Associate Professor of Neurology
McCormick School of Engineering and Physiology
Chicago, Illinois – United States
Dr. Slutzky has an MD and PhD from Northwestern University, and is a board-certified neurologist at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. Dr. Slutzky’s research interests lie at the interface between neurology and engineering, with the goal of using engineering principles and neural prosthetics technologies to improve function in patients with impaired movement from neurological disorders. These include brain machine interfaces to repair brain function in traumatic brain injury and to restore efficient communication to locked-in patients by decoding speech. In addition, they include using myoelectric computer interfaces to reduce abnormal muscle coordination after stroke.
