Kozai, Takashi

Associate Professor, Bioengineering, Pitt

Research Interests

1) Understanding the biology and material science of bi-directional communication (recording and stimulation) between brain and neurotechnologies, in order to guide intelligent-design (data driven) of more efficacious and longer lasting neural interfaces.

2) Elucidating the role of non-neuronal cells in neurodegeneration and neuroregeneration in brain injuries and neurodegenerative diseases. (Multiple Sclerosis, Alzheimer's, Autism)

3) Manipulating non-neuronal cells to influence the function of neuronal network activity.
