Targeting Electrical Stimulation of Neural Tissue

Grant number: LP170101162 | Funding period: 2018 - 2021



This project aims to develop a platform of mathematical methods for targeting electrical stimulation of neural tissue. The proposed methods work by selecting the amplitude and polarity of each stimulating electrode in an array based on a desired pattern of neural activation. The algorithms are particularly applicable to high-density electrode arrays. The project will work with an Australian industry leader to provide significant benefits to Australia’s high-tech sector through increased knowledge and capacity.
