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.

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…

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.

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.

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.

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…

Learning Center at UC San Diego Wins $18-Million Renewal

November 1, 2011

…headquartered at UC San Diego in the Institute for Neural Computation, is helping to answer that question, thanks in part to an $18 million renewal grant from the National Science Foundation.

New Brain Mapping Tool Produces Higher Resolution Data During Brain Surgery

May 24, 2017

Researchers have developed a new device to map the brain during surgery and distinguish between healthy and diseased tissues. The device provides higher resolution neural readings than existing tools used in the clinic and could enable doctors to perform safer, more precise brain surgeries.

Brain monitoring takes a leap out of the lab

January 12, 2016

Bioengineers and cognitive scientists have developed the first portable, 64-channel wearable brain activity monitoring system that’s comparable to state-of-the-art equipment found in research laboratories. The system is a better fit for real-world applications because it is equipped with dry EEG sensors that are easier to apply than wet sensors, while…
