Stanisa Raspopovic

Stanisa Raspopovic received the B.S. and M.S. degrees (Hons.) from the Electrical and Biomedical Engineering faculty at University of Pisa, Pisa, Italy, in 2007, and the Ph.D. degree in biomedical robotics at the Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna, Pisa, Italy, in 2011. During 2007 and 2009, he was a Visiting Researcher at the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona, Spain, working on in vivo experimentation with peripheral nerve electrodes, for stimulation and decoding, and in 2010 at ETH Zurich, Switzerland, working on electrical epidural stimulation for spinal cord injury. He is a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Translational Neural Engineering Lab of the BioRobotics Institute, Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna, Pisa, and at the Translational Neural Engineering Laboratory of the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL). His research interests are in neural interface implants (both in peripheral nerve and in spinal cord), hybrid neural modelling, processing of the peripheral and central nervous system signals, understanding the neural control of movement and prostheses control.

Spatial and Functional Selectivity of Peripheral Nerve Signal Recording With the Transversal Intrafascicular Multichannel Electrode (TIME)
The selection of suitable peripheral nerve electrodes for biomedical applications implies a trade-off between invasiveness and selectivity. The optimal design should provide the highest selectivity for targeting a large number of nerve fascicles with the least invasiveness and potential damage... Read more
