Excerpt from the news article:
Thanks to NSF funding Alper Erturk (ME), Costas Arvanitis (ME/BME), Brooks Lindsey (BME), and their colleagues are exploring ways to use vibrations and waves to develop enhanced imaging, diagnosis, and therapy of the skull-brain system, potentially paving the way for the treatment of brain tumors, detection of traumas and skull-related defects, mapping of the brain function, and neurostimulation, as well as new methods of drug delivery for treatment of diseases such as Alzheimer’s.
