Mechanical Engineering Alumni Network: Window on the Brain

Registration Required • Mechanical Engineering Alumni Network

Learn how a mechanical engineering faculty member's research could provide new insight for human brain conditions like concussions and dementia.

The Department of Mechanical Engineering invites you to join us for our summer 2019 Mechanical Engineering Alumni Network event, Window on the Brain, featuring the research of Assistant Professor Suhasa Kodandaramaiah. Dr. Kodandaramaiah has developed a unique 3D-printed transparent skull implant for mice that, for the first time, allows researchers an opportunity to watch activity of the entire brain surface in real time.

The device, called a See-Shell, enables brain research that could provide new insight for human brain conditions such as concussions, dementia and Parkinson's disease. Hear about one of their first studies using the See-Shell, which examines how mild concussions in one part of the brain affect other parts of the brain as it reorganizes structurally and functionally.
