About Us   


  • History: Founded in 1980 by Alan Gevins, an MIT engineer and internationally known neuroscientist, the lab is at the forefront of human cognitive neuroscience research and neurotechnology engineering research and development. The lab was previously part of the Langley Porter Neuropsychiatric Institute at the University of California School of Medicine in San Francisco, where Alan Gevins was the director from 1974 to 1980. Charles L. Yeager was the director of the prior director of the Langley Porter Neuropsychiatric Institute Clinical Neurophysiology Laboratory from 1947 to 1974. Dr. Yeager was a pioneer electroencephalographer, having founded the first EEG lab in the U.S. at the Mayo Clinic in 1935.


  • Scientific & Engineering Work: The lab's achievements are documented in 150+ peer-reviewed publications including 4 research reports in Science and 19 issued US patents.


  • Unique Focus: The lab has strived to extend the state of the art across four generations of human neurophysiological and multimodal brain imaging research and systems development. The lab's interdisciplinary scientists, engineers and university collaborators together constitute a uniquely focused team to advance knowledge and develop systems that measure neurophysiological signals of human cognition.
