Jonathan Brand

Jonathan’s research is focused on peripheral nerve stimulation—specifically vagus nerve stimulation.  Studying the mechanisms and modulation techniques of peripheral nerves is a logical precursor to studying the brain, since signals in nerves are much more predictable and easy to study.  Jonathan is developing novel stimulation techniques to improve state-of-the-art vagus nerve stimulation, with the intention of translating those techniques to brain stimulation as our knowledge grows.
