Welcome to ICSL at York U!
Our research group in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at York University conducts research on design, development, and experimental characterization of microelectronic circuits and systems for biomedical applications.
We are particularly interested in neuroscience/neurology applications such as monitoring, diagnosis, and treatment of neurological disorders. Our projects typically involve the development of highly-integrated fully-wireless systems on a chip (SoC) that capable of energy- and area-efficient sensing, computation, and actuation in various modalities. You may find further information about our ongoing and completed projects on the research page, and about our team on the people page
