Postdoctoral Research Scientist in Neuroscience
Shenghong He graduated with a D.Phil. in Engineering from South China University of Technology, China, in December 2017. His graduate work has mainly focused on developing real-time asynchronous brain-machine interface (BMI) methods and their applications by using electroencephalogram (EEG) and electrooculography (EOG). In May 2018, Shenghong joined Dr Huiling Tan’s Group as a Postdoctoral Research Scientist in Neuroscience. Shenghong’s current research is focused on developing BMI systems based on subcortical local field potentials recorded from people with Parkinson’s, and testing the efficacy of this new BMI system in neuroprosthetic control and neurofeedback training. His work involves collecting behavioural and electrophysiological data, analysing brain signals in real-time to decode relevant information, using this information to drive an external actuator, and, at the same time, investigating the neural basis of the learning evident in BMI use in humans.
