    Biography
      Bijan Pesaran is interested in understanding large-scale circuits in the brain and how to engineer novel brain-based therapies. Bijan completed his undergraduate degree in Physics at the University of Cambridge, UK. After a year in the Theoretical Physics department at Bell Labs Murray Hill, he went on to earn his PhD in Physics at the California Institute of Technology. He then made the switch to neuroscience as a postdoctoral fellow in Biology at Caltech. Bijan has been on the faculty at New York University since 2006, where he is currently an Associate Professor of Neural Science in the Center for Neural Science. In 2013, he was a CV Starr Visiting Scholar at the Princeton Neuroscience Institute at Princeton University. Among other honors and awards, Bijan has received a Burroughs-Wellcome Career Award in the Biomedical Sciences, a Sloan Research Fellowship, a McKnight Scholar Award, the National Science Foundation CAREER Award and is a member of the Simons Collaboration for the Global Brain.

    Abstract

    Systems neuroscience offers new and powerful conceptual frameworks for testing the fundamental brain mechanisms that support behavior. More recently, modern neurotechnologies with translational potential are also emerging, offering new ways to precisely measure and manipulate human brain function. The intersection of these two domains is poised to create a new science of the human brain, Human Brain Science, that will connect the moment-by-moment changes in activity of billions of neurons to our mental experience and behavior. In this talk, I will explore the intersection of translational neurotechnology and systems neuroscience. First, I will present our work studying the uniquely human faculty of speech, drawing on systems neuroscience paradigms first developed in non-human primates. I will then discuss translational neurotechnology, focusing on our work to develop high-resolution, flexible thin-film electrode arrays in non-human primates, and concluding with our on-going efforts to deploy thin-film electrode arrays to study and treat the human brain.
