Next Generation Neural Interfaces (NGNI) Lab
About NGNI Lab
We are an international, multidisciplinary and highly dedicated team. We are creating innovative neurotechnologies that enable communication between the nervous system and electronic devices.
Our ultimate goal is to develop devices that interface with neural pathways for restoring lost function in sensory, cognitive and motor impaired patients. Current projects focus on brain machine interfaces, epilepsy, sleep and dementia.
The Next Generation Neural Interfaces (NGNI) Lab is part of the Centre for Bio-Inspired Technology and Circuits & Systems Research Group (EEE Department).
Lab Director: Timothy Constandinou
We are co-located within the Institute of Biomedical Engineering (Bessemer Building) on the South Kensington Campus.
Our projects are currently supported by the EPSRC, Wellcome Trust, UK DRI and industry. All our projects are collaborative, multidisciplinary and endeavour to explore the limits, extend current capabilities and develop next generation neural interface technology.
