Stanley B. Prusiner

Neuroscience is by far the most exciting branch of science because the brain is the most fascinating object in the universe. Every human brain is different - the brain makes each human unique and defines who he or she is.

Michio Kaku

The human brain has 100 billion neurons, each neuron connected to 10 thousand other neurons. Sitting on your shoulders is the most complicated object in the known universe.

Neil deGrasse Tyson

Everything we do, every thought we've ever had, is produced by the human brain. But exactly how it operates remains one of the biggest unsolved mysteries, and it seems the more we probe its secrets, the more surprises we find.

Ongoing Research

HA

Home Automation

The aim is to present a novel brain computer interface based home automation system using two responses - Steady State Visually Evoked Potential (SSVEP) and the eyeblink artifact, augmented by a Bluetooth based indoor localization system, to greatly increase the number of controllable devices. The hardware implementation of this system to control a table lamp and table fan using brain signals has also been discussed and state-of-the-art results have been achieved

Neuro-
degeneration

Ever wonder how millions of neurons work together when you indulge into an ice cream? Right now you might be recollecting the most recent time you had an ice cream. The brain is a brilliant piece of machinery and when it doesn't work like, as a well-oiled machine should, its utter chaos. My research focus is to find out how the machine starts to decrease in its functional efficiency under neurodegenerative diseases by utilizing graph theory and signal processing techniques

Neuromarketing Techniques

The Human Decision Making process is driven by two Systems, a Sub-conscious System which is driven by emotion resulting in people taking instant decisions and a Conscious System which is driven by reason & deliberation leading to a significant delay in Decision making. The Sub-Conscious System accounts for about 95% of daily decisions. Neuromarketing aims at understanding better the Sub-Conscious System with the aid of Neurological tools and Brain Response measuring technologies like ElectroEncephaloGraph (EEG) and use this knowledge to improve consumer experience of the product.
