Biomechanics & Neural Engineering

Research Interests

Murphy is developing a model to describe how electrical microstimulation can be used to reprogram the brain in an anesthetized rat model. Ultimately, he hopes to use this model to facilitate the commercialization of an implantable brain-machine-brain device that functionally restores motor deficits of patients suffering from stroke or traumatic brain injury.
