Neurophotonics, University of Strathclyde

w: http://www.strath.ac.uk/photonics/research/neurophotonics/

The Neurophotonics research group develops devices to interface with neural systems in an effort to understand aspects of neural processing. We collaborate closely with leading neuroscientists and develop high-end technology using advanced semiconductor processing techniques.

There are three main research areas at the moment: Microelectrode arrays for massively parallel recording from neural tissue; Technologies for optogenetics; Development of a retinal prosthesis to repair forms of blindness.

We collaborate internationally with groups in Stanford, University of California Santa Cruz, the Salk Institute in San Diego and AGH University Krakow as well as many groups locally.

Neurophotonics, University of Strathclyde is part of Institute of Photonics, University of Strathclyde.
