TNSRE serves the community of biomedical engineers and clinical researchers who work at the intersection of neuroscience and physical medicine. We publish novel approaches and technologies for better understanding neural systems, human movement, and the relationships between them, with a focus on assistive devices that improve life for patients, for practicing clinicians, and for everyday use.
Zachary B. Kagan
Student Member, IEEE. Zachary B. Kagan (S’12) received the B.S. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Florida, Gainesville, FL, USA, in 2012, and the M.S. degree in bioengineering, in 2015, from the University of Utah, Salt Lake City, UT, USA, where he is currently a graduate student pursuing the Ph.D. degree, expecting to graduate in Spring 2017. His research interests include in vivo studies of electromagnetic nerve stimulation to reduce stimulator size and improve power efficiency, and signal processing techniques for noise reduction techniques of neural data for motor decodes.
