brain trauma.
