|BrainGate Turning Thought into Action|
Caroline Raclin is a clinical research administrator and research assistant in the Neurology Department at Massachusetts General Hospital. She joined the BrainGate team in 2008, working with Leigh Hochberg, M.D., Ph.D.
In addition to her work with BrainGate, Caroline is working with Dr. Hochberg and Sydney Cash, M.D., Ph.D. on a feasibility study at MGH and Brigham &Women’s Hospital of the “P300” BCI for people who have been acutely hospitalized with paralysis and an inability to speak. The P300 BCI was designed by Dr. Eric Sellers and colleagues at the Wadsworth Center in Albany, NY.
Along with these BCI endeavors, Caroline works in an epilepsy research lab with Dr. Cash, and is currently working on a project exploring if preictal high frequency oscillations, detected by intracranial electrodes, can successfully determine the onset of a seizure.
Caroline received her BA from Wesleyan University in 2008, and recently completed post-graduate chemistry courses at Boston University and Harvard University. She expects to pursue an MPH in Global Health and Epidemiology in the near future.
