CMU CNBC researchers Steven Chase (Biomedical Engineering), Aryn Gittis (Biology) and Sandra Kuhlman (Biology) have received a $200,000 grant from the Shurl and Kay Curci Foundation to fund work on developing brain computer interfaces (BCIs) in mice. BCI has in recent years been used in primates to probe neural computation in motor systems and in the development of potential neural prosthetics (e.g. artificial limbs). By developing BCIs for mice, the team intends to bridge the different tools used with primates and with mice to further probe the neural basis of learning, memory and behavior.
