Break Barriers of BMI Research

Translate BMI Findings into Practice

We aim to become a research and development base for BMI key technologies and product prototypes

R&D Domains

Brain-Computer Fusion Computing Platform

Brain-machine interface (BMI) research is a multidisciplinary endeavor, encompassing such diverse fields as neuroscience, mechanical and electrical engineering, and computer science, to mention but a few.   Overcoming interdisciplinary barriers has become an absolute necessity for the development of BMI.  

We have built a national software platform for BMI, compatible with plenty of common optical, electrical, magnetic, ultrasonic BMI devices. We will provide tools to streamline signal acquisition, data analysis, and animal/clinical experiments.


Neural Signal Acquisition & Decoding

Efficient acquisition of brain signals is vital for BMI.

We develop sensors and devices that integrate optical, electrical, magnetic and ultrasonic methods, invasively or non-invasively,  to collect the most accurate neural signals in the most efficient way. 

We also develop a mathematical mapping from the brain activity to the outside world in the sensory and motor domain.

Adaptive Neuromodulation Therapies

We aim to understand and protect the brain. Neuromodulation can benefit patients with severe neurological diseases and mental disorders.

Based on the findings in the neural mechanism underlying brain diseases, we use adaptive neuromodulation therapies to alter neuronal and synaptic properties, thus alleviating symptoms. We study both noninvasive  (e.g., transcranial temporal interference stimulation) and invasive  (e.g., deep brain stimulation) techniques.
