Ultra-Thin, Flexible Probe Provides Neural Interface That’s Minimally Invasive and Long-Lasting

June 9, 2022

Researchers have developed a tiny, flexible neural probe that can be implanted for longer time periods to record and stimulate neural activity, while minimizing injury to the surrounding tissue. The probe would be ideal for studying small and dynamic areas of the nervous system like the spinal cord.

Transparent Brain Implant Can Read Deep Neural Activity From the Surface

January 11, 2024

A multidisciplinary team of researchers at UC San Diego developed a thin, transparent, flexible neural implant that can capture high-resolution information about activity deep inside the brain without damaging its delicate tissue.

Higher Resolution Brain Mapping Tech Wins Big at Research Expo

April 25, 2024

UC San Diego electrical and computer engineering PhD student Andrew Bourhis won the top prize at the 42nd annual Jacobs School of Engineering Research Expo for his work to integrate thin film transistors into easier-to-use flexible electrode arrays, which could enable much more precise mapping of human brain activity.

Software System Labels Coral Reef Images in Record Time

January 10, 2017

Computer scientists at the University of California San Diego have released a new version of a software system that processes images from the world’s coral reefs anywhere between 10 to 100 times faster than processing the data by hand.This is possible because the new version of the system, dubbed CoralNet…

Two UC San Diego Researchers Receive NIH High-Risk, High-Reward Awards

October 6, 2020

Two University of California San Diego researchers have received prestigious awards through the 2020 National Institutes of Health (NIH) High-Risk, High-Reward Research Program.

Researchers Translate a Bird’s Brain Activity Into Song

June 16, 2021

It is possible to re-create a bird’s song by reading only its brain activity, shows a first proof-of-concept study from the University of California San Diego. The study is an early step toward building vocal prostheses for humans who have lost the ability to speak.

Bioengineer Studying How the Brain Controls Movement

April 2, 2014

A University of California, San Diego research team led by bioengineer Gert Cauwenberghs is working to understand how the brain circuitry controls how we move. The goal is to develop new technologies to help patients with Parkinson’s disease and other debilitating medical conditions navigate the world on their own. Their…

Decoding Birds’ Brain Signals Into Syllables of Song

September 23, 2021

Researchers can predict what syllables a bird will sing—and when it will sing them—by reading electrical signals in its brain, reports a new study from the University of California San Diego. The work is an early step toward building vocal prostheses for humans who have lost the ability to speak.

Researchers ID ‘Conjunction Junction’ for Brain’s Navigation Function

July 9, 2015

Ever wake at night needing a drink of water and then find your way to the kitchen in the dark without stubbing your toe? Researchers at the University of California, San Diego say they have identified a region of the brain that enables you to do that – and generally…

Size Matters for Bee ‘Superorganism’ Colonies

November 10, 2021

Researchers studying honey bees have found that colony size matters in determining how members make decisions in the face of dynamic survival conditions. Large, established colonies are less likely to take chances while smaller colonies are much more willing to take risks.
