Sergey Stavisky

Neuroscientist & Neural Engineer

I'm an Assistant Professor at the University of California, Davis, where I co-direct the UC Davis Neuroprosthetics Lab. I work at the intersection of systems and computational neuroscience, neuroengineering, and machine learning. I'm trying to understand how the brain controls speech and arm/hand movements, and to use this knowledge to build brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) that treat brain injury and disease. My current primary focus areas are 1) building BCIs to restore lost speech and reach and grasp movements, 2) understanding how multiple cortical and subcortical areas prepare and execute speech and reach and grasp movements, and 3) developing and testing next-generation human-use intracortical electrophysiology probes that will allow for recording from and writing to many more neurons than currently possible.
