(University of Pittsburgh) Using electrodes smaller than a human hair, researchers are able to connect mind to machine and interact with the human brain in revolutionary ways. Brain-computer interfaces, however, come with complications. University of Pittsburgh bioengineer Takashi D-Y Kozai received a $437,144 CAREER award from the NSF to improve the integration of the brain and technology in order to study long-standing questions in neurobiology and improve clinical applications of these devices.
