Rosalind Sadleir Lab

Lab Head: Prof. Rosalind Sadleir

Research in the neuro-electricity lab is concerned with modeling and imaging biological conditions using targeted electrical methods. Our work varies from the very practical (including device design and commercial development) to the conceptual and theoretical.

Our emphasis is on understanding the electrical activity and properties of the brain. In particular, we are working on major projects centering on:

  1. understanding and modeling emerging brain stimulation therapies
  2. developing methods for direct detection of neural activity,
  3. understanding processes involved in perinatal brain injury in premature infants
