About Us

The Ayaz Lab is a multi-disciplinary lab focused on harnessing the intersection of neuroscience, neuroengineering, cognitive sciences, and human factors to develop systems and environments informed by neuroergonomics.

We are focused on exploring neuroergonomics for brain health and performance research. We develop and/or utilize diverse wearable neurotechnologies (mobile neuroimaging + multi-modal approaches and neurostimulation), physiological sensing, and behavioral methods to investigate human brain function in realistic and real-world environments, across the lifespan and from healthy (typical to specialized groups) to diverse clinical conditions (mental health to neurological).
