The Santacruz Lab will open on October 15, 2018. If you are interested in joining the lab, please visit the Lab Members page for open positions.

Research in the lab focuses on the engineering advancement of neuroprosthetics and their therapeutic application to a growing range of neurological disorders. In order to advance future generations of neuroprosthetics, the lab will focus on neuroscientific questions related to understanding how neural patterns or states are learned, as well as how to manipulate these processes. This work will lay the foundation for the development in the lab of new neurotechnologies and paradigms for expanding the set of neurological disorders treated with brain-machine interfaces and neuroprosthetic devices.
