Welcome to the Richardson Lab

The primary mission of the Richardson Lab in the Department of Neurosurgery is to restore lost function after brain injury or disease using brain-machine interface (BMI) technology. BMIs can modulate neural circuits, strengthen weakened pathways, and provide non-native conduits through which individuals can interact with the world. We strive to advance the clinical viability of this technology and, along the way, to provide new insights about brain physiology.
