Welcome to the NIML
The Neurophysiological Imaging and Modeling Laboratory (NIML) at The University of Idaho Department of Biological Engineering is led by Bryn Martin. We conduct clinical translational research to investigate the pathophysiology of central nervous system (CNS) disorders and develop related medical technologies.
The mission of the NIML is to become a leading laboratory in the study of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) system in relation to neurological disorders and to contribute to the advancement of CSF related technologies through active transfer of our know-how to the clinic and to the medical technology sector. Our multidisciplinary team of collaborators includes neurosurgeons, neurologists, neuroradiologists, engineers, artists, biologists and medical device manufacturers.
Current research topics:
- CSF physiology, Chiari malformation & hydrocephalus
- Advanced MRI and ultrasound imaging and post-processing techniques
- Computational fluid dynamics simulation of biological flows
- Astronaut eye and brain biomechanics
- Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and Parkinson's
- Intrathecal drug and gene vector delivery and neuropheresis
- In vitro modeling
- Virtual reality for medical applications
- Current projects that we are working on.
- Past projects that have been completed.
- Youtube videos of our research.
- Publications based on NIML research.
- Background information on cerebrospinal fluid and the CNS.
- Facilities available at the NIML.
- Monthly lab meeting
- Courses related to Neural Engineering at University of Idaho.
- Links to related laboratories, conferences, and organizations.
- Software that we use in the lab.
- Visitor information including parking pass and directions.
Deadline to signup for the University of Idaho's Grand Challenges Program is September 16, 2016.
