Research Description:

The Neural Interface Technology Research and Optimization (NITRO) Laboratory is part of the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The goals of our lab are to 1) develop new devices for recording from and stimulating neural tissue, 2) design these devices to be both durable for long-term implantation and safe for use in humans and animals, and 3) use these technologies in a variety of situations, from use in a basic physiology lab recording from single neurons, to clinical settings where people with motor disabilities might benefit from a brain-computer interface or other neural prosthetic communication device.
