We are a multidisciplinary team of neuroscientists, engineers, health professionals, artists and students developing neurotechnologies for the restoration and rehabilitation of cognitive-motor function in people with mental and movement disabilities. We also work at the interface of the arts and engineering, uncovering the relations between perception, cognition and action and brain activity across the life span. Our work is funded by NSF, NIH, VA, Mission Connect, Cullen Foundation and others and supported by the biomedical industry.

The Brain on Arts study is funded by the National Science Foundation (#BCS 1533691) and is led by engineering professor Jose Luis Contreras-Vidal — to study connections between the brain and creativity, expression, and the perception of art.
