Lucas Lab

Translational Neuromodulation

The Lucas lab, known as the Translational Neuromodulation Lab, develops neuroprosthetic devices to restore movement and sensation to paralyzed limbs following neurological injury. In addition, the TNL develops cognitive prosthetics to augment memory for those suffering traumatic brain injury or dementia.

Our interdisciplinary team unites electrical engineers, mechanical engineers, biomedical engineers, neuroscientists and neurosurgeons behind a common vision. We have approved protocols ranging from numerical analysis, animal work and approved human trials.
