Welcome to the Telkes Lab where Neuromodulation meets Neural Engineering! We study electrophysiology of brain and spine in humans with the central goal of advancing the scientific understanding of the neurophysiological mechanisms of neuromodulation interventions (e.g., spinal cord stimulation and deep brain stimulation) in patients with chronic pain conditions and movement disorders (Parkinson’s Disease, Essential tremor) to
- optimize the current methods,
- develop more personalized therapies, and
- engineer new technologies to improve treatment and the daily lives of our patients.
We are a highly interdisciplinary and collaborative research group. We use a combination of neural engineering and biomedical signal processing techniques, neurophysiological methods (including local field potentials, single units, EEG, ECG, EMG signals), as well as clinical research techniques to tackle our research questions.
