Willsey Lab at The University of Texas at Austin

The lab focuses on intracortical brain-computer interfaces (iBCIs) as a potential therapy for paralysis. We aim to help develop an entry-level iBCI system for paralyzed human patients to address needs that cannot be met by today’s assistive technologies. Our research focuses on developing multi-effector control for fine motor movements and digital interfaces using non-linear decoding algorithms and novel approaches to account for neural instability.
