Computational Neuromodulation Laboratory


The Computational Neuromodulation Laboratory at Rhode Island Hospital and Brown University is ultimately interested in one question: how do we improve the quality of life for people living with neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s disease (PD)? To address this, we study their symptoms such as tremor and slowness, and we work to understand how people control their movements and make decisions. For people with PD, we aim to discover whether signals from the brain can help us predict when and what kind of dysfunction will occur. Throughout our work, we utilize state-of-the-art computational approaches toward developing the next generation of treatments.We are very grateful for the subjects enrolled in our research studies, many of whom are patients of Rhode Island Hospital. We are also indebted to the excellent research administration and clinical staff in our department and the many people at Lifespan whose work helps make ours better. We would also like to acknowledge the support we receive from the Norman Prince Neurosciences Institute as well as the Carney Institute for Brain Science.We are currently hiring a postdoctoral fellow with experience or interest in neuroscience, neurotechology, machine learning, and/or mathematical modeling. Please inquire with Dr. Lee.
