We are interested in elucidating the multiple roles that sex hormones play in development of the nervous system and in regulating brain functions that influence gender identity, puberty, and reproduction.
This proposal aims to develop a new modality of noninvasive neural stimulation, sonomagnetic stimulation, that can generate an electrical current focused in a small volume deep in neural tissue, a goal not possible with any existing method of neurostimulation.
By measuring the aggregation of Tau protein in healthy older adults as well as those with Alzheimer's disease dementia using positron emission tomography imaging combined with high-resolution magnetic resonance imaging, this team hopes to predict who is at most risk for dementia in the future.
Our research focuses on the twin goals of investigating fundamental principles of human neuroscience and translating laboratory insights into clinically viable assistive devices for people with paralysis.
The Stanford Brain Rejuvenation Project is an initiative by leading aging researchers, neuroscientists, chemists, and engineers to understand the basis of brain aging and rejuvenation and how they relate to neurodegeneration.
We propose to connect diverse faculty to deepen interdisciplinary understanding of the neural mechanisms supporting addictive choice by combining conceptual, experimental, and clinical approaches that bridge historically disparate fields of inquiry.
Our goal is to develop the next generation of neural interfaces that match the resolution and performance of the biological circuitry. We will focus on two signature efforts to spearhead the necessary advances: high-density wire bundles for electrical recording and stimulation, and analog and...
