Therapeutic targets for neurological diseases
In this project, you will learn about how to identify biomarkers of neurological diseases from research papers, identify a potential stimulation target, as well as design a sample closed-loop stimulation paradigm. You will then summarize your findings in the communication methodology of your choice: research paper, interactive website, podcast, or another desired method. Prerequisites: 1) Strong high school level background in biology 2) Strong background in math, basic calculus preferred Optional: 1) Coding skills, in either Python or MATLAB, to implement closed-loop algorithm
