What is the overall goal of your project?
The overall goal of the project is to develop a wearable personalized closed-loop neurotechnology aimed at effectively augmenting human sensorimotor functions in altered gravity environments. 

What is the key challenge your project is trying to solve?
“Reverse-Engineer the Brain: The intersection of engineering and neuroscience promises great advances in health care”. Augmenting physical and cognitive capabilities of astronauts is the keystone of successful space exploration that are increasinglybecoming more challenging, particularly as NASA is taking steps to begin the next era of exploration of “Moon to Mars”. Wearable neurotechnology that sense and stimulate the brain have the potential to address sensorimotor deficits of astronauts in altered gravity environments. However, critical research and development efforts are needed to determine functional and technological requirements of such technology and to test its effectiveness to manage/mitigate sensorimotor impairments.

What is the impact on society your project has?
The outcomes of this project will help guide technology development efforts to support and improve astronaut health and performance for the new era of space explorations, translate key findings to significant healthcare domains (e.g., rehabilitation), and prepare engineers to tackle NAE Grand Challenges at the intersection of engineering and neuroscience.
