Pedram Mohseni, associate professor of electrical engineering and computer science and director of the BioMicroSystems Laboratory, spent the first half of June presenting his research in Seattle and Japan.
From June 2-3, Mohseni presented at a workshop on radio frequency assisted medicine in Seattle as part of the 2013 Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) radio-frequency integrated circuits symposium. He also presented a paper at the conference, describing an impulse radio ultra wideband transmitter for high-site-density brain monitoring.
This work was funded by a National Science Foundation-CAREER Award, and the paper was co-authored by Ali Ebrazeh, a graduate research assistant in the BioMicroSystems Laboratory.
At the June 12 IEEE Symposium on very-large-scale integration circuits in Kyoto, Japan, Mohseni presented another paper describing a neurochemical pattern generator integrated circuits for chemically resolved sensing and high-fidelity manipulation of brain dopamine levels in a rat model.
This work was funded by a National Institutes of Health-R03 grant, and the paper was co-authored by Bardia Bozorgzadeh, a graduate research assistant in the BioMicroSystems Laboratory, and the research group of Paul A. Garris of Illinois State University, who is collaborating with Mohseni on this work.
