Zhongming Liu

Zhongming Liu is an Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering at Purdue University. His lab has been dedicated to development of novel methods to integrate neural imaging, recording, stimulation and modeling for understanding and decoding brain functions. The goals of ongoing projects are 1) mapping neural circuits with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), 2) decoding neural activity during natural vision, 3) perturbing neural circuit to modulate brain and end-organ functions, as well as 4) developing MRI-compatible recording and stimulation devices towards achieving these goals.
