Slutzky Neuroprosthetics Laboratory

About Our Lab

Our laboratory uses neural prosthetics, specifically human-machine interfaces, to pursue the goals of improving both our understanding of brain function as well as restoring movement and communication to people with neurologic impairment from disorders such as stroke, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, and ALS.
