ECE Assistant Professor Hui Fang (PI) was awarded a $479K NIH National Eye Institute grant in collaboration with the University of Utah for “Massively Multiplexed Gold Microprobe Arrays for Whole-Mouse-Brain Recording.” To understand how the brain works and cure brain diseases, neuroscientists and clinicians need brain-mapping devices. This project will develop new device concepts to enable ultra-large-scale introcortical electrode arrays, which can measure neural signals with high resolution but also over large areas of the brain. The devices here also have the potential to be chronically implanted to improve the performance of auditory, visual, and motor prosthetics.
