Overview

NCAN is the only facility currently exploring adaptive neurotechnology with patient-based clinical research.

Through extensive research, the scientists and engineers at NCAN have been innovating and testing adaptive methods and systems that interact with the CNS in real time to execute three important projects: guiding beneficial CNS plasticity; restoring lost neuromuscular functions; and characterizing and localizing brain processes both spatially and temporally. Each of these three projects involves clinical, scientific, and technical activities. You can learn more about each of them by clicking on them.

NCAN Technology Research & Development Project 1 – Guiding Beneficial Plasticity

NCAN Technology Research & Development Project 2 – Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) - Based Rehabilitation

NCAN Technology Research & Development Project 3 – Characterizing and Modifying Cortical Processes

These three Research Projects involve a wide range of different approaches that can be grouped into five Research Areas based on how they use adaptive neurotechnologies to help people. You can learn more about these five Research Areas by clicking here.
