Stuart F. Cogan, PhD
Topic is Ultramicroelectrodes for High-density Recording and Stimulation of the CNS
Dr. Cogan is Professor of Bioengineering at The University of Texas at Dallas, conducting research on neural stimulation and recording electrodes, the electrode-tissue interface, implantable materials, and vision prostheses. His current research focuses on multielectrode arrays based on amorphous silicon carbide and the application of ultra-microelectrodes for chronic applications in the CNS. He received BSc and MS degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science from Duke University and a ScD in Materials Science from MIT. Prior to joining UTD in 2014, Dr. Cogan spent 30 years at EIC Laboratories, departing as Vice-President and Head of Materials Research. Besides neural devices, his research interests have included superconductivity, optical switching, crystal growth and thin-film deposition.
Lunch Available at 11:45am lecture from 12:00 to 1:00 pm
