Information for Interested Students

As we enter the fall quarter, we’d like to provide some helpful information for prospective students.  Due to a high volume of interest in our lab, it may not be possible to get an individual response from one of our principal investigators or current graduate students.  Please read the appropriate page below FIRST, before sending an e-mail, and try to be as specific as possible with the name of the project you’re interested in working on.  Thanks!

Congratulations to our CSNE Summer students!

Last week marked the end of an intensive 10 week summer research program for three of our summer students.  Alex and Magena were participants in the CSNE Research Experience for Undergraduates, and Matt was a participant in the CSNE Research Experience for Veterans.  All three did a fantastic job of delivering a short presentation and then presenting posters.  Thanks for all of your hard work this summer and good luck!

Neural Security in the news

When VICE Motherboard visited us last month to talk about surgical hacking, they also took some time to learn about the lab’s work on neural security and brain hacking.  Several articles are now available:

VICE Motherboard: How Hackers Could Get Inside Your Head With ‘Brain Malware’

Daily Mail UK: Hackers could get inside your BRAIN: Experts warn of growing threat from monitoring and controlling neural signals

Naked Security by Sophos: How hacking brainwaves could reveal our deeply guarded secrets

This research is by Tamara Bonaci, Katherine Pratt, and Howard Chizeck.
