Riding the brain wave: ASU scientists research human electrical activity
Rosalind Sadleir and her research team are work on more accurate and less invasive ways to measure electrical activities in the human brain and body. The Fulton Schools associate professor of biomedical engineering is hoping that deeper knowledge of these electrical activities will reveal ways to more quickly diagnose neurological problems like Parkinson’s Disease and related health disorders. The team is developing a new imaging technique that more closely pinpoints where the electrical activity is occurring in the brain. The project involves a collaboration between ASU and experts at the Barrow Neurological Institute in Phoenix.
