The Neural Systems Engineering and Control Laboratory (NSEC-Lab) at University of Connecticut develops numerical methods, computational models, and digital control solutions for neural prosthesis.

Our mission is to develop and validate intelligent systems for adaptive neural stimulation, personalized treatments for neural disorders, and assistive tools for neurological impairments. Our research combines stochastic modeling, machine learning, dynamical systems, control theory, and neural data (e.g., EEG, spike trains, calcium images, etc.), and it spans several applications, including Parkinson's disease, dystonia, epilepsy, brain-computer interface, and perception.
