The Neuro-Engineering Lab
The lab specializes in neuronal interfaces, in particular we study new micro and nano devices aimed to interface directly and indeirectly with the brain. Current projects include: novel materials for artificial retina applications, and skin electronics for electrophysiology.
The lab was established in 2003 as one of six core laboratories of Tel-Aviv University Center for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. The lab is also affiliated with the Sagol School of Neuroscience and the Tel Aviv University School of EE. Support to the lab has been available through grants from the: ISF, ERC, GIF, Israeli MOS, Israeli Ministry of Industry and Trade, and Industrial partnerships.
Sleep Staging at Home
Objective. Circadian and sleep dysfunction have long been symptomatic hallmarks of a variety of devastating neurodegenerative conditions. The gold standard for sleep monitoring is overnight sleep in a polysomnography (PSG) laboratory. However, this method has several limitations such as availability, cost and being labour-intensive. In recent years there has been a heightened interest in home-based sleep monitoring via wearable sensors. Our objective was to demonstrate the use of printed electrode technology as a novel platform for sleep monitoring.
