About Us

The Neuroergonomics and Neuroengineering for Brain Health and Performance Research Lab (Ayaz Lab) is a cutting-edge, interdisciplinary research facility dedicated to harnessing the convergence of neuroscience, neuroengineering, cognitive sciences, psychology, human factors, biomedical engineering and sciences. Our primary mission is to leverage these fields to study brain function in health and clinical conditions and during realistic or real complex everyday tasks.

Our core focus revolves around the exploration of neuroergonomics in the realm of brain health and performance research. To achieve this, we employ a wide array of state-of-the-art wearable neurotechnologies, mobile neuroimaging and multi-modal approaches, including neurostimulation. Additionally, we make use of physiological sensing and behavioral research methods to delve into the intricacies of human brain function within realistic, real-world environments. Our research spans the human lifespan, encompassing diverse demographic groups, ranging from healthy individuals, including both typical and specialized groups, to those with various clinical conditions, such as mental health and neurological disorders.

Ayaz Lab aims to be at the forefront of interdisciplinary research, both developing and utilizing cutting-edge tools and techniques to explore the connections between the human brain, performance, and the environments. Our work extends to a wide spectrum of individuals, from the healthiest to those facing various clinical challenges as well as application areas.
