The Hai lab focuses on engineering minimally invasive tools to access the nervous system for neurobiological studies of brain function and neurological disorders. We develop electrical, magnetic and electromagnetic sensors for electrophysiology, and for wireless modalities such as functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging, magnetometry and more. We use nano-scale lithography and surface chemistry techniques and combine them with in vitro and in vivo neuroscience towards a broader understanding of the principles underlying neural network activity.
