[Research Focus]

Professor Gao’s research interests lie in two sub-branches of neural engineering: neural signal processing and brain computer interfaces (BCI). These two sub-branches of neural engineering use computational techniques to explore the inner workings of the brain through distinct perspectives.

The BCI study covers three aspects of human brain exploration: understanding the brain, protecting the brain, and creating the brain. The BCI technology has become a hot research topic in the areas of neuroscience, neural engineering, medicine, and rehabilitation.

Professor Gao’s long-term research goals are to create effective tools for the theoretical and practical analysis of EEG data, with broad applications ranging from basic neurophysiology studies through clinical studies to neural engineering that seek to shed light on how brain functions and why they operates in particular ways.
