Researchers Create Novel Device to Measure Nerve Activity for Treatment of Sepsis, PTSD

November 14, 2022

A multi-campus research team has developed a novel device for non-invasively measuring cervical nerve activity in humans. The device, described in an article in Scientific Reports, has potential applications for supporting more personalized treatments for sepsis and PTSD.

SDSC Awarded NSF Grant for Triton Shared Computing Cluster Upgrade

July 29, 2019

The NSF has awarded SDSC a two-year grant worth almost $400,000 to deploy a new system called CC* Compute: Triton Stratus as an enhancement to the existing Triton Shared Computing Cluster (TSCC) campus High-Performance Computing (HPC) platform.

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.

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.

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…
