In this podcast, we continue our conversation with Dr. Maryam Shanechi, USC, Assistant Professor and Viterbi Early Career Chair in Electrical Engineering. Dr. Shanechi’s research focuses on decoding and manipulating brain signals. In this second podcast, she shares an overview of her work on Brain-Machine Interface (BMI) design and how she hopes to use BMIs to restore motor function, control anesthesia, and alleviate depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. Dr. Shanechi also shares how collaboration between mathematicians, computer scientists, electrical engineers, biomedical engineers, neurosurgeons and neuroscientists is crucial in developing neurotechnology. In addition, she gives us a glimpse into her goal of using BMIs to not just treat disorders, but to enhance our natural functions and capabilities.
